Archie Panjabi, The Good Wife
CBS will introduce more gay characters on its scripted programs in response to recently receiving a failing grade from GLAAD, CBS President Nina Tassler said Wednesday.
"I'm very disappointed in our track record so far," Tassler said at the Telvision Critics Association fall previews. "We know and we will do better."

They usually go all out when customizing the new digs for the contestants on Big Brother, but CBS really out-did themselves this time around.

The outhouse-style bathroom with barrel sinks gets our vote for most creative, but then again, the leather-and-zipper bedding set in the '80s bedroom definitely comes in at a close second.
Question: As a fan of your column, I know you dislike Big Brother, and I won't try to sway your opinion, but I have to say that I've been disappointed by how CBS has handled recent controversies about their reality shows like BB and Kid Nation. Every year I expect one or two contestants to be irksome and display some repugnant behavior, but as I'm sure you've heard, many contestants this season have been either vapid, racist, sexist, abusive or all of the above. Amber made deplorable comments about Jewish people, but most of us only found out about them because of the controversy that erupted outside of the normal CBS airings of the show.

CBS could have taken the opportunity to show that any kind of bigotry, ...
