Fox Drops the ‘American Idol’ Bomb on ‘Modern Family’

Fox has decided to aim a missile directly at heart of ABC’s young comedy hit “Modern Family.”

The network Friday confirmed that it will move new drama “Human Target” from its originally announced 9 p.m. Wednesday time slot to 8 p.m. Wednesdays. Its replacement: The “American Idol” results show, which had been set to air at 8 p.m. Wednesdays.

The shift could make it tougher for “Modern Family” — which is produced by Fox sibling 20th Century Fox TV– to gain momentum in the winter. The same is true for ABC’s “Cougar Town”.

Idol vs. Modern Family – who will win?
Good thing we have a DVR.

Writers Guild Sings Praises of Glee, Modern Family and All the Other Usual Suspects

Smack in the middle of the self-congratulatory lovefest that is awards season, Hollywood’s word-processing set has released its own would-be honorees, announcing the TV nominees for the 2010 Writers Guild of America Awards.
While the usual suspect contenders—Lost, House, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dexter and The Office—all once again scored nominations, the networks that risked taking their programming in some New Directions (yeah, we said it) did not go unrewarded.
ABC’s Modern Family and Fox’s Glee both scored multiple nods in their freshman year, not only as Best New Series but with a pair of nominations for top Comedy Series—which, lest we forget, is no vanity, thanks-for-playing nod.

The winners will be announced Feb. 20.

A Perfect Addition to Modern Family

December 11, 2009 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Episodes 

“Modern Family” got a “Cheers” from TV Guide for an early Christmas present: the spot-on guest casting of Fred Willard as Phil’s father. Though he was only (mostly half-)seen on a computer screen as he admired via video-conferencing the corny Christmas sweaters he’d sent as gifts, Willard fit right in with Family’s heartwarmingly oddball tone. He’s played endearing dorks in everything from the groundbreaking talk-show spoof Fernwood 2-Night to the pet satire Best in Show. It doens’t take a DNA test to figure out he’s the comic forefather of his super-dufus TV son, Ty Burrell (who also costarred with Willard in the short-lived Fox sitcom Back to You). We just hope Phil’s dad comes for a visit—maybe in time for Feburary sweeps?

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.”

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, November 25, 2009.

Airing new episodes on the night before Thanksgiving led to series-low ratings for programs like “Modern Family,” “Cougar Town,” “Eastwick” and “Glee.” The pending holiday had no negative impact on CBS’ “Criminal Minds, though,” which celebrated its 100th episode and helped give CBS easy Wednesday wins in most key measures.

Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.6 rating, beating NBC’s 2.4 rating and the 2.0 rating for FOX in the key demographic. ABC’s 1.7 rating was fourth, with The CW trailing with a 0.4 rating.

Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 11.03 million viewers to go with a 6.7 rating/12 share. NBC was a distant second with a 4.1/7, followed by FOX’s 3.3/6 and the 3.2/6 for ABC. The CW’s 0.8/1 was fifth.

NBC began the night in first with a 4.6/8 for a “The Biggest Loser: Where Are They Now” special, which also won the hour in the key demo with a 2.6 rating. CBS’ “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and “Gary Unmarried” had a 4.1/7 for second, with ABC’s “Modern Family” repeat and a new “The Middle” doing a 3.5/6 for third. FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” results episode was fourth with a 3.0/5. The CW aired the movie “Gracie” and finished fifth.

CBS moved into first at 9 p.m. with an 8.2/14 for “Criminal Minds,” which also won the hour with a 3.1 rating in the key demo. NBC’s “Biggest Loser” special was steady in second. ABC finished third with “Modern Family” and “Cougar Town” plummeting to a 3.7/6 overall and a 2.2 rating in the demo. Also proving the danger of airing new episodes on a holiday eve was “Glee,” which had a 3.5/6 overall and dropped to a 2.5 rating in the demo. The CW’s movie had a 0.8/1.
