Logo cancels its gay reality series The A-List

MTV's sister channel moving away from LGBT-only programming

Logo cancels its gay reality series The A-List
20 June 2012

It was back in February that Logo, the MTV sister channel that had been dedicated to LGBT content since its launch in 2005, announced that it would be going more mainstream.

A sure sign of that new direction came this week when it was learned that the channel is canceling The A-List, the Real Housewives-style reality show that was marketed with the slogan ‘housewives with balls.’

Logo has not made an official announcement but cast member Reichen Lehmkuhl has tweeted about the cancellation: ‘The A-List New York will NOT be back. Official word. So long boys. What a long, strange, trip that was.’

Lehmkuhl, who first achieved reality show fame by winning CBS’s The Amazing Race with then-partner Chip Arndt, later dated Lance Bass and appeared on A-List with current boyfriend, model Rodiney Santiago.

He explained in a separate Facebook post: ‘Logo said, ‘[they] are changing directions. A-List isn’t a match for that direction.’
