-o-o: Logo's new slate features no LGBT-specific shows

by Jeremy Hooper

- An LGBT-focused version of "The Daily Show."

- An original series set at an American-Family-Association-like organization. But not campy -- gritty. Think "Big Love" or "The Sopranos," but with "values voters."

- A docu-series following a marriage bill every step of the way, giving viewers an insider look into the ups, downs, ins, and outs that go into making the sausage (NY would've been an epic).

- A new version of "SuperMarket Sweep," except this time set in Barneys, hosted by Simon Doonan.

- A reality show tracking the family members who have left the Westboro Baptist Church

- "Broken Road": A road trip series where an LGBT and anti-LGBT relative must take a road trip together, hashing out their differences (and realizing their commonalities) along the way.


Those are just a few series, off the top of my head, that Logo could take on. But most are unlikely to ever happen, because Logo, our much ballyhooed "LGBT network," seems to no longer be in the business of crafting original (much less political) LGBT-centric shows:

I liked the network's launch documentary. Guess I'll always have that to hold onto.
