GLAAD's annual survey of LGBT-inclusive television released Friday found fewer gay characters on network television than last year.

The group's annual Where We Are On TV report found that the number of regular gay characters in the 2013-2014 broadcast television season has decreased, while the number on cable networks has increased.

Last year's report found 31 regular LGBT characters on scripted shows on network television, the highest percentage (4.4%) ever. But GLAAD reported a 1.1 percent drop (to 3.3%) in the current season.

“Last season was a stellar one when it comes to the sheer number of gay, lesbian and bisexual representations on television, though diversity within those storylines showed room for improvement,” GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz said in an emailed statement releasing the study's findings.

“Though the number of LGBT characters dropped this season, shows like The Fosters, with an interracial female couple raising a family, and characters like Unique on Glee have not only moved the conversation about LGBT people forward, but are also a hit with audiences,” Cruz added.

LGBT depictions on cable networks increased from 35 regular characters last season to 42. HBO has the most LGBT characters with 11.
