The women of Grey's Anatomy.

Since its inception, television has served as a lens on American society, and in the expansive world of modern TV, today’s heroes and villains have come a long way from their predecessors.

AMERICA IN PRIMETIME presents some of the most compelling shows on television today, as well as those of the past, by focusing on key character archetypes — the man of the house, the independent woman, the misfit and the crusader — that have remained a staple of primetime through the generations, capturing both the continuity of the character and the evolution. Each episode of the series focuses on one of the key archetypes:

Episode 3: “Independent Woman” reveals how women have transformed from model housewives to complex, and sometimes controversial, characters. Interviews include Roseanne Barr (“Roseanne”); Candice Bergen (“Murphy Brown”); Eva Longoria ("Desperate Housewives"), Robert and Michelle King and Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife”); James L. Brooks and Mary Tyler Moore (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show”); and Shonda Rhimes and Sandra Oh (“Grey’s Anatomy”), among others.

UPDATE: The episode will air on October 30, at 8.00-9.00 PM on PBS.
