CBS Vows To Add More Gay Characters On Its Shows

CBS Vows To Add More Gay Characters On Its Shows. After receiving a failing grade from the Gays & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, CBS now vows to add more gay characters to its shows. Network president Nina Tassler says they will do better next time. GLAAD has given the eye network a failing mark for two consecutive years for lacking more gay characters on its shows. Because of the disappointing grades, Tassler said they have plans to include more gay representations on the upcoming episodes of their shows.  Tassler said at the Television Critics Association fall previews, as quoted by TVGuide, “I’m very disappointed in our track record so far. We know we will do better.” “Once you come out of your pilot development season disappointed with yourself, you go into the current series season and look for every opportunity we can to improve the numbers we have represented in the cast.” “We’re going to do that, and we’ll continue to focus on that as we go into development season. We’re not happy with ourselves.”   The characters that are expected to be introduced include Alicia’s (Julianna Margulies) gay brother on “The Good Wife,” a new recurring gay character of “S#*! My Dad Says,” and a lesbian surrogate for Jeff and Audrey (Patrick Warburton and Megyn Price) on “Rules of Engagement.” GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios is “hopeful” that the promised new characters will “help build awareness and understanding” of the community among viewers, though he is also wary of the plan, saying “After two years of receiving a ‘failing’ grade and a commitment last year to be more inclusive, we hope that CBS President Nina Tassler makes true on this promise to bring the network more in line with the industry standard.”
