Creator: LOGO
aka: Logo

LOGO is a LGBT-themed cable channel launched in 2005 out of the ruins of the Music Video channel VH-1 Mega Hits (which seemed to solely exist to air Nickelback and Matchbox 20 videos on a never-ending loop), outlasting the similarly themed Q Network that came out (pardon the pun) around the same time. The channel features a varied line up, including news and original programming, though travelogues, talk shows and stand-up and sketch comedy seem to beare significant parts of the schedule.

Currently, the most successful show on the channel is Rupauls Drag Race, a Reality Show where drag legend RuPaul crowns "America's Next Drag Superstar". Drag Race is responsible for saving Logo from Network Decay, as it revitalized interest in the channel after the cancellation of Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple in All the World (a raunchy cartoon animated with Lego bricks) and Noah's Arc (a soap opera featuring primarily gay men of color).

The channel also includes repeats of shows popular with the GLBT crowd, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Roseanne, and The Golden Girls. Logo also owns the popular blogs After Ellen and The Backlot (formerly "After Elton").
