Tv Season Info

The Pritchett clan begin Season 6 in summer bliss. Alex (Ariel Winter) is on a humanitarian trip, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) are returning from their honeymoon and everyone is getting along quite nicely. After Alex returns, however, the mood shifts back to normal and the extended family resumes its usual antics. Gloria (Sofía Vergara) is unhappy after noticing Jay (Ed O'Neill) puts little effort into his appearance, and Cameron isn't ready to leave the honeymoon behind. Other noteworthy stories see the Dunphys temporarily move into a small hotel room while their house gets treated for mold, Phil (Ty Burrell), Luke (Nolan Gould) and Manny (Rico Rodriguez) try to stop a Peeping Tom from spying on Gloria and a near-death experience for the Dunphys and Manny. Also, Alex begins her college search and makes a push to be valedictorian.

Critic Reviews for Modern Family Season 6

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Nothing new, nothing adventurous, but Modern Family, which has won five straight outstanding comedy series Emmy awards, remains a tightly written and funny comedy that appeals to all ages.

Sep 8, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's still reliably and solidly funny, capable of several genuine laughs each week, which is more than most network comedies can say. But equally evident is the fact that the show, while still entertaining, stopped being groundbreaking long ago.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Watching this story play out is comedy heaven, a high point in the series' distinguished history.

Feb 25, 2015 | Full Review…

A couple of awards later and we're back with America's favorite family!

Sep 25, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Still full of incredible performances, and is still occasionally able to pull off some special, ambitious episodes. I can't think of an episode more appropriate for that honor than Modern Family's sixth season entry, "Connection Lost."

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Yes, some of the one-liners can occasionally feel easy or too similar (Gloria doesn't understand the word in English!), but the majority of them are subtle and delivered so expertly that you truly do laugh out loud throughout each episode.

Sep 8, 2015 | Full Review…

What it does, it still does well.

Audience Reviews for Modern Family: Season 6

    Best Modern Family season. Its funny and original. A lot of jokes and humor. Phil goes with his magic tricks and Gloria goes with his accent. Its so funny, I recommend this to everyone..
  • Apr 01, 2018
    Well written, funny, smart.
  • Jul 26, 2017
    It never lost it charm! Hilarious as ever!! It's an example of grew up with a series that made his characters grew up to!

    After six seasons of being on network television, "Modern Family" is still a funny show. That is an achievement in and of itself. It may not be as smartly hilarious as it once was, but more often than not it still succeeds. However, there is one major flaw in the show that is really holding it back at this point: the characters (especially those in the Dunphy clan) need to be allowed to grow. In the early seasons of "Modern Family", what really made the show great was learning about all the different characters and their quirks. What always amazed me about the show was how it was able to do essential the same type of humor for four years without showing a dip in quality whatsoever. I guess that is a compliment towards the writing/acting more than anything. The fifth season, however, was the first campaign I gave less than five stars, and to be honest this one is probably more like 3.5. For pretty much two whole seasons now, the show hasn't allowed some of its younger characters (the ones essential to the show's continued success) to grow into their new roles. For example... -Though the actress playing Alex, Ariel Winter, has turned into an absolute bombshell in real life, the show creators still insist on dressing her down and having her play the super-nerd. That worked for a long time, but there is so much potential just waiting to be explored. -Haley (Sarah Hyland) and Luke (Nolan Gould) are kind of having the same character-writing issues. They still insist on Haley basically being the "dumb pretty one" and Luke being a lame-brain. I have seen a bit of character growth from these characters, but again not as much as I was hoping for. "Modern Family" will always have the wonderful characters of Phil (Ty Burrell), Claire (Julie Bowen), Gloria (Sofia Vergara), Jay (Ed O'Neill), Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) to anchor the show. However, they pretty much "are what they are" at this point, with their characters more succeeding on great dialogue/writing than on potential areas for growth. Thus, what I would really like to see from "Modern Family" in coming season(s) is for the show to take a few more risks with the younger characters in the show. Even if not all of those risks succeed, I think the show would benefit from at least trying. Right now, they are following a very convention sitcom formula (play the jokes until they dry up), but it is starting to show some cracks. I know that the show likely pulls in great numbers for ABC and execs are probably loathe to make any major changes, but if the status quo continues the show is going to steadily erode. Bottom line: Season Six of "Modern Family" is still funny, but it is becoming clear to see that the formula is wearing a bit thin.

    This show was great the first 3 seasons and ever since then it has become stale. Cam and Mitches drama is highly redundant and the jokes just don't stick like they used two
  • Oct 01, 2015
    Still with an unceasing oddball narrative, however the jokes aren't refreshing like were before, making this season far to be good as its predecessors were.

    And here’s where things start to sag. There are some notable chink in the armour here: the Dunphys’ new neighbors, Alex’s inconsistent character development, Mitch and Cam’s back-and-forth, and Jay’s attitude are all signs that the show is struggling. The episodes still have good comedic ideas, but the extra punch I’ve come to expect from Modern Family is lacking.
  • Jun 10, 2015
    Consistently the funniest show on TV.
  • Jun 01, 2015
    It's funny and I really like it...I think as everyone gets older it's getting harder to write for.. I enjoy this tv show but it probably will not be on much longer.
