ABC rated gay-friendliest


The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has issued its first ever network ratings on their portrayal of gay, lesbian and transgender individuals, based on programs aired between 6/1/06 and 5/31/07. The criteria included quantity, quality and diversity of the representations. No network received a rating of "excellent," but ABC pulled a "good" with gays represented in 15% of its prime time schedule. Three networks were rated fair: CW (12%), CBS (9%) and NBC, at the low end of "fair" with 7%. Fox, with 6%, was rated "failing."
