Modern Family: Season Four Ratings

ABC TV show Modern Family ratingsLast season, Modern Family’s ratings were even better than the year before. Will they continue to grow or could they possibly fall low enough for it to be cancelled? Nah. Still, it’s fun to track the ratings each week.

The fourth season of Modern Family typically airs Wednesday nights at 9pm on the ABC network. Once again, the cast includes Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Ariel Winter, Sarah Hyland, Rico Rodriguez, and Nolan Gould.

Below are the TV show’s ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Modern Family is going to be cancelled or renewed for a fifth season (not that it seems to be in any real danger).

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
