Female Representation in Two And A Half Men

As the name suggests, this programme is mainly centered around men and their lives.

Females are represented as sexy, thin 'barbie dolls'. This stereotypical view of gold-diggers have been transported to situation comdeies and therefore representing real-life.
There is the occasional difference in representation; Berta the housewife. If somone asks a man "what do houewives usually look like?" They will probably reply with, "Hot".

This 'hot' view of housewives has been almost purposefully misconstued by the creators, because they have chosen an overweight, not particularly attractive, although incredibly funny, middle-aged woman.
The picture on the left in Burta, and the one on the right is Candy.
