Logo Announces 3rd Season Pick Up of "RuPaul's Drag Race" and 2nd Season of "Untucked"

NEW YORK, April 28 -- Monday night's 9PM season two finale of "RuPaul's Drag Race" took home the crown as Logo's highest-rated telecast, averaging a .8 in the P18-49 demo. This was also Logo's most watched telecast ever, drawing in 633,000 total viewers who witnessed Tyra Sanchez as she was named "America's Next Drag Superstar."

"RuPaul's Drag Race" was consistently the most watched series this year on Logo, which is available in 46 million households. Additionally, "RuPaul's Drag Race" has become the most streamed series ever on LogoTV.com with more than 9.8 million video streams season-to-date -- a 184% increase over season 1 streams (source: Omniture). To relive the glitz and the glam of the season, viewers can catch the series' full episodes and extra content at LogoTV.com.

"'RuPaul's Drag Race' has consistently shown that even underdogs can be champions," said Dave Mace, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Logo. "And today, this 'little-show-that-could' has become a national and GLAAD Media Award-winning phenomenon."

Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell, Executive Producers from WOW Productions collectively commented, "In our 500 years in show business, it's hard to remember a series that has stirred such a deep and passionate following. The fact that 'RuPaul's Drag Race' celebrates what others have chosen to denigrate makes its crossover success that much more fabulous."

Fresh off the heels of the second season success, Logo announced the season three pickup of "RuPaul's Drag Race" as well as the second season pickup of "Untucked." "RuPaul's Drag Race" order has been upped from 12 to 16 episodes and "Untucked" from 10 to 13 episodes. The new seasons are slated to premiere on the network in winter of 2011.
