"FRASIER" is my favorite comedy of all time. I believe that they had more openly gay actors, and more gay characters (including guest actors), then any other show I can remember.

If anyone disagrees, name a show that had more gay actors and gay characters.

I meant with GOOD producers and directors and actors. NOT hacks.

Incidentally, the Obamaniac's poll numbers are plunging into the high 30's and NO POTUS has been re-elected once their poll numbers have gotten that low.

I never thought ANY POTUS could be worse than Jimmy Carter, but the Obamaniac is tryin hard to race him to the bottom.

RUN, OBAMMY, RUN !

I just watched an episode of Frasier (GREAT as usual !:)) a half hour ago, and they had a gay couple on it.

I found "Frazier" to be impossible to watch; the stench of kelsey grammer's vanity (not the character's) was overpowering.

until we have a strong male lead who is also gay in a standard drama series--and who actually has on-screen romance and sex like the heteros, it's all tokenism anyway. The couple on "modern family" are still way too nelly to be taken seriously; franklin pangborn died a long time ago.

I thought Kevin and his husband Scotty on Brothers & Sisters came close. While not the "leads", definately main characters who portrayed romance and sex like heteros.

That's because the vast of America is not gay and we are really sick of your perverted agenda being waved in our faces.

Homosexuality is sin
