Homosexual content prominent on primetime TV, study says

From Michael Foust and the Baptist Press.

“When it comes to homosexual characters and themes on primetime television, ABC and the CW lead the pack, a new study says, although all five major broadcast networks have enough such programming to cause Christian families concern.

The study of one year’s worth of programming found that 15 percent of all of ABC’s primetime programming hours during that span contained either homosexual characters or the discussion of homosexuality. The CW was second at 12 percent, followed by CBS (9 percent), NBC (7 percent) and Fox (6 percent).

The first-of-its-kind study was conducted by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). The organization also gave the networks grades: ABC was rated “good,” the CW, CBS and NBC “fair” and Fox “poor.” No network received the highest grade of “excellent.” The study, dubbed the “Network Responsibility Index,” examined programming between June 1, 2006 and May 31, 2007.”
