In case you missed it, cable network E! celebrated the life of Joan Rivers with an all day tribute to the late host with a 90-minute special “Fashion Police: Celebrating Joan” last Friday, September 19th. Following the special was what the network called “Joan Day”, which was an all-day marathon of “Fashion Police”, the show that Rivers was the host of and for our generation, best known for. “Celebrating Joan” and the Fashion Police marathon resulted in E! network’s most-watched and highest-rated Friday in two years, as 1.1 million fans and mourners alike tuned in to celebrate the life of Joan and her success with Fashion Police. Excluding sports, the special turned into the second most talked about cable program of the day.
Known for her outspoken wit and colorful comments on many actor’s fashion choices, “Joan Day” highlighted some of Joan’s best wisecracks from “Fashion Police”, as well as her work covering a few red carpet events, which will never be the same without her. “Fashion Police” will continue to air with coverage on the Golden Globes red carpet January 12, 2015.
