TV Fights: Women and Men in Interpersonal Arguments on Prime-Time Television Dramas.
Brinson, Susan L.
Argumentation and Advocacy, v29 n2 p89-104 Fall 1992
Studies the behaviors of women and men represented in interpersonal arguments in prime-time television dramas. Finds a weak link between actual argument behaviors and those on television, thereby socializing viewers in a manner inconsistent with reality. Suggests that television arguments are guided more by the needs of the medium that a need to be realistic. (SR)
