The hit TV show Modern Family features a gay couple trying to adopt their second child.

If you want more viewers, a racially diverse cast and racially diverse writers might lead to higher ratings. A new study from UCLA's Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies suggests there could be a link between ratings and diversity.

The study revealed that shows with a more ethnically diverse cast attracted more viewers.
