TV show description:
The Pritchett, Delgado, and Dunphy clans all agree to be interviewed by a documentary crew but the families have no idea just how much they’re about to reveal about themselves.

Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) will always remember the day that he met Gloria (Sofia Vergara). The stunning woman from Columbia was bartending in a bikini at the pool party that Jay threw for himself on the day that his wife left him. Now that Jay and Gloria are married and he has to work hard to keep up with his much younger, hotter wife and her passionate teenage son, Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez).

Jay’s adult daughter, Claire (Julie Bowen), is having a hard time raising her own family. Her husband, Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell), is a great guy, except for the fact that he thinks he’s “down” with their teenage kids, much to their constant embarrassment. Their three kids are Haley (Sarah Hyland), Alex (Ariel Winter), and Luke (Nolan Gould). Haley is a typical teen, isn’t always the brightest, and dates slacker Dylan (Reid Ewing). Alex is a brainy overachiever who enjoys messing with her siblings. Luke is a rambunctious boy who often gets into trouble when his parents aren’t paying attention.

Jay’s gay son, Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and his enthusiastic and emotional partner, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), have just adopted Lily, a precious little baby girl from Vietnam. While Mitchell is comfortable with his sexuality, his Dad still has a hard time accepting it.

This single-camera comedy offers a ‘mockumentary’ view into the complicated, messy, loving life of three unique and connected families.

I really have a crush on Sarah Hyland, she makes my heart flutter when I see her. Ariel Winter is so cute, she’s a cute young teen at heart. Lots of love for Ariel. Love to see both Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter on a future episode of Sesame Street next year. Sofia Vergara is really hot all over the globe. Love to see Sofia in a Diet Pepsi commercial remake from 1987 when Sofia gets so mad when she sees no Diet Pepsi in her refrigerator, jumps out of the back window in her apartment into the pouring rain, dodging traffic in a city street, dodging barking dobermans while running her way to a Diet Pepsi machine get the Diet Pepsi from the machine and runs back to her apartment climbing back inside the window and sips the soda at the end of the commercial. I hope her commercial airs on the upcoming Super Bowl in February 2015.

This show sucks – I am amazed that there are so few comments on it. If it’s so popular, why aren’t the fans writing in to praise it? There isn’t one thing I like about this show. Al Bundy is disgusting to watch. Pairing him with that beauty and making like they have a real relationship is repugnant to most women I know. I don’t even know where to begin with this show. It just goes to show how far American Society has slid down if this is so popular. Thank goodness for “The Middle” – That is a brilliant and funny show that deserves to be praised!

I would like to see reruns of Modern Family to air on Lifetime beginning in 2015.

When is “Modern Family”‘s season finale? It’s always up to episode 22.


Jeff May 8, 2010 at 8:35 am

I mean it’s “already” up to episode 22.

@Jeff: There are 24 episodes in the season. I believe it finishes on 5/19.


Bill May 6, 2010 at 8:23 pm

A lot of your information regarding the character’s names are wrong. Claire’s last name is Dunphy not Delgado and Mitchell’s last name is Pritchett.


admin May 7, 2010 at 3:11 am

@Bill: Thanks for pointing that out. The description was written well before the show debuted and was based on limited information. It’s been updated.
