women in television

My husband Matt told me something the other day that really caught my attention. He said he thinks I prefer television shows that have a female lead character over a male. My first reaction was to deny it. I thought it couldn't be true! I am definitely a feminist, but not a sexist. But then I started thinking about it and realized he had a point. I thought of some of my favorite shows and here's how I broke it down:

Male Lead 
The Office
Arrested Development
Brooklyn 99

Mixed Lead
Modern Family

Female Lead
Park and Rec
30 Rock
Ally McBeal
Pretty Little Liars
The Mindy Project
New Girl

So I guess he has somewhat of a point. Maybe I'm a little biased because I can understand their characters better. I have to say, I'm glad that women are becoming the lead in more and more shows. :-)

What types of shows do you watch? Do you prefer a male or female lead?
