    State what you want about their information channel and also their leadership, yet Sunday evening on the Fox program network was about as gay as television gets.

    It started, certainly, with The Simpsons, one of the most gay-friendly shows on TV (though Sunday evening's was just gayish-- it took care of foodies). Likewise on deck was Household Individual-- once again, a tres gay series with a queer little baby that intends to take control of the world and also personalities that break out right into Broadway manufacturing numbers at the decrease of a hat. We're made use of to that.

    Allen Gregory is the brand-new series from Jonah Hillside. The premise of the program is currently inherently queer: 2 gay fathers, visualized, back their pompous little 7-year-old Allen Gregory. There have actually been, in the previous few outings, numerous jokes per episode concerning gay sex between the pompous dad Richard (articulated by French Stewart) as well as his butch, ridiculed companion Jeremy. Yet last evening, not only were the daddies central characters, the plot was everything about an institution dancing where all the pupils in the primary school were expected to ask same-sex companions to the dancing. This is edgy stuff for well-known wire shows, however, for \"family members night\" on a freshman series?! Wow. The episode was not just amusing (I'm currently a massive fan of the series), yet additionally witheringly insightful about understandings of gay individuals. As well as the attempted seduction of Jeremy by Richard (consisting of dropped towel) was amusing.

    That was adhered to by American Papa-- again, well-established with a gay history, from the out pair nearby to the fey unusual Roger that lives in the attic. But Roger finally satisfied a person enchanting ... as well as it ended up the be Ricky Martin. The episode consisted of Ricky as well as Roger kissing on a couch (and they were really going at it). You got ta love that!

    I really hope the ratings for both shows are great, and also they are definitely worth a (below for American Daddy, below for Allen Gregory) see. Delight in!
