booo! So sad it moved from Bravo (I don't want to watch on my computer. My computer is tiny.)

It's like when all the skating goes to Universal Sports so I can't see it (although, at least this does have an online option...)

Good news for him.Logo TV get much more people to watch than Sundance. :D

But what they say to describe the show make me a little uncomfortable,a docusoup show... :rolleyes:I know a reality show can't be all true,but this describtion sounds like they will write a weird script to get attention.Hope they won't make Johnny a totally nerd :rolleyes:

I watch Sundance Channel a lot. Lots of good foreign/subtitled films. I wonder why Sundance didn't pick up the second season option for BGJW. I thought it did well in the ratings.

IIRC, it was in the bottom quarter of Sundance ratings and not improving. Also, the producers may have wanted more than Sundance was willing to pay.

Whee, 19 episodes ... months of bountiful fodder for The Soup and the Dish!

Not really new fodder - except for what Logo produces (and we don't know that is yet) these are all repeats and other shows, as you've cited, don't tend to cover repeats. Since Johnny's show is time-specific (relating to certain competitions certain years), it's going to be new news to some people but old news to anyone who followed the series on Sundance.

Any new fodder will air on Logo as (from the press release):

SEASON 2 (10 episodes – 30 minutes) Premieres Summer 2011

I've clarified my first post in this thread above.

Ah, shoot. I didn't read past "Premieres Winter 2011". ;) Logo's and my definitions of "premieres" are not quite the same.
