Modern Family — one of this season's best new shows

Modern Family on ABC is easily one of the season’s best. The first episode was hands down hilarious. I don’t think there was one single character who didn’t make me laugh (and that includes the children). Basically the show follows the lives of 3 families: a married couple with three children, a gay couple with an adopted daughter, and a May-December couple (see above) with a son from the wife’s previous relationship. Each family has their own issues and struggles that are all relatable and highly hilarious. I suppose it’s possible the subsequent episodes will go downhill, but I don’t think it too likely. If you missed the first episode, it’s definitely worth watching online, not because you won’t understand what’s going on otherwise, but because it’s just that funny.
Final Verdict: Awesomely hilarious show!!!
