MTV (this is a rant)
Every time I see a Finding Carter promo it makes me more and more upset about Faking It. Like come on MTV, Faking It never got that type of promo, they weren’t on my YouTube previews, or random ads on Tumblr. I mean damn we can’t even get a premier date.
I just feel like it’s kind of bullshit. of coarse a LGBTQ+ prominent show gets put into the back burner. Of coarse Faking It isn’t doing that great with viewership and its because you know, the lack of publicity. I mean Teen Wolf numbers have dropped and the plot is inconsistent but let’s keep promoting that. Let’s keep promoting teen mom even though no one watches that anymore, I mean yall had to bring back the same cast again and again just to draw in the numbers yall once had.
faking it is a show that has not 1, but 2 queer main characters, possibly 3 with Karma, we will see, and also has Lauren who is intersex, which has yet to be done on television or discussed before(which is a huge step for television), and yet here we are waiting for some type of news.
This show has so much potential to do some good in the world, to bring awareness in a light hearted comedic way, but still in a serious way when needed. It has potential to break bisexual erasure, to show that even though our world isn’t as accepting as this high school that maybe someday we can get there. This show is possibly our little piece of hope, of a fairytale romance between best friends. But let’s not care too much about the queer kids/teens/young adults, who just want there own piece of representation.
I’m just really upset and need to rant because I really think it’s bullshit. They better be holding off on the premier date for a good reason, and it better not get canceled because they don’t even care to properly promote it like all there other shows.
