As someone who preferred his programs to be a little more "on the edge," Jett developed a show that would eventually become the network’s top premiere program. The Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett became an instant hit on the network. A quick wit combined with a unique interview style quickly made both Jett and the show a success. Each week a different co-host would join Jett. Co-hosts included Charo, Kim Coles, Butch Patrick (The Munsters), and Randy Jones (The Village People).
Jett's regular co-hostess was Jackie Enx. Enx is a transsexual radio personality, who hosted a segment called "Fun with Hypocrisy." Jackie was formerly known as Liam Jason, the drummer for the rock band Rhino Bucket.
A featured co-host was the internationally-famous Sandra Bernhard. Jett and Bernhard hit it off right away, and she signed on to become a regular part of The Queer Edge. The Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett and Sandra Bernhard ran for another 40 episodes, until Q Television folded.
When Q Television began to falter, a new management team was sent in, but the network was never able to recover. As a result, Jett ended up with total ownership of the 145 episodes of The Queer Edge. Those episodes can now be seen in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, Luxembourg, and The Netherlands. The shows can also be seen on TLA Video On Demand, as well as Jett’s own online channel, FUTV in JetTVision, operated in conjunction with World of Wonder.
The Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett and Sandra Bernhard was one of the first chat shows picked up by ManiaTV!.

Famous quotes containing the word queer:
“With my desire to write he seemed in full sympathy, and in urging our early marriage he argued that my first necessity was leisure in which to develop and to master my craft. It appeared to me that with such a man as teacher and guide I could not fail, and it was in a queer mixture of young love and vaulting ambition that I became a wife.”
—Rheta Childe Dorr (18661948)
