8 TV Shows Lacking Latino Stars

It was recently reported that HBO's Girls will be introducing its first black "Girl" character. The show has already received a ton of criticism for its lack of diversity, so this had us thinking, will we ever see a Latina "Girl?" And also, what's up with a few other shows that appear to be lacking a Latino presence. Here are 8 TV shows that don't have any Latino stars:

1. lacking slide 01 girls


The HBO hit series, about the experiences of a group of girls in their 20s, is set in New York City. With NYC being one of the biggest melting pots in the country, it seems strange that the girls on the show do not have even one Latino friend.

2. lacking slide 02 How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother

Ted (played by Josh Radnor) has frequently mentioned that his favorite poet is Pablo Neruda, but to date, HIMYM has not featured a recurring or main Latino star.

3. lacking slide 03 New Girl

New Girl

Even though we loved the fact that Chloe Bridges appeared on one episode as a character named Chloe, we're still hoping the show will introduce a sexy Latino as one of Jess' (played by Zooey Deschanel) newest roommates!

4. lacking slide 04 The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory

The CBS comedy, which premiered in 2007, should totally consider casting a smart and poised Latino to join their group of brilliant, nerdy and hilarious physicists.

5. lacking slide 05 Hawaii Five-O

Hawaii Five-0

This remake of the successful Hawaii Five-O, that aired from 1968 to 1980, could use someone like Adam Rodriguez to join their investigation squad.

6. lacking slide 06 Elementary


This Sherlock Holmes series, which is set in New York City, should add on a Latino character to Holmes' crime-solving team. We all know how good our men look in uniform!

7. lacking slide 07 Hot in Cleveland

Hot in Cleveland

While Eddie Cibrian has appeared on the TV Land hit sitcom three times, it would be nice to see him (or another Latino) be a series regular.

8. lacking slide 08 Veep


We love that the HBO comedy is about a female vice president, but how awesome would it be to see a Latina be added to the list of highly important White House staff.
