Though Modern Family saw a dip in the ratings last season, it’s still ABC‘s top-rated series. There’s essentially no chance that it will be cancelled but, will the ratings continue to slide this year? Stay tuned.
Modern Family revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his two adult children. The 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, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Pierce Wallace.
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.

Due to a Nielsen glitch, some of the early ratings of the 2014-15 season were revised a few weeks later.
For comparisons: The fifth season of Modern Family averaged a 3.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.91 million total viewers.
Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like the Modern Family TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a seventh season?
I love modern family it should be renewed for many more seasons.
Boring show … not funny and in no way compares to the best comedy of “Frasier” or “Friends” or “IT Crowd” … seriously a huge yawn. I do not get the hype…over rated.
I’m so a Cam!
As someone who mainly likes violent dramatic tv shows, I waited to start this show and started around season 4, after hearing all the hype. I started from season 1 and caught up fast. I like it, its a safe inoffensive comedy that has a lot of heart, and I look forward to new episodes. Luke is the best, Phil grows on you and Mitch is awesome. The rest of the cast are good too.
I love modern family , I watch it every day and it always cheers me up . I hope they will carry on and film a seventh series because I have watched most episodes and I need more !!!
I LOVE Modern Family! Hop there will be a 7th season!
watching the show can make a bad day in to a perfectly good day.
It is so funny and wired, an I love the whole family!
tried watching it first season, just don’t get the hype I think it’s awful
first season was pretty bad
I just noticed the HUGE safety violation in the photo. they have two guys trying to put out a stove grease fire with water. as I said A HUGE NO NO. and the little girl with a watering can.
Jane is right! The only reason I watched the opener was to see how big the baby got. Sorry, but that is NOT enough reason to watch a show. And he wasn’t even IN the show. That family of 5 that is always up for an Emmy or two is the worst thing about that show. How stupid can one family be?
I love watching the two gays guys but this episode was too over the top even for them. The only funny part was Gloria sans the makeup. I may be deleting the series too!
When Modern Family premiered, it was a fresh, sparkly, brand new concept. The 100% authentic characters interacted beautifully with one another to advance the story and make us want to tune in every week. Who could watch an episode without being reminded of a conversation they once had with a quirky relative, or a unexpected conflict that required great effort to resolve? It was all perfect. Sadly, all good things must come to an end. As much as I have loved Modern Family, the end should have come last season. The show has simply grown stale. Forced myself to watch… Read more »
Yeah, MF needs to go. I’m really tired of the one-dimensional, cliched characters. There are no new stories worth hearing. And Rico Rodriguez as Manny is just painful to watch. Pull the plug.
