Polyamory in Primetime Again?

Tonight I've seen promos for two of primetime's hottest shows, both on ABC, where lead characters declare "I'm in love with two people."

The first was Teri Hatcher's character, Susan, on Desperate Housewives. That episode airs Sunday 4/29/07 at 9:00 p.m. The second was T.R. Knight's character, George, on Grey's Anatomy in tonight's teaser for next week's show. (Airs next Thursday at 9:00 p.m.) In that case it seems that T.R.'s understandable real life concerns about homophobia on the set have indeed resulted in his leaving the show, which is a shame - in tonight's episode he told Izzy, the woman George loves in addition to his wife, Callie, he's taking a job at another hospital, his way of resolving his conflict over loving two women apparently.

Not too many months ago we saw polyamory and Lovingmore written in as a subplot device on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip on NBC.

More where that came from, hopefully, and assuming they all treat the subject as fairly as NBC did.
