The second season of the breakout hit, "Blow Out" featuring salon owner Jonathan Antin styled its way to a strong start by posting double and triple digit increases versus the time period average at 9:00 p.m. ET last night, leading into "Queer Eye." The premiere achieved the highest delivery of adults 18-49 and 25-54, excluding the 'Queer Eye' franchise, since the premiere of season three of "Celebrity Poker Showdown" on July 8, 2004.

"Bravo has never had a more aggressive line-up of original programming than we do this summer and this is an absolutely great way to kick it all off," said Lauren Zalaznick, President of Bravo. "The reinvigorated 'Queer Eye' continues to be the leader in a lineup that includes nine series launches over twelve weeks."

On Sunday, June 5 at 8:00 p.m. ET, Bravo premiered the first interview with Angelina Jolie on a new episode of "Inside the Actors Studio." The episode averaged 0.52 household rating (up 53 percent season to date), 514,000 in total viewers (up 52 percent season to date), 396,000 Adults 18-49 (up 149 percent season to date), and 424,000 adults 25-54 (up 132 percent season to date).
