Seems the Gal Pals don’t have the charm of the Fab Five.

The second episode of Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Girl,” which aired Wednesday night, suffered a ratings plummet by 48 percent. The drop was even steeper among 18- to 49-year-olds, falling 53 percent.

The female-centric “Queer Eye” spinoff was seen by 957,000 total viewers during its Jan. 12 premiere and 497,000 during the second episode.

By comparison, the season premiere of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” pulled in 1.5 million total viewers, and the most recent episode of Bravo’s “Project Runway,” which is the lead-in for “Straight Girl,” was seen by 1 million total viewers.
