Canada's Drag Race start time, channel

Canada's Drag Race is about to start, airing at 8 p.m. ET tonight (Monday, July 27)

R ... U ... missing RuPaul? Then you probably know it's time to watch Canada's Drag Race online and on Logo, starting tonight (July 27). The reality TV series is based RuPaul's Drag Race, and like that hit show, it features a lineup of Canadian drag queens, here to compete for a grand prize of $100,000 and the title of "Canada's First Drag Superstar."

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 5 recently concluded after crowning Shea Couleé the winner. But luckily, Canada's Drag Race is here to continue all the drama, glamour and sass that we know and love from the American flavor. Hope someone brought some poutine and all dressed chips.

Like last year's RuPaul's Drag Race U.K., Logo will air Canada's Drag Race. The LGBTQ-focused cable network first launched RuPaul's Drag Race in 2009 before the show moved to VH1.

Canada's Drag Race is not hosted by RuPaul, though Ru does appear in a video message to the contestants in every episode and narrates the title sequence.

The judges are RuPaul's Drag Race season 11 queen Brooke Lynn Hytes, Canadian actor Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Canadian fashion model Stacey McKenzie. Bell Media personality Traci Melchor will appear as a recurring cast member, with the title "Canada's Squirrel Friend."
