Sky1′s critically lauded US sitcom import Modern Family had its best ratings yet yesterday, Thursday 27 May, attracting almost 500,000 viewers.
Modern Family had 460,000 viewers, a 2.2% audience share, from 8pm. This more than doubled Sky1′s average share in the slot over the past three months, the best performing multichannel show yesterday by this comparison.
Sofía, the 37-year-old mother of a teenager, is head-over-heels for handsome one-time film producer Nick Loeb, 34, whom she met at a Golden Globe party in LA in January. “They are so happy and in love,” the friend says of the actress and her new businessman beau. The couple looked cozy while dining with his family and friends in New York on May 19.

Australia’s Ten’s new comedy Modern Family last night held its ratings share after the airing of its second episode, while Nine narrowly won the night with solid results for Top Gear, its evening news and a repeat of Two and a Half Men.
However, Nine’s double episode of Survivor, which included the finale of the show, failed to make the top ten in overall free-to-air TV viewing.
Modern Family was the third most-watched show for the night with 1.548m tuning in – little change from Tuesday’s ratings.
Tuesday’s most-watched shows:
Masterchef Ten 1.644m
Seven News Seven 1.613m
Modern Family Ten 1.548m
This year’s Auction Napa Valley event will host former Disney executive Rich Frank and Connie Frank, owners of Frank Family Vineyards, and Steve McPherson, co-owner of Promise and President of ABC Entertainment. The Modern Family Affair lot includes a walk-on role on ABC’s “Modern Family,” dinner at Mélisse with smoking hot actress Sofia Vergara and lodging at the Beverly Wilshire.
The lot is one of about forty live lots offered at the auction which will be held on June 5 and proceeds benefit local charities in Napa Valley. Eric Stonestreet, who plays the role of Cameron on “Modern Family,” will be on hand at the auction to encourage attendees to bid on the lot.
“Modern Family” (9:00-9:30 p.m.)
Against “Idol” and the start of the NBA Conference Finals Game at 9:00 p.m., ABC’s “Modern Family” first-season finale built sharply on its lead-in (+2.5 million viewers/+68% in AD18-49) to once again finish as the definitive No. 1 scripted show in its time slot in Adults 18-49, pacing 27% ahead of CBS’ “Criminal Minds” (4.2/12 vs. 3.3/9). In fact, the hit ABC comedy qualified as Wednesday’s No. 1 scripted TV program for its 12th consecutive original telecast in the key young adult sales demo. Also worth noting, for the 2nd week in a row against “Idol,” “Modern Family” registered as the No. 1 show in its time period with Men 18-34 (2.9/10-tie).
Essentially matching its record-setting young adult number from the prior week, “Modern Family” generated the series’ second-largest audience (10.1 million) since January (slightly behind only last week, best since 1/6/10) and posted its second-highest-ever rating among Adults 18-49 (pacing within one-tenth of a rating point of the prior week’s series-best).
ABC’s “Modern Family” stars Nolan Gould, Ariel Winter and Rico Rodriguez were on Radio Disney where they talked to RD host Ernie D about the season finale of the show, which aired on Wednesday, May 19th.
The Dunphy-Pritchett clan returned from their Hawaiian adventure last night, ready to wrap up the end of an impeccable first season with a family portrait. Not surprisingly, what should be a simple picture becomes a much more complicated ordeal for our favorite borderline-OCD Claire. She attempts to wrangle the whole family together, only to encounter one mishap after the next—the perpetually broken step, Phil’s ill-fitting white pants, a brother afraid of a pigeon, and a husband who kisses her young stepmother. Modern Family went out with a bang but didn’t forget to leave us with some lessons to mull over:
There’s nothing wrong with bringing your own snacks. Sneaking some sodas into your bag into the movie theaters is one thing, but Phil takes it to another level, demonstrating that smuggling treats into a sports event can be an art.

Stonestreet, who called the Facebook group “wasted energy,” also added: “We’re a show that obviously is forward- and progressive-thinking,” the star told us. “To adopt a baby on prime-time television is way more taboo than a kiss, and obviously Mitchell and Cameron are going to experience everything in their relationship. Unfortunately, I’ve been tweeted and sent messages saying that because I’m straight, I don’t get to have an opinion on that, which really disappoints me. I play the character and I think I get to have an opinion on it.”
