"Two and a Half Men" will be airing an episode with Charlie Harper's (formerly played by Charlie Sheen) illegitimate daughter.
She's written to be a "sexy and gorgeous" 21-years-old lesbian, according to E! News .
The new character, Jenny, is to appear in the season premiere. The introduction of a gay character may help improve the network's presence in the LGBT community, as only 8 percent of CBS's current programs feature gay people or characters, according to the GLAAD Network Responsibility Index.
CBS is currently in last place among major networks in terms of an LGBT presence.
The network is also experiencing strong criticism for the racial and homophobic remarks by the cast of "Big Brother".
