One of the other new shows I’m watching is Modern Family. It focuses on three families, actually, although they’re all connected. First, there’s Jay (the glorious Ed O’Neill), his much younger wife Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and her son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez II). Then there’s Jay’s daughter Claire (Julie Bowen), her husband Phil (Ty Burrell) and their three children: Haley (Sarah Hyland), Alex (Ariel Winter), and Luke (Nolan Gould). Finally, there’s Jay’s son Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and his boyfriend Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), who in the first episode, adopt an infant girl from Vietnam.
As the title suggests, it’s about what it means to be a family in this modern age. It’s also just really funny.
Modern Family airs Wednesday nights on ABC at the jampacked hour of 8PM CST/9PM EST. Srsly, networks–move something to Tuesday, wouldja? There’s like, 500 things I want to watch on Wednesdays and Thursdays and absolutely nothing on Tuesdays.
