September 23, 2010 |  6:47 am

Modern Family TV news

Bazookka Joe:  Great premiere!

east/west: Disappointing premiere.

Atypical: That was so good. All of the storylines clicked. Now I want Ty Burrell to win an Emmy more than ever.

FNLFan89: Solid premiere. Burrell and Bowen were good, but their story (which seemed to be the longest) was the least funny of the three stories. Vergara, although not part of the main storyline, absoultely killed in her scenes. ... Glad to have this show back. Grade: B+ -- MVP's: Vergara, Ferguson

Hodag129: This episode was ... average. Funny sure. But it was just a basic "Modern Family" episode. It didn't come out of the gate this season with it's best like Glee did. Still a good show. The whole cast is genuinely funny so they make slow episodes better. Grade: B for all TV. C+/B- by "Modern Family's" higher standards.

Brilliance inmorbid: More funny and less awkward than most of season one's latter half episodes. Still, it was middling, and Burrell was hella annoying.

FishBiscuit: A fair to midlin' season premier. They all can't be classics so for now I'll same I'm happy to have Modern Family back.

adamunc: I would like to thank the show for the close-up of Vergara's chest when she was stirring the salted milk. (I've never heard of salting milk. Is that a real thing?)

Of course, it's absurd to conduct this poll so early, but let's do it anyway.

'Modern Family' returns – to claim another Emmy?

September 22, 2010 |  7:44 am

Modern family dvdTuesday, the DVD of "Modern Family's" first TV season went on sale. Tonight at 9 Pacific/Eastern, the show's sophomore season debuts with an episode titled "The Old Wagon" in which Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) get misty-eyed with nostalgia when they plan to give up their old Dunphy station wagon.

In our message boards, our posters are hoping the recent Emmy sweep of "Modern Family" (six trophies, include best comedy series, writing and supporting actor for Eric Stonestreet) will give it momentum heading into the next Golden Globes and SAG Awards, where it performed poorly earlier this year.

The Times' Home section has recent features about the homes showcased in the TV show. One reveals that the "Modern Family" home of Phil and Claire  is in Cheviot Hills and has a couch from Sofa U Love. In another, the TV series' production designer, Richard Berg, describes the Dunphy décor as "Pottery Barn-Restoration Hardware traditional modern."

Below, a TV Guide video of the cast performing a table read of an upcoming episode script.
