After a harsh report from the & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s annual survey of gay-friendly programming, CBS has decided to add three gay characters to its programs in the coming television season, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
A gay character will be added to the new comedy "Bleep My Dad Says," the returning half-hour show "Rules of Engagement" and legal drama "The Good Wife," the story says.
As previously reported, the GLAAD report gave CBS a "failing" grade because just 7% of its programming was considered inclusive. "We’re disappointed in our track record so far," said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler at Tuesday’s Television Critic’s Association meeting, where she revealed the additions. "We’re going to do it. We’re not happy with ourselves."
