5 ungay Monday shows that are still pretty gay

Add this share

There aren’t any Atlanta queens on “RuPaul,” and only one of the “Biggest Loser” trainers has come out publicly, but that doesn’t mean negotiating DVR conflicts on Mondays is easy, especially this week. Our boy Jackson Carter (top photo) could be the first openly gay “Biggest Loser” when the Season 12 finale hits NBC live on March 18 under the watchful eyes of mentors and Project Q obsessions Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince. The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queens will invent their own scents – smell her! – on the March 18 episode of the Logo competition, and tweens will squee as Chaz Bono guests on the Season 3 premiere of the gay-inclusive “Secret Life of the American Teenager” on ABC Family. But despite what you heard – and what some in the gay media, including us, may have led you to believe – there’s more to gay life than gays. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. And not that gay sensibilities aren’t still in the mix.

'Bates Motel'

The cool kids are lining up for the “Psycho” prequel over on A&E. A boy forms lifelong issues with his fucked up mother. What’s not to love?

'The Following'

Fans of “24” and “Lost” love a show that won’t allow you to miss an episode. Hot "straight" guys making out, hotties galore, and gasp-inspiring twists have us smelling an On Demand binge watch.

'How I Met Your Mother'

Sure it’s tired, but Neil Patrick Harris still might take his shirt off.

'The Carrie Diaries'

The “Sex and the City” reboot is already securing its gays. Gayby bffs and ‘80s fashion. Get into it.


NBC’s answer to ABC’s “Scandal.” Stick around after “Biggest Loser” to finally see who killed the bitch. Maybe. The lead actor is fierce, and Victor Garber is in it. Soap schlock and you love it.
