ABC, NBC and Fox now have a higher percentage of blacks in prime time than there is in the general population
At Fox: 21% of characters in lead or supporting roles were black this past fall, a number that notched up again with January 2015's premiere of "Empire," a drama about an African-American family's music dynasty. Other ethnic groups don't do nearly as well. While Latinos are the nation's largest minority group at more than 17% of the population, only Fox and ABC have Latino representation of as much as 10%.
