I watch virtually no network shows. I do watch too many "reality" shows on TLC and Bravo. They are very gay-populated.:o
My wife watches those Bravo and TLC reality shows. I do not like that they will keep someone on for weeks after they should be gone if that particular participant helps their ratings. That is why I watch The Contender, in that show, no matter how much the producers favor a fighter, once he climbs into the ring, he is on his own.
One show I will be dropping this season, however, is America's Next Top Model. This is a goofy reality show where girls compete to win a modeling contract. It's funny and bizarre. This season it will feature a transsexual and that's too bizarre for me.
So, no Top Model for me this season.
If it's any consolation, the freak was sent home last night.
I wonder who for GLAAD does the counting, as far as the number of gay characters goes, and how they determine whether a character is gay or not? Does he count Big Gay Al and Mr. Slave? Mr. Smithers and Aunt Patty? All four of the Wiggles? Huckleberry Hound? Uncle Arthur on Bewitched? Also, I wonder how much a job like that pays, because it is probably at least twice what I make.
I don't know who does the counting but they missed one. The Shield (cop show on mainstream cable) has one closet gay character. But they probably didn't count him on purpose.
