“With eight consecutive quarters of growth and the highest ratings in Logo’s history, we are aiming even higher,” said Chris McCarthy, general manager of Logo TV and MTV2. “From new series ‘Food to Get You Laid’ to a special edition of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ this summer we are set to own the post brunch party with our new ‘Sunday Funday’ block.”
