'Eye'-Catching

''Queer Eye'' sets Bravo rating records. The much-hyped ''Queer Eye for the Straight Guy'' is the most-watched show in Bravo's history

The five gay guys who star on ''Queer Eye for the Straight Guy'' aren't content just to make over ill-groomed heterosexuals -- they're also doing the same for their network, Bravo. The show's premiere Tuesday night was the highest-rated show in the history of the cable network, attracting 1.16 million viewers, according to a network press release. That's eight times more viewers than usually tune in to the network between 10 and 11 p.m. The show stars ''the Fab Five'' -- a quintet of gay men who are experts in food, grooming, interior design, fashion and culture. Like a superhero team, they use their abilities for the good of mankind, helping to rescue hairy, uncultured straight men -- and their ugly homes.
