Critic Reviews for Modern Family Season 9

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Modern Family was always pure feel-good, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but you can only carry on such a mood for so long.

Aug 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Modern Family is great when it comes to humor, but it's at its best when it combines that with true to life experiences and emotions.

Sep 28, 2017 | Rating: 3.8/5 | Full Review…

While other shows have gone to the chopping block, the Emmy-hoarding ABC sitcom continues to stay strong, despite a pretty clear decline in quality.

Audience Reviews for Modern Family: Season 9

  • Jan 23, 2019
    Less funny or clever than the previous seasons, but its great cast its worth to watch.

    We love this show and season 9 was just not even in the same realm. SO sad, it just tanked. Everything seemed forced and the jokes were flat. We fell out of love with the characters as they dive deeper into co-dependance and bad life decisions beyond what is realistic or relatable.

    Very sad & mind-boggling when such outta-place (I also argue creepy) characters like Dylan continue to just stick around and stick around and stick around and ... stick around for some inexplicable reason. Kiiiinda like Glen Bishop in "Mad Men." I know they're not nearly the same. One's obvs. a comedy, and MM a drama. But I mean similar in their inexplicable continuity of casting. WHY?? Dylan sucks, sucks, SUUUUCKS. At the VERY least, he could be good-looking. But like Glen ... is not. Dylan. Sucks.

    This show has lost it's touch.

    I do not see how this show is still on the air. These people are really annoying.

    OMG! What happened! ... Season 9 is so unoriginal. The writers plagiarized from all over, hoping comedy sitcom lovers won't notice! Season 9 Episode 11 - Luke acting on Phil's winking. Isn't this Kastanza from Seinfeld after he caught Jerry's grapefuit juice in his eye. Season 9 Episode 8 - Jay got a restraining order from Terry Bradshaw but was gloating about it because Terry had to sign it (instant autograph). Isn't this Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory's moment, when he got a signed restraining order (and therefore "autograph") from Stan Lee? It's just shameless copying!

    Getting stale and starting to overstay its welcome.

    After eight legendary seasons of comedy, Modern Family is starting to collapse in season nine. It feels as if the show is running out of ideas, considering each episode this season has been ridiculously unfunny. I feel as if the actors in the show are simply becoming tired and that this may need to be Modern Family's final season. It is really quite unfortunate considering how much I used to enjoy watching this show every day. I would really love to see more development of Alex, Haley, and Luke's characters by the end of the season.

    The writing has been really a typical, silly sitcom. The writing used to be really smart, but the first time, my wife and I haven't laughed hard this entire season. I hope it gets better.
