What’s This TV Show About?
A mockumentary-style sitcom airing on the ABC television network, Modern Family stars Ed O’Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, Jeremy Maguire, and Brigitte the French bulldog. The sitcom revolves around three Los Angeles families who are related through Jay Pritchett (O’Neill) and his adult children: Claire Dunphy (Bowen) and Mitchell Pritchett (Ferguson).
In season nine, with Alex (Winter) back at school and Luke (Gould) spreading his wings, Phil (Burrell) and Claire try to navigate their nearly empty nest — although Haley (Hyland) is still living at home. Similarly, Jay, Gloria (Vergara), and little Joe (Maguire) have to get used to Manny (Rodriguez) being at college. Meanwhile, Cameron Tucker (Stonestreet) and Mitchell steel themselves, when Lily heads off to middle school as a newly-minted gifted student.
Season Nine Ratings
Currently, the ninth season of Modern Family is averaging a 1.75 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.14 million viewers. Compared to season eight, that’s down by 17% in the demo and down by 11% in viewership. Learn how Modern Family stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
Always a powerhouse, last season, Modern Family was still ABC’s best rated scripted series in the 18-49 demo and fell just beneath the top-ranked Grey’s Anatomy, in terms of total viewership. Between its strong performance and the fact that the Alphabet Network has already renewed it through season 10, there are no imminent worries it will be cancelled. Still, I plan to keep a hungry eye peeled on the Nielsens. Although co-creators Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are thinking about ending Modern Family next season, nothing is etched in stone. If it keeps earning big ratings, ABC may well make them an offer they can’t refuse. Take the guesswork out of fandom, and subscribe for free updates on any Modern Family cancellation or renewal news.
