What current TV series shows Latinos in the best light? According to a group of Phoenix-based Latino advocacy groups – Chicanos Unidos Arizona, Take Back Aztlán and Nuestros Reconquistos – the answer is Desperate Housewives! “Desperate Housewives portrays Latinos, documented and undocumented, in a very positive way,” says Cecilia Maldonado of Chicanos Unidos Arizona, according to Apparently Carlos Solis, a businessman who went to prison for unethical practices, and Gabrielle Solis, an often self-absorbed former model, are as good as it gets for Latino culture in network television today (their kids seem pleasant, though). Perhaps a better question to ask is what award shows the dearth of Latino culture represented on television.  Family Guy was named the worst show for the Latino image.
