Moore, Marvin L.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v26 n1-2 p41-61 Jan 1992
Examines 115 successful television series portraying white and African-American families across 4 decades of U.S. prime-time television for the structure and characteristics of the families. The data show a trend toward more equal presentation of conventional and nonconventional families, few divorced or female single parents, and few minority families. (JB)
