The Top Five Hits of the Fall TV Season
Newsweek calls “Modern Family” : “the funniest new comedy of the season”. Newsweek ranked the top 5 hits of the TV season and here they are:
No. 5: FlashForward (ABC)
No. 4: Modern Family (ABC)
No. 2 (Tie): Cougar Town (ABC) and NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS)
No. 1: The Cleveland Show
Here is their take on “Modern Family”:
Another winner from ABC built on an effective campaign, but this was a much easier sell than FlashForward, simply because it’s the funniest new comedy of the season. The early buzz and reviews for this family mockumentary were almost unanimously enthusiastic. All that was required was to get to viewers to wonder if the show could possibly be as funny as those persnickety critics were saying it was. Fortunately, it is just that funny. And given that the second episode packs more laughs than the pilot (a rarity), Modern Family has room to grow.
