So, Duh! Pop Quiz… TV Show Diversity Edition

As Seen On TV

For this edition of the So, Duh! Pop Quiz, I’m going to list shows currently running on TV, and list the ratio of main characters that are “regular white folks” to those that are different (this would include other races, sexual persuasions, and capabilities).  The shows examined are:

    a) Community
    b) Glee
    c) Detroit 1-8-7
    d) 30 Rock
    e) The Office

The ratios are as follows:

  1. 9 to 6
  2. 5 to 5
  3. 15 to 4
  4. 7 to 6
  5. 6 to 5

I hope I didn’t miss anybody; I hope I didn’t misrepresent anybody either.  Good luck!

The answers are after the jump.
