On the 18 scripted TV shows that aired on FOX, lesbian/bisexual women account for 3.3% of main/recurring characters (274 total characters, a number much lower than on other networks), and, according to Vox, 10.7% of all deaths. They are still killed at a rate 3 times higher than their appearance rate.
Fox only featured 10 lesbian/bisexual characters this year, and quality does not save the lack of quantity. The representation of queer women on FOX is quantifiably bad in several, tropey ways on all but perhaps Rosewood. Several negative clichés plague the characters across all shows, having depictions ranging from bisexual erasure to the psychotic/evil bisexual/lesbian and unfaithful/promiscuous characters. And while not a writing device in of itself, several of the characters counted are no more than background characters with little to no storylines of their own beyond existing as a plot device.
We looked at primetime scripted TV shows that aired on FOX between June 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016. To qualify, a character had to appear in more than 1 episode.
