....I don't know if I have Logo Network.
Logoonline has just about everything to watch for free.
I have it on Direct TV. Had to look it up.
Thanks for the info. I like that.
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...)
^ It was never on Bravo. It was on Sundance though.
Really? Weird... either way channel I got to channel I don't...
Good news for him.Logo TV get much more people to watch than Sundance.
But what they say to describe the show make me a little uncomfortable,a docusoup show... 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
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):
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.
Sundance Channel is subscription-based so they don't have commercials or ratings. Obviously the show was successful and splashy enough for the network to approve a season-ending double episode special.
The fact that LOGO has paid for the right to re-air Season 1 of BGJW before Season 2 proves that the new network recognizes the strength of the show.
Sundance subscription based? Not where I live. It's just part of the basic cable service and yes, they definitely know who's watching which of their shows.
Wow, good for Johnny. Logo has a much bigger audience than Sundance.
It's part of my basic (cheapest) cable service too. And there were definetly commericals- tons of them...
I don't know Logo and I was interested in this channel (I already watch Sundance) that is bigger than Sundance where I like the varied and interesting programming. Now I understand Logo's targeted demographic. Logo describes itself as "The LGBT world has a place all its own with Logo, the new lesbian & gay network from MTV Networks. Whether it's on TV, online, or on your mobile, Logo brings you the stories, shows and news you won't see anywhere else. From original series and films to groundbreaking documentaries to LGBT news and more." From MTV it would be big.
Not trying to be argumentative because I think we are all fans of the show, or at least interested.
Sundance Channel has what the industry calls 'interstitials' during act breaks in episodes promoting their own programming instead of commercials. Much of their programming has one major sponsor that covers the arc of the series season. For example if a car manufacturer is the sponsor of an environmental show, there might be an interstitial about the manufacturer's green policies but never an advertisement for the product itself. That is how the network is able to produce their own programming.
Sundance definitely knows who is watching their shows and that is why they approved and put more money into producing a season-ending special but they do not have traditional ratings that are published.
If you're sure you've seen numbers, please share. Otherwise, it's misleading to say BGJW 'was in the bottom quarter of Sundance ratings and not improving'.
Sean - I didn't make that up. I read it somewhere I thought was authoritative enough that I actually remembered it so I'll try to dig it up. I'm not trying to be argumentative either. Regardless, the show has gone from one niche channel to another but perhaps a larger audience.
Thanks, Sylvia. Does that mean "2011 January" winter or "2011 December" winter?
This is great for me. Sundance is part of the Showtime package for me but Logo is free so yay. I would imagine it's Jan 2011. They would want to show the first part before the second. JMO
Oh, no. I can't stand Logo.
Maybe Johnny can work his way into the cast of "The A-List" .
He'd fit RIGHT IN...
I'd like to see Johnnie and Evan as an "Amazing Race" team.
Ha, I think many of us would
This explains why I couldn't find the show to DVR it. I had the title wrong. So thanks, Sylvia!
