36. WRT Queer Eye
...I have mixed feelings about it, even while finding the show itself amusing. On the one hand, there is the point Barney Frank brought up about having yet more "pet" homosexuals, different enough from the supposed norm to be safely "other", put on parade to entertain us. On the other hand, it's blatant product placement (what, you thought they were drinking Pepsi out of the bottle because they all love it so?) and shallow entertainment for its own sake--and often fun.

Although we could always use more, there really are quite a few gay people on TV. Of all different stripes. I like diversity in entertainment and politics. Every cause has both in-your-face types and behind-the-scenes types and lots of folks in between. I think that's cool.
