If you have been wondering about the best and worst networks regarding LBGT inclusion, then GLAAD’s report is for you. They have counted all of the hours on prime-time television in order to calculate how often an LBGT character is included and shown on our TV screens. The organization does this annually and yes, there’s a network that scored a zero. A brief summary of the grading:
Good: ABC Family, The CW, ABC, MTV, FOX, Showtime and NBC
Adequate: FX, HBO, CBS, TLC, TNT, USA Network
Failing: TBS, History
They have also shown the percentage of LBGT inclusion and ABC is at the top with 5.4% while NBC is at 1%. It’s a fun report and you might find a show to put on your ‘too see’ list. And yes, there’s still a lot of room for cable and broadcast networks to improve on and how they can make up for ‘quantity’ by providing quality LBGT inclusion in the future.
