I recently bought the latest issue of TV Guide because of the cover story on Modern Family. Yep. That's how much of a "Modern fan" I am. Not only that, but the show also made the magazine's special "TV's Top 50 Families of All Time" special article. I don't know what you guys think, but as far as I'm concerned that's quite a high compliment for a freshman TV comedy. Looks like things are definitely looking up for ABC.
There's also mention in the cover article about this upcoming new episode, which looks to be a fun one. When a father-son outing planned by Jay and Mitchell suddenly turns into father-son-stepson bonding time. Bet you can guess what that's all about. Read up on these official spoilers from ABC for episode 18 of Modern Family, "Starry Night" (SPOILERS AHEAD).
