4. The article is frustrating in that it only provides, what, two examples?

Mom and Will and Grace get most of its attention. Roseanne's in a weird place simply because of what it's trying to do.

I would have liked to have seen them tackle Fresh off the Boat as a counterpoint similar to Black-ish while also noting just how hard it is over the years to get anything that's not white as the main focus.

And to actually do more than talk about a couple of primetime big three network shows. Sitcoms are a lot more varied than that across many networks. It's a very narrow focus that gives a very incomplete picture.
