While comedy rival “Glee” fell by more than 24% for its third episode of the season, “Modern Family” held fairly steady, easily winning the broadcast race Wednesday night.

This week we have some celeberties that love Modern Family:
Kirstie Alley (from the Washington Examiner):
Alley said she would adore guest roles on “Glee” and “Modern Family” and knows exactly what they should be. On Fox’s show about a high school glee club, Alley could see herself as an acting coach in search of singing talent for a musical. On ABC’s “Modern Family,” she’s itching for a more maternal part.
“I want to play the gay guy’s mom,” she said, referring to the heavyset character of Cameron, partner to Mitchell (actors Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson). “And they’ve got to do it quick, while I’m still plump.”
Alyssa Milano (From PB Pulse):
The top shows on her TiVo.
“I love Modern Family, House, Dexter and I love The United States of Tara.”
Bret Michaels (From Access Hollywood):
“I’ve been spending my time in the hospital watching ‘Modern Family,’” he revealed. “It is the best new comedy out there.”
E! went to the stars of Modern Family and Glee to see if they think their TV shows are doing anything to shape society’s viewpoints of the LGBTQ community, or if it’s purely entertainment.
Here is what Eric said:
“I think [our show] is a great opportunity to educate people. Our goal is to make people laugh, for sure, but while we’re making people laugh, we want to open their minds that two men can raise a baby and give it love, a future and a life. That’s icing on the cake for the show and the role. We just hope people like what we do.”
