Where We Are on TV Report: 2009 - 2010 Season

Welcome to Where We Are On TV, GLAAD's annual report about diversity on television.

At the launch of the 2009-2010 television season, GLAAD estimates that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) scripted characters represent 3% of all scripted series regular characters on the five broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, and NBC. This is slightly more than last year, with 18 series regular characters identified as LGBT.

In contrast, the number of LGBT series regular characters found on scripted programming on mainstream cable networks has decreased even further from last year’s analysis, from 32 to 25. The presence of LGBT-focused cable networks here! and Logo, which program specifically for LGBT viewers, add additional representations. These two networks alone will provide 27 additional series regular LGBT characters, more than all of the other cable networks combined.

GLAAD will continue to work with the broadcast and cable networks to encourage more LGBT representations on television, and to make those representations fair, accurate and more diverse.
