NEW YORK, NY – May 13, 2013 – It’s girl power! Gay power! Gray (haired) power! “The Golden Girls” may have aired 25 years ago on NBC, but it finally found its rightful home on Logo!

Weekly categories include: “Miami Showgirls: Best Song & Dance Episodes;” “Serving Boy-Crazy: ‘The Golden Girls’ Hottest Dates;” “Serving Shade: ‘The Golden Girls’ Bitchiest Episodes;” “Cuttin’ Loose: Best ‘The Golden Girls’ High Jinks;” “Serving Slut: Best of Blanche;” “Serving Saucy: Best of Dorothy;” “Serving Ditz: Best of Rose;” “Serving Sass: Best of Sophia;” “Breaking the Law: ‘The Golden Girls’ on the Run” and “Clan-tastic: Best of ‘The Golden Girls’ Family.”
“The Golden Girls” received critical acclaim throughout most of its run and won several awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series twice. It also won three Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. All four stars each received an Emmy Award throughout the series’ run and had multiple nominations. When no one was talking about AIDS, gay marriage, or hunting for dates after a certain age, “The Golden Girls” defied categorization, lambasted stereotype, and surprised America by serving ground-breaking quips from the mouths of anti-babes. TV’s first non-traditional household and family-by-choice delivered kitchen-table gossip, joy, debate, iconic 80s fashion, brutal honesty, and memorable one-liners still relevant today. The inimitable Betty White, Rue McClanahan, Bea Arthur and Estelle Getty prove there’s never a need, no matter what age, to bend to convention. Even in retirement.
