Showtime - Good
69.5 Hours Original Prime-time Programming
22.5 LGBT-Inclusive Hours – 32%
The cancellation of The L Word greatly reduced Showtime’s number of LGBT-inclusive hours, but the addition of shows including Nurse Jackie and The United States of Tara (Keir Gilchrist, pictured) helped soften the blow. Gay characters on the returning series Weeds and Californication help to make the network’s representation solid.
