Pick up: ‘Modern Family’
Metromix has ranked all the new fall shows and the verdict for Modern Family is “Pick up”. Here is what they have to say about Modern Family:
Premiere ratings: 12.7 million viewers, 8.0/13 overall
Most recent ratings: 9.99 million viewers, 3.8/10 overall
In plain English: “Modern Family” had a surprisingly strong start, and has continued on that track in its following weeks.
None of ABC’s attempts at comedy this fall are going over quite as well as “Modern Family.” The mockumentary-style sitcom about a dysfunctional clan is one Liza Minnelli cameo shy of a well-deserved “Arrested Development” comparison. Cancellation would be a crime.
