HBO: More LGBTs, Sookies, and Hung dudes than any other net

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 7-183The latest edition of the GLAAD Network Responsibility Index shows that while basic cable networks A&E, SyFy, and TBS are falling behind in in terms of on-screen LGBT representation, premium cabler HBO is leading the inclusive pack:

Of HBO’s 14 original series, 10 included LGBT content and of the four that did not, three were sports news programming.
GLAAD Network Responsibility Index: Primetime Programming 2008 - 2009 [GLAAD]

It's not TV: It's an anti-Prop 8 rally.

In terms of broadcast networks: ABC is heads, shoulders, and pride flags above the rest there, while NBC and CBS both receive failing grades for their lack of positive LGBT portrayals. Our suggestion for the two lagger-behinders: Couric and Williams out, Maddow and Cooper in.

Your thoughts

SyFy series Eureka has one gay character. Vincent the amenably snarky and fastidious chef. And, Colin Ferguson just informed everyone at Comic Con that Eureka is coming back for another season. Plus, there is dreamy John "bisexual Captain Jack" Barrowman on SyFy.
