Top Ten Almost-Gay TV Couples

Before Ellen outed herself on national TV, LGBT characters on TV were few and far between. But over the years, there were many TV couples that could've been outed if times had been different (very different), but were instead portrayed as just almost-gay. From shows like The Odd Couple and My Two Dads, to Bosom Buddies and Laverne & Shirley, here's a list of the top 10 almost-gay couples in TV history.

What are the best gay couples on TV? Or minimum, what are some of the famous gay couples on TV? There are a few to choose from, some you may have suspected, others you may not have. Take a look at these 10 examples and you may be surprised who is on this list.

    The Odd Couple: Felix and Oscar. 1970 to 1975 on ABC. It starred Tony Randall as Felix Unger and Jack Klugman as Oscar Madison.

    Here are the facts: Felix and Oscar are two divorced men. Felix is a neat freak while Oscar is sloppy and casual. They share the same apartment. Their different lifestyles inevitably lead to some conflicts and canned laughs...and they are the gayest couple you will ever see on TV.

    Frankly, it's shocking that by the 70s the notion of two men one prissy as hell, one with failed heterosexual relationships, living together in a Manhattan apartment didn't ring any queer bells at the network.

    I mean doesn't get any gayer than this folks.
