Nielsen has released a report titled “The New Mainstream” that reveals that 28 percent of all shows on prime-time TV have queer characters, more than ever before. One in four scripted shows and one in five reality shows in the 2010/2011 season have gay characters, actors or storylines. Shows that are in on the homo action include Glee, Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy, 90210, House, Dancing with the Stars and Big Brother 12.
