With over a million viewers anyone would have to call Bravo TV’s first ever award show a huge hit. The majority of those viewers were between the ages of 18-49. Not only did the award show do great, but half of the viewers also watched thepre-show hosted by Tim Gunn of Project Runway.
Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List is more than just a hilarious reality show featuring the life of comedienne Kathy Griffin. According to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) the show is also doing something right when it comes to representing the gay community.
The Bravo Emmy Award-winning series took home a GLAAD Award for Outstanding Reality Program this weekend at the 19th annual GLAAD Media Awards. The awards were created to honor mainstream media for fair, honest, and inclusive representation of the gay and lesbian community. This is the first time Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List has received a nomination.
“God knows I can’t do anything without my gays,” Griffin said of her win. “I am truly honored because of the respect I have for the gay community. Besides the fact that they are so good at coming together, mobilizing, getting the word out there about discrimination – which is still very much alive – they are still the best damn laughers in the world and I will have them as long as they’ll have me.”
The 19th Annual GLAAD Media Awards will be telecast on Bravo on Friday, June 27th at 7:00 PM (ET), and will be followed by a telecast of Brokeback Mountain, which won the 2006 GLAAD Award for Outstanding Film.
Griffin’s show wasn’t the only Bravo show to grab a nomination for the GLAAD Outstanding Reality Program award. Three of the five nominees are Bravo’s: Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, Project Runway, and Work Out. The other two nominees were Sci-Fi’s Who Wants to be a Superhero? and Fox’s Trading Spouses.
