Looks like All Stars is moving from VH1 to Showtime.
I know this has been rumoured for a while but if this move is permanent, it is the end of Drag Race in my opinion. Showtime is a premium cable channel in the US and doesn’t have anywhere near the reach of VH1. While it probably means bigger budgets and more cash for production, it will also mean much lower viewing figures and loss of relevance.
FFF the spoilers were right
A confounding decision, but Showtime really treats its programming like a Nicki Minaj singles run.
That's probably why they moved All Stars and not the main show. They probably figured the type of person who would be tuning into All Stars is someone who's invested enough in the show/queens to want to see them on TV again.
At least with the main show, they might still pull in casual viewers who've heard about the show but aren't committed or diehard fans. There's probably less of that type of audience tuning into All Stars
It's still a strange decision but I can kind of understand the reasoning behind it.
(Also PSA: anyone with a student Spotify account can get a Showtime subscription for free)
What about the poor gays that can't afford Showtime Ru.
I wonder what they mean by a 'special edition' of All Stars.
Lemme confer with my boyfriend and maybe a good judy will share ha Showtime subscription xo
What a bizarre decision.
Showtime might mean it ends up on Sky Atlantic or Sky Comedy in the UK? As they have a deal with most if not all other Showtime content.
Fitting that even when I finally have VH1 I’ll still have to get my drag race from the same site I get my porn.
I believe they’re putting the “Drag Race Celebrity” under the All Stars umbrella, which is what will fall under the Showtime umbrella. Sounds like the main show will still air on VH1.
RuPaul...crumbling under the weight of her own hubris a.k.a. the crusty make-up from AJ & The Queen and the gays being too poor for Showtime.
Where was it rumored?
What a strange choice. Also special edition? Why?
