Fall TV Lineup: Analyzed – Modern Family

Wednesdays are good days for me. Why? It’s Modern Family day! Some people might call it pathetic that one closely correlates the day of the week with the current TV lineup, but what can I say? I like my shows…judge me.

Anyway, the Emmy Award-winning show is definitely a favorite of mine. For me, it’s the diversity of the characters, the constant humor and the general craziness it portrays that is “family.” I also love that every character is independently strong and there isn’t just one star. Needless to say, I hope this one sticks around for many more seasons!

About “Modern Family” — After 11 Emmys and countless belly laughs, it’s obvious we’re not the only ones who fell in love with this hilarious Modern Family.

First, let’s meet the Dunphys. Phil is the enthusiastic, “tries too hard” husband/dad who loves his slightly-uptight (but in a good way) wife, Claire, and their three way different kids. Haley is the independent, eye-rolling teen. Middle sister Alex is wise beyond her years and little brother Luke, well, isn’t.

Claire’s no-nonsense dad, Jay Pritchett, married a much younger Colombian beauty named Gloria Delgado. Her passion for life has rubbed off on her young son Manny, who marches to the beat of his own drum, usually in a burgundy dinner jacket.

Jay’s lawyer son, Mitchell, embraced a major life change when he and his free-spirit partner, Cameron, adopted their super-cute Vietnamese baby, Lily. They’re learning all the parenting ropes as they go. Fortunately, they have the loving support of their extended, eclectic, ever-funny family.
