Modern Family: Season Five Ratings

modern family season five ratingsThis family sitcom has been the top scripted series on ABC. Will Modern Family continue to be as popular in season five? Is it already guaranteed a sixth season? We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Modern Family follows three Los Angeles familes who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his adult children. The returning ensemble cast is Ed O’Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    I’ve tried watching this show but I just can’t get through an entire episode. I hate the camera work, it’s very annoying. I also hate that the characters speak directly to the camera. This show gets very offensive at times.

    Modern Family is a disgrace. Its no surprise that this sick world will sit and say how great it is. Zero morals. Junk TV. Brainwash the masses.

    If ABC cancels Modern Family, I will never watch that network again. The show has been consistently funny for the past 5 seasons. There’s so much more to do on that show.

    I hope modern family has more seasons, it’s such a good show!!!! I love it and it’s so funny but I see a lot of people that don’t like modern family anymore so I’m afraid ABC is going to cancel it. I really love the show though so I hope not!

    I hope modern family stays around for many more seasons
    But I don’t trust ABC– they seem to like to cancel favorite shows before its time so I try not to get attached to or watch ABC shows for this reason
    Like flash forward especially
    So it should be renewed and continued but if AbC knows how popular and great the show is — they may be the kiss of death
