Formerly the highest-rated scripted series on ABC, “Modern Family” keeps very strong television ratings thanks to the army of devoted fans. We can observe mere a slight drop of the audience in comparison with the previous season premiere. And, therefore, we estimate the odds of the renewal as like enough. Currently, according to IMDB, “Modern Family” has a score of 8.5 out of 10 based on about 250,000 user votes, somewhere 150 reviews from viewers and over 70 reviews from critics. At the same time, the eighth season of the rockumentary sitcom has an average score of 4.5 out of 5 and a 100% approval rating that indicates a universal acclaim among the viewers.
The premiere of Season 8 has drawn 8.237 million viewers (-12.96% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 2.60 demo rating among adults (18-49). For comparisons, “Modern Family” Season 7 averaged a 2.56 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.92 million total viewers. We regard a figure of 12.96% as an insignificant decrease of the audience. Therefore, our verdict — “Modern Family” will come back for Season 9 on ABC.
“Modern Family” Season 8 picks up when “after recent trips take the Dunphys to New York; Mitch, Cam and Lily to the Midwest; and Jay, Gloria, Manny and Joe to Juarez, Mexico; the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan reunites in its eighth season premiere with all of the families converging at home for Father’s Day,” according to ABC.
