ABSTRACT
The article comments on women-themed television shows in the United States, ABC's "How to Get the Guy" and CBS' "Tuesday Night Book Club." "Book Club" reflects a male-centric mentality, describing each woman strictly by her relationship with a man, as in trophy wife, conflicted wife, and loyal wife. In contrast, other dramas like "Desperate Housewives" and "Grey's Anatomy" depict women at work and in their roles as friends, children, even parents.
