Struggling soap GCB is heading to that great cattle ranch in the sky: ABC has announced it won’t be renewing the Kristin Chenoweth and Leslie Bibb series for a second season. Mark Delkin, who plays gay rancher Blake,  tweeted his dismay: “Wow. I feel stunned & sad. We have had an amazing ride and you, the #GCB fans and #Blicket shippers, have been just incredible. THANK YOU all for your beautiful love and loyalty.” [L.A. Times]

When MTV’s Teen Wolf  returns for its second season on June 3, expect to see gay character Danny (Keahu Kahuanui, at left in photo) get a meaty storyline. “A lot of gay people don’t fit the stereotypes. Danny happens to be a jock and hang out with the captain of the lacrosse team,” Kahuanui tells After Elton. “People are expecting a lot more [in Season 2].”  Maybe Danny will get a love interest in the form of new character Isaac (Daniel Sharman), a withdrawn lacrosse playe with problems at home. Playing Isaac’s Dad? Familiar face John Wesley Shipp (Dawson’s Creek). [Zap 2 It]
