Thankfully, however, developers and executive producers Frank Dungan and Jeff Stein managed to rein things in before the situations really got out of hand.

He meant that 95% of the sitcoms, dramas, ect are either liberal or far left in their content take them off the air and you won't much if any prime time entertainment.

Dumb husbands and fathers and wives who put them in their place. Can you imagine what would happen if the gender roles were reversed?

And this is why I watch ZERO modern television. I honestly don't know how fellow conservatives can sit through any of that garbage without tossing their TV out the windows.

If it's not tuned to a classic channel, my TV is off.

In all fairness, a lot of those cliches haven't really been a thing since the '90s. Sitcoms have become a lot more three-dimensional in the 21st Century, at least the ones not airing on CBS.
