    How has that show stayed on this long? Those people cannot act; especially that woman who talks with an accent…can't understand her. It jumped the shark the first season.

    • tv off

      the fake Charo…she is unwatchable…and they pay her the highest of any woman on tv…you gotta wonder what that's about

      people running the tv biz must all be high and don't care about making good tv

    Modern Family is really bad. I do not remember if it was always bad or just got worst over the past few years.
