TV losing more 'Will' with every passing year

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images Picture-5-17In their annual analysis of queer representation on network television, the kids over at GLAAD are dismayed to find that there will be only 7 regular LGBT characters on primetime scripted TV this season (down from both the 2006 and 2005 studies):

WHERE WE ARE ON TV: GLAAD’S 12TH ANNUAL STUDY EXAMINES DIVERSITY OF THE 2007-08 PRIMETIME SCRIPTED TELEVISION SEASON [GLAAD]

Though don't fret. We plan to help the networks get their butts in gear by offering suggestions on how they can up the LGBT presence by just making some minor changes:

"How I Met Your Mother (And Convinced Her To Become Your Father)"

"My Name Is Earl, and This is My Partner Steve"

"The LESBionic Woman"

"America's Next Top 'Mo"

"Dancing With The Stars of Torch Song Trilogy"

"Girlfriends (and yes, we mean in that way)"

"Survivor: West Hollywood"

"The HRC Office"

And yet another "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off:

"Izzy Stephens: Sexual Reassignment Surgeon"

We're sure network execs can't wait to hear our ideas!!
