The 2011-2012 television season is out, and Fox is leading the way with the highest number of LGBT characters of the major networks.
According to GLAAD's recently-released "Where We Are On TV" report, the network has dethroned ABC, which held the top spot for the past six years. The network's LGBT characters include Kurt, Blaine, Brittany and Santana on "Glee," Jeremy and Richard on "Allen Gregory," Angela on "Bones" and Roger on "American Dad."
Overall, the number of LGBT characters on network TV is down this television season. GLAAD estimates that 2.9% of all scripted series regulars on network TV play LGBT characters. That figure is down from 3.9% in 2010 and 3% in 2009.
The number of scripted LGBT series regulars on cable networks is also down from 35 in the 2010-2011 season, to 28 this season.
