The 25 Whitest TV Shows of All Time

9. Sex and the City

Network: HBO
Air Dates: June 6, 1998-February 22, 2004
Stars: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon

For six seasons and two feature films, Sex and the City had the complete attention of the women who saw a little bit of themselves in Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. The show chronicled the often hilarious moments in the lives of four upwardly mobile women living in New York City. #whitegirlproblems evolve into #whitewomanproblems, which is what Sex and the City was all about. Though fictional, it was treated like a holy scripture, the type of thing that inspired viewing parties, drinking games, and endless brunch conversations.

It remains the affluent thirtysomething white woman's Illmatic, but you'd be hard-pressed to find one woman without at least some knowledge of Sex and the City. It's the show that was forced on an entire gender.
