Season Nine Ratings
The 10th season of Modern Family is averaging a 1.41 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.23 million viewers. Compared to season nine, that’s down by 11% in the demo and down by 8% in viewership. Learn how Modern Family stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
When Modern Family was renewed for both a ninth and 10th season, it seemed like season 10 would be the final installment in this family laugh-fest, particularly once The Middle ended with season nine. Disney is in the process of trying to buy 21st Century Fox, including 20th, the studio from which this series hails, though. Since that changes everything (including which companies will profit from syndication sales), it was not a huge shock to hear the Disney-owned ABC network is in ongoing talks to extended Modern Family for one final send off. After all, it has long been one of its top scripted performers. Since the cast’s deal expires with season 10, it’s going to cost them, but flying blind, I expect ABC will renew Modern Family for season 11, provided the proposed acquisition doesn’t fall apart. One thing is for sure, I don’t expect the ratings to drop so far that Modern Family would be cancelled outright. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings, and the Disney/Fox deal and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Modern Family cancellation or renewal alerts.
