Logo Acquires More Jaw-Dropping Questions and Answers for Its Late-Night Lineup with Pickup of Second Season of Provocative Talk Show "1 girl 5 gays"

New Season of "1 girl 5 gays" premieres Monday, February 7th at Midnight on Logo

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2011 -- Logo announced today that it has acquired the rights to air the second season of MTV Canada's cult hit talk show, "1 girl 5 gays." Not for the bashful or faint at heart, "1 girl 5 gays" pushes the envelope in a series of quick fire, roundtable question and answer sessions with the namesake "1 girl and 5 gays" that would make most people blush. In this "Hot Topics for 20-Somethings," our adorable straight girl host throws out outrageous questions of sex, love and life to a rotating panel of take-no-prisoners and tell-it-like-it-is gay boys. Not your typical late-night "interview couch," think of it as an adult version of "Truth or Dare," without the dares. Largely unedited for content and definitely not safe for daytime, "1 girl 5 gays" will continue to anchor Logo's weeknight, late-night lineup where the first season increased ratings in its Midnight time slot +55% compared to the network's Q4 2010 average for that time period. The first of the second season's 40 episodes premieres on Monday, February 7th at Midnight.

"'1 girl 5 gays' has been a sleeper hit for Logo," said Marc Leonard, Senior Vice-President of Multiplatform Programming, Logo. "Without much initial fanfare, and after much pleading from fans of the show on AfterElton.com, it was added to our schedule and quickly became one of the most tweeted and talked about shows on the network. We know our viewers can't wait to see what boundaries will be pushed in the second season, and we're all just a little bit scared."

"1 girl 5 gays" brings together host Aliya-Jasmine Sovani with a panel of five of her best gay friends for frank, funny, and always fierce discussions on sex and relationships. The alternating group of gay men, chosen for their sass, individuality, and confidence, never shy away from outrageous or taboo subject matters. Each member of the rotating panel is smarter, funnier and more honest than the next, and the laugh-riot that ensues is more like late night smack-talking with your college besties than your typical 11pm strip. "1 girl 5 gays" � she asks, and they do tell.

"1 girl 5 gays" is produced by Garrett Wintrip with Alex Sopinka as Executive Producer and Pam De Montmorency as Supervising Producer. Mark McInnis is Vice President of Production, Much MTV Group and Brad Schwartz is Senior Vice President and General Manager, Much MTV Group. Bob McLaughlin is Senior Vice President, Production, CTV and Susanne Boyce is President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc.
