Updated: A+ E To Shutter Bio Network, Replace It With Lifestyle-Focused Fyi
A+E Networks is closing the book on its long-running Bio network and replacing it this summer with Fyi, a lifestyle-focused cabler the company said was meant to inspire younger viewers, in its first large-scale maneuver since Nancy Dubuc took over as chief executive of the company in June.

TV on Tap: TV Marathons Jump the Shark and Does “Bunheads” Still have a Chance?

News

A German librarian has written a book on how The Simpsons has changed the way gay people are perceived. I’m always mixed about The Simpsons and its heavy usage of stereotypes, but it hasn’t shied away from repeatedly showing gay people as just part of Springfield’s landscape.

A steel mill has to have the most uncomfortably warm dance floor.

On the other hand, GLAAD is angry with Showtime’s Ray Donovan for its pilot where the Hollywood fixer worked for a star spotted picking up a transgender woman. Despite doing great work with gay, lesbian and bisexual characters, Donovan is part of what GLAAD identifies as part of a bad trend of depicting transgender people as subjects of mockery and disgust. I’m surprised to see House of Lies in the condemnations, my initial impression was that it had a potentially strong transgender storyline with the son.

Morning Brew - Mon. April 8: A lesbian proposes "Glee" style, Karina Hermosillo is a lesbian up for "Our Latin Beauty"

Tags: Morning BrewTabatha CoffeyKarina HermosilloBrenna HardingIMDb

Good morning!

The Fenway Institute found that "lesbians and bisexual women are as likely as heterosexual women to develop cervical cancer, but are much less likely to be regularly screened for it, putting them at greater risk of the potentially deadly disease." Get thee to a gyno!

If you're hemming and hawing over joining lesbian dating site, Buzzfeed gives you reasons to just do it.

Australian teen actress Brenna Harding won Most Popular New Female Talent award at the Logies for her role in Puberty Blues, and she thanked her two moms from the stage.

I especially have to thank two women — my beautiful mothers, Vicki and Jackie, who have been so incredibly supportive, and so wonderful, not just in the last three months of shooting, but in all of my 16 years. Thanks so much, mums.

Two stage moms are better than one.
