Could RuPaul's daytime talk show pilot signal the end of RuPaul's Drag Race?
Variety's report that RuPaul Charles will host a daytime talk show pilot could mean he'll have a lot of TV work on his plate. The host of RuPaul's Drag Race is also working on a Hulu series based on his life while also starring on the Netflix comedy AJ and the Queen. He also hosts Logo's Gay for Play game show. "The filming demands of a daytime talk show do seem pretty grueling, especially if it’s producing five new episodes a week," says Harron Walker. "Would this as yet untitled program, should it get picked up, spell the end of RuPaul’s run hosting Drag Race? The show can exist without its titular star, if Drag Race Thailand is anything to go by."
