    Modern Family's season finale delivered in the ratings, but yet again the show continues to disappoint me. Just a few of the things that irked me tonight:

    - A few weeks ago on ESPN they showed a clip of Manny and Gloria talking with Pau Gasol of the Lakers. I was disappointed this did not make the final cut for the finale as it was actually pretty funny.

    - The payoff to the Phil being attracted to Gloria and actually kissing her was underplayed. They did this on Everybody Loves Raymond where Robert was attracted to his brother's wife, Debra, but they never pulled the trigger on it. Modern Family was wise enough to do so, but they didn't even make a big deal out of it. That's poor writing.

    - And no update on the step? The one good thing about the early episodes of this show was the different situations in which Phil would say, "Gotta fix that step!" To not even let us know if it was fixed was disappointing.
