New York, NY, January 21, 2016 - Fresh off the heels of the highest rated year in the network's 10-year history, Logo is continuing to break records as the only cable network to post ten consecutive quarters of year-over-year growth. The network has no plans to slow down as it heads into 2016 with the eighth season of mega-hit "RuPaul's Drag Race," along with a diverse slate of programs and high profile tentpole events. Logo today announced the greenlight of two brand new series - "Gay For Play Game Show Starring RuPaul" and "Gay Skit Happens" - plus a third season of "Cocktails & Classics," Michael Urie's love letter to classic films.

Sketch comedy series "Gay Skit Happens" premieres Monday, February 8 at 10pm ET/PT. Daniel Franzese ("Mean Girls," "Looking," "Recovery Road") hosts the premiere and joins the cast of comics to take on Valentine's Day and tackle all things funny in love, dating, relationships and sex in the age of social media.

A second season of "RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race" will premiere later in the year.
