Jay and his boys get a visit from the Queer Eye crew

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Is a "Queer Eye" plus Jay Leno (news - Y! TV)'s big chin the right look for good ratings? Television network NBC thinks so.


With new show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" having become a smash hit for the Bravo cable TV channel, Bravo parent NBC said on Monday it will bring the show's "Fab Five" makeover artists onto "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" for a special "make-better" session with show host Leno.


Leno's restyling is scheduled for Aug. 14, and a network spokeswoman said NBC would also air a special half-hour episode of "Queer Eye" earlier in the evening.


"Queer Eye," in which five gay men with expertise in grooming, food, fashion, culture and interior design put some style into the appearance and apparel of a heterosexual man, has been a major ratings winner for Bravo, drawing the network's highest audience numbers ever.


An initial repeat of the show on NBC proved to be an average ratings performer, but the hype around "Queer Eye" continues to build in U.S. popular culture since that special broadcast. NBC aims to keep promoting it heavily as interest in the show grows.


While audiences have taken warmly to "Queer Eye," some of the nation's top TV critics have been mixed in their reviews.


"In this long summer of instantly disposable reality TV, cable's Bravo channel manages to break through the pathetic pack by slyly subverting one of the genre's conventions," TV Guide critic Matt Roush wrote in this week's issue. "Yes, the "fab five" can be bitchy, but as they bond with their subject, there's a lot of heart in the way they root for him."


Washington Post critic Tom Shales took a different tack, though, in his initial review of the show.


"Forced to choose between scorn and condescension, gay people could hardly be blamed for preferring the latter -- and thus might not object to the stereotypes on parade in the series," he said last month.

You can watch it old Jay Leno on this Thursday or Friday on NBC in about 2 am or something like that. NBC always aired last week Jay Leno and Conan O'Brein everyday.
