Racist & homophobic? Then GLAAD can tell you at which shows to direct your unsavory anger!

Picture 8-54Our buddies over at GLAAD have released their first ever "Network Responsibility Index," a study that not only tracks the presence of LGBT characters on prime time TV, but also breaks them down in terms of race/ethniticity.

So how'd the big five do? Well, ABC leads the pack in terms of overall LGBT representations, while FOX and the CW posted stronger showings in terms of ethnic diversity. However, the true saving grace for all of the networks in terms of both ethnic and sexual orientation variance: The GOP presidential debates tend to air only on cable.
