Correct answer: Statement B (Sitcoms reinforced traditional roles for men and women).

Explanation:

Sitcom or situational comedy refers to a genre of comedy that involves the same characters in a series of episodes. In the United States, family sitcoms appeared in the early 1950s with the emergence of first soap operas. Some of the most popular TV shows included Seinfeld, Make Room for Daddy, and Father Knows Best.

Sitcoms idealized image of a typical American family, consisting of a working father, a stay-at-home mother, and two children. Such a view was soon considered the norm; the generation of “baby boomers” believed that real American families are similar to the ones portrayed on television.
