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

Modern Family High Ratings – Again

Filed under: ratings 

“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).

Any scoop on what’s in store for my favorite [MODERN] FAMILY as the season comes to a [tear] end? — Maya

The TV Addict: If this were any other show, we’d tease the fantastic May 19th season ender by revealing that… [cue ominous music]… nothing will ever be the same for America’s funniest family thanks to an unexpected intruder in Mitchell and Cam’s humble abode and a philandering Phil which culminates in a fight between the Dunphey/Pritchett clan that almost teas them apart. But since this isn’t a very special episode of LAW & ORDER, we’ll simply say the intruder is a bird, Phil is just being Phil, and America’s favorite family ends the season exactly how it started, on a high note.

Alohahaha! Modern Family Boss Dishes on Tonight’s Hawaii Episode and Why He’ll Never Do a Spinoff

May 12, 2010 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Crew, Modern Family News 

You’ve been credited in the press with saving the TV comedy genre. Does that bring on a certain amount of pressure?
A little pressure. I did another show with my partner a year or two ago, and they said that one was going to save the sitcom. In full dramatic fashion, we decided to knock the sitcom down a peg first before we saved it. I think we pulled that one off somehow.

Are you planning a Modern Family spinoff, or any other series?
No. I wanna focus on Modern Family right now. I feel so fortunate to be on a show that is somehow working in this day and age that I don’t dare want to jinx it by taking my eye off of it for a minute.

Modern Family’s Ty Burrell Doesn’t Think He’s a DILF

Vanity Fair has an interview with Ty Burrell from Modern Family, here are the hightlights:

Eric Spitznagel: I never got an advance screener of theModern Family Hawaii shows, so if it’s O.K. with you, I’m just gonna assume it follows the same basic plotline of The Brady Bunch Hawaii episode.

Ty Burrell: (Laughs.) Please do. And you’d be entirely correct. It’s a word-for-word reenactment. We’re dressed in full Brady Bunch costumes, and it’s basically a frame-by-frame remake.

So who finds the Tiki idol that causes a curse? Is that your character?

No, no, it’s Jay (played by Ed O’Neill). I don’t think Phil is smart or cunning enough to find any idols.

Are we finally gonna find out what’s up with the smoke monster?

No. (Long pause.) Was that from the Brady Bunch?

Wait, I’m sorry, I’m thinking of Lost.

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I don’t know anything about what’s happening on Lost. I’m really late to the game.

Mike Brady was the ultimate TV dad. How does Phil Dunphy hold up to his legacy?

Ummm. Gosh, I don’t know if I remember Mike Brady well enough to compare the two.

Come on, it’s gotta be somewhere in your muscle memory. How are Phil and Mike Brady similar, and how are they different?

Well… (long pause.) I think Mike Brady probably had more of his wits about him.

He was definitely the most smugly superior of TV patriarchs.

It seemed like Mike Brady was a really in-control, sensible guy. Phil envisions himself as a hipper version of Mike Brady, but he’s probably not even close. He isn’t that sage voice of wisdom that Mike Brady represented to his family. (Long pause.) Am I remembering Mike Brady accurately?

Modern Family, “Travels with Scout”: dude, you should label those sticks

TV Geek Army has a review of “Travels with Scout”. Here are the highlights:
While not an absolute off the handle laughfest, this was one of the most balanced, entertaining, and funny episodes of Modern Family to date. Balanced in the sense that every major cast member got to do something interesting or funny. And to top it all off we had the legendary Fred Willard rejoining the action as Phil’s dad.

More thoughts on “Travels with Scout”:

  • “Hey, what’s the big sweater at a concert – is that a gay thing?” – Jay
  • “Our boyfriends totally rock!” – Haley to Mitchell
  • “This is awkward… Oh, awkward for me.” – Cam, on learning that his position as rock band drummer would not be a permanent one
  • “I can’t believe he took my dog.” – Claire
  • “Yes, that’s what the disabled lesbian shaman who blessed Lily’s room said, too.” – Mitchell, upon hearing Cam talk about what a traditional family they are
