"Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," the most-watched show ever on Bravo, drew fair but unspectacular ratings in a special Thursday telecast on Bravo's parent network, NBC. The edited-down version attracted 6.7 million viewers, not quite matching the 8 million who watched its lead-in, a rerun of "Will & Grace," according to Nielsen Media Research. Both series came in far behind CBS' airing of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which attracted 13.3 million viewers. -- Greg Braxton

Continuing the flow of programs between cable and broadcast networks, a condensed version of Bravo's makeover show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" will repeat Thursday on NBC, following "Will & Grace." NBC owns Bravo, which delivered record ratings last week by its admittedly modest standards with the program's premiere. More than 1.6 million people watched the show -- about five times the cable channel's average second-quarter audience, based on Nielsen Media Research estimates.
