As the television networks announced their fall schedules during this week's upfronts, news was pretty mixed for TV's LGBT characters. The good news first: Former "Will & Grace" star Sean Hayes is returning to NBC with a new sitcom bound to touch on gay issues. In "Sean Saves the World," the openly gay Hayes stars as a divorced gay dad raising a teenage daughter (Sami Isler) with the aid of his overbearing mother (Linda Lavin). Judging by the trailer , the show will tread on conventional multi-camera sitcom ground, especially with that pushy laugh track.

A Russian newspaper editor was fined Wednesday for printing a quote indicating that being gay was normal. English translations of the contentious quote differ - Gay Star News went with "My very existence is proof being gay is normal" while the Associated Press uses the clunkier "My existence itself is effectively evidence of homosexuality's normalcy. " Words aside, the quote caused complaints when it was published in a Khabarovsk newspaper in September. The suggestion that gay and straight relationships were equal was enough for editor Alexander Suturin to be punished for violating Russia's ban on "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations.

Whatever else can be said about "Sean Saves the World," the Sean Hayes vehicle which premieres Thursday night on NBC, know that the sitcom doesn't treat sexuality with kid gloves. Take the explanation divorced gay dad Sean (played by out "Will & Grace" vet Hayes) gives his teenage daughter Ellie (Samantha Isler) when she asks -- in a convenient piece of pilot episode exposition -- how she came to be conceived.

HOLLYWOOD - In the last of the major ceremonial awards in Hollywood's run-up to the Oscars, Daniel Day-Lewis was chosen best male actor for his wicked turn as Bill the Butcher in Gangs of New York, and Renee Zellweger was named best female actor as the merry murderess in the musical Chicago on Sunday night at the ninth annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Chicago also took the award for best movie ensemble, and Catherine Zeta-Jones was named best supporting female actor. The remaining movie honor went to Christopher Walken, who received the supporting male actor prize for his emotional turn as the down-on-his-luck father of a teen-age con artist in the caper film Catch Me If You Can. Although competition this year is strong, with its additional awards Chicago would appear to be the film to beat at the Academy Awards.

You can't help but feel sorry for Steven Kovacs (Matthew Broderick), the unfortunate architect who becomes the target of The Cable Guy (10:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m., TBS). The cable guy (Jim Carrey) does Kovacs a favor, giving him free premium cable. In return, he asks only that Kovacs hang out with him. Some "only." At first, the cable guy is just overbearing, calling all the time, giving his new friend presents, showing up uninvited. But then he becomes dangerously "helpful," helping Kovacs win back his girlfriend by beating up her date.

Baltimore's Barry Levinson is the subject of this month's edition of "The Directors" series premiering tonight on the Encore cable channel. And, while the profile is not an especially informed or balanced look at the man or his body of work, it is entertaining, thanks largely to Robin Williams. Williams, who starred in Levinson's 1987 film "Good Morning, Vietnam," is far from the only star interviewed. The lineup of actors willing to go on camera and talk about working with Levinson includes Dustin Hoffman, Annette Bening, Woody Harrelson, Anne Heche and Paul Reiser.
