RuPaul's Drag Race — hot on the high heels of its best-rated season ever — is leaving Logo, and will premiere and air on VH1 instead, starting March 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Second-run episodes will still appear on Logo, but it's a clear demotion for the struggling is-it-LGBTQ-or-is-it-not? network.

From a press release:

“Coming off RuPaul’s Emmy win and a ratings record-breaking season of All Stars, the fandom around RuPaul’s Drag Race has only continued to swell as we head into season nine,” said Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming & Development at Logo. “Broadcasting the show on VH1 will allow more fans to experience the energy, heart and talent these fierce Queens bring to the stage every week.”  
To celebrate the gag-worthy new season, Logo will exclusively air a Race to the Nines marathon of non-stop episodes beginning on Sunday, March 19, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT leading up to VH1’s season nine premiere on Friday, March 24, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.  Throughout the five-day marathon, viewers will be treated to all-new bonus content including never before seen footage from the cutting room floor and interviews with previous contestants, judges and super fans including Michelle Visage, Bob the Drag Queen, Ginger Minj, Jujubee, Todrick Hall, and Lance Bass who will spill all of the “T” on the new queens.
