GLAAD survey ranks HBO tops

July 28, 2009|Associated Press

HBO scored highest among 15 networks for its representation of gay characters last season, according to a report released Monday.

In its third annual Network Responsibility Index, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation found that of HBO's 14 original prime-time series, 10 included content reflecting the lives of gay, bisexual and transgender people. That totaled 42% of the network's programming hours, in series such as "True Blood," "Entourage" and "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency."

By contrast, on NBC and CBS only 8% and 5%, respectively, of prime-time hours included them, the report said. ABC got the highest ranking of the five broadcast networks, with 24%.
