One of most famous drag queens of all time and host of the Emmy-winning competition show, "RuPual's Drag Race", RuPual will not be having a daytime talk show.


The show was going to be called "RuPual" and it had a three-week test run during the summer of 2019 and it aired on FOX networks nationwide.


On the show, he discussed trending topics in pop culture and fashion, along with his co-hosts, Michelle Visage and Ross Matthews who also serve as judges on "Rupual's Drag Race". Also, he would conduct interviews with celebrity guests as well. Some of these celebrities were Ciara, Iggy Azalea and Blac Chyna, just to name a few.

The show was a retooled working of his previous two-season talk show in 1996 that aired on VH1. But on this show, he ditched his dramatic drag looks and appeared in silky suits.

The show was a retooled working of his previous two-season talk show in 1996 that aired on VH1. But on this show, he ditched his dramatic drag looks and appeared in silky suits.

But lately there has been a surge of brand new daytime talk shows this past fall from "The Tamron Hall Show" on ABC to "The Kelly Clarkson Show" on NBC. So the question is, why didn't RuPual's show make the cut for syndicated television?


But, this one little setback will not stop RuPual from appearing on our TV screens. He will continue serving as the host, head judge and mentor on the upcoming 12th season of "Rupual's Drag Race" premiering this year on VH1. He will also be starring in a brand-new Netflix original series called "AJ and the Queen" that is set to premiere on January 10th on the streaming service.


So not everything is lost for our fave, RuPaul. #Gayes, why do you think the RuPaul show didn't get picked up?
