Popular TV Shows with Gay (and other non-heteronormative) Characters:
I saw someone comment on an article (I think a Chick-fil-A related one) that said 90% of people are disgusted when they see people of the same sex kiss. So I thought Hm, if that’s the case then why can I think of a dozen POPULAR TV shows with gay characters? (And also, just that statement shows how ignorant this person is about human sexuality. If 10% of people are gay (science) and 90% of people are disgusted by gay people (his idiot logic) then there would be not such thing as allies, and equality laws would never pass and gay friendly TV shows would fail instantly). 
In no particular order:
Pretty Little Liars
Gossip Girl
American Horror Sotry
Mad Men
Skins (British and American)
Greek
Glee
Heroes
Buffy the Vampire Slayer 
Saving Hope
Sandal
Smash
Ringer
Revenge
Being Human
Fairly Legal
Shameless
The Playboy Club
Spartacus
The Big C
Downton Abbey
Lost Girl
Gigantic
Degressi: The Next Generation (also has a transgender character)
Boardwalk Empire
The Vampire Diaries
The Good Wife
Make It or Break It
White Collar
Southland
Sons of Anarchy 
True Blood
Torchwood (the main character originated on Doctor Who)
Brothers and Sisters
Ugly Betty
Weeds
Bones
Grey’s Anatomy 
Commander in Chief 
House
Rescue Me
Entourage 
Battlestar Galactica
Lost
Veronica Mars
One Tree Hill
Nip/Tuck
The O.C.
Everwood
24
Six Feet Under
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
The Sopranos
Dawson’s Creek
Felicity 
ER
90210
EastEnders
The Young and the Restless
All My Children 
One Life to Live
Days of Our Lives
General Hospital 
The Bold and the Beautiful
Modern Family 
Happily Divorced
Arrested Development 
Will & Grace
Sex and the CIty
Spin City
Friends
Roseanne 
Anger Management 
And quite a few others. Note: three of the shows (The New Normal, American Horror Story, and Glee) are produced by Ryan Murphy. 
While the new normal hasn’t aired yet, just the fact that it’s being picked up is awesome. (And commercials for are aired during the Olympics!) Not all of these lasted long, and not all of them have main gay or other queer characters (though many do).
