The Dunphys of “Modern Family” might not eat at “Bob’s Burgers” — and fans of the shows might not eat at the same restaurants, either.

The two comedies are at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of their average viewers’ median incomes. The median “Modern Family” viewer in the 18-49 demographic rakes in $81,100 annually, according to Nielsen data. “Bob’s Burgers” watchers in the demo, on the other hand, earn around $48,000 per year.

‘Modern Family’ hits season low: Why are ratings slipping?

February 10, 2013 by · 2 Comments
Filed under: ratings 

Earlier this season “Modern Family” was the highest-rated comedy on TV. But CBS’ Thursday king The Big Bang Theory has since climbed to top the weekly chart hitting recent season highs, and Modern Family has slipped to No. 2 and relinquished its crown.

What’s behind the slippage? EW thinks it might be the lead-in show Neighbors , the competition with Fox’s American Idol, and Modern Family’s rather ambitious and creatively complex with a large cast.
What do you think?

Modern Family wins; everyone else dips

‘Modern Family’ won another Wednesday night on an evening where viewership appears to be down across the board. NBC’s new entry in the Law & Order franchise won its slot in both viewers and 18-49.


Wednesday’s top show was ‘Modern Family’. The show did drop from last week’s 5.0, but no one came close to its 4.5 last night. ‘Cougar Town’ could not maintain the momentum: it registered only a 2.9 (down from 3.3) and lost 4 million of its lead-in audience.

‘Criminal Minds’ came in second overall with 14.41 million viewers (up from last week) and a 3.6 (down from last week’s 4.0).

‘Law & Order: SVU’ experienced a slight dip from last week, scoring a 2.7.

A hard night for Modern Family with two reruns; Modern Family should do better with a new episode next week.

On a night with no firstrun scripted programming, CBS did the best at 9 p.m. with “Criminal Minds” (1.8/4, 7.3 million). That bested ABC’s “Modern Family” (1.7/4, 4.5 million) and “The Middle” (1.4/3, 3.5 million), along with an anemic “Gossip Girl” (0.2/1, 0.6 million) on the CW.

At 8 p.m., earlier airings of “Modern Family” (1.2/3, 3.9 million) and “The Middle” (1.4/4, 4.0 million) topped CBS’ “The New Adventures of Old Christine” (1.1/3, 4.4 million) and “Gary Unmarried” (0.9/2, 3.4 million). The CW’s “Life Unexpected” (0.4/1, 1.0 million) also struggled.

Modern Family Ratings

With most of its competition in repeats, Fox’s “Glee” hit a season high last night, dominating what’s become one of the most competitive slots on broadcast.

“Glee” averaged a 3.6 adults 18-49 rating, according to Nielsen overnights, its best rating this season and up 13 percent over its season average of 3.2.

The reason for the bump wasn’t hard to gauge. It was the least competitive Wednesday night in months, with ABC’s “Modern Family” and “Cougar Town” and NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in reruns and CBS preempting usual timeslot winner “Criminal Minds” for a Grammy nominations special.

CBS was first at 8 p.m. with a 3.8 for “Rudolph,” followed by Fox with a 2.3 for “So You Think You Can Dance.” ABC was third with a 1.9 for a “Modern Family” rerun and a new “The Middle” (2.0), NBC fourth with a 1.8 for “Christmas in Rockefeller Center,” Univision fifth with a 1.4 for “El Nombre del Amor” and CW sixth with a 0.4 for a repeat of “Gossip Girl.”

Fox took the lead at 9 p.m. with a 3.6 for “Glee,” while CBS slid to second with a 2.3 for “Grammy Nominations Concert Live!” ABC and NBC tied for third at 2.0, ABC for repeats of “Modern” and “Cougar” and NBC for an “SVU” rerun, with Univision fifth with a 1.7 for “Sortilegio” and CW sixth with a 0.5 for a repeat of “The Vampire Diaries.”
