Any respect I had for that Chinese guy, just flew out the window. Sickening.

I use to love that show when I was a kid. The gay couple, not my thing, but hopefully we don’t have to hear about their “whoopie”…. lol….

Great news!! Hope they will invite more and more gay couples in the future. America is on the right track.

This is a case of when good shows go bad.

That’s great! Equality for all human beings!

To all the idiot comments on here: Grow Up and Get a life. Gay people are not going away on TV as much as you pray for it. If you don’t like it, move to a religious controled country like Saudi Arabia or Iran. See how long you will last there.

I hope we don’t have to hear about the str8 couples whoopie either.

FYI To the Racists: He is Japanese American. If fact he and his family were thrown in the japanese interment (sp) camps back in WWII.

Ah… that’s so cute. I’m setting my Tivo to record it!

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the taping of this episode. It was great!! I’m looking forward to seeing the show when it’s aired. I think most everyone with an open mind will really enjoy it.

Good for them. Pioneers.
