Why is it that in every group of charachters on television, there has to be the bookworm, the jock, ...?

the smart one, and the idiot? and why is it most groups are 2 girls/ 1 boy... etc. Why do television shows consistently follow this pattern?

Just wondering your opinion on this, I think it gets tired and annoying.

    TV is one big cliche. That's why shows like My So Called Life, and Freaks and Geeks didn't last. The powers that be wanted more fodder for the masses.

    IDK but I agree it is annoying I think it is because they want characters to fit into the most common types of personality stereotypes.
