I don’t really watch TV, but my wife does. One of the things that the quarantine has done is caused me to watch a few of the shows that pass for television nowadays. The shows are the most obvious, Orwellian pieces of propaganda you can imagine.

Every protagonist male is gay.
Half of the protagonist females are gay. The other half all claim to be victims of rape or discrimination.
Every important person (surgeon, CEO, important political figure) is a minority.
The villains are always white males that are portrayed as abusive, rapist, racist misogynists.
Every show has at least one black character who was pulled over by the cops because he was black.

The propaganda is extremely heavy handed.

I just can’t/

IMHO, some of the best TV is being made by the Streaming companies…. but not all.

Netflix: The whole Narcos series, Mind Hunters & Altered Carbon
Amazon series: Bosch, The Man In The High Castle, Good Omens, ZeroZeroZero, The Expanse & Jack Ryan

I think we're seeing effect and not cause with the wokeness on TV.

You can't make the bad-guy anything but a straight white guy without someone crying "(insert)ist!"

Miguel is correct, you have to get off broadcast to find something worth watching.

I haven't bothered looking up broadcast TV in years. I canceled Netflix last year because they got rid of anything old or interesting and replaced it with weird or nasty "Netflix Originals".

And they wonder why their viewership is declining…
