I think that it would best here to interrogate the fundamentally ethnocentric grounds on which the question is premised. The ideological construction of the "family" througout history has been shown to be a patriarchal construction created with the sole aim of oppressing women, according to some feminist critics.
Perhaps after interrogating this concept of the family you may like to refer to Theodor Adorno (Frankfurt School) and his seminal work "the Culture Industry", which laid the basis for much of modern marxist critique on the culture commodification. As Rosenblatt (2002) states:
Thus we can begin to see the supreme irony of "television" destroying the "family.
You should conclude by stating that television and the family are both tools of capitalistic society and designed to oppress women and the working classes. Their destruction could never occur as the are essentially problematic terms created in order to perpetuate capitalist society.
Hope this helps!
You could also put something in about people watching TV instead of talking, but this should give your essay some theoretical backbone.
