Modern Family's latest episode, "Mother's Day" was a lot like most episodes of this show and most actual Mother's Day holidays, pretty boring. I do not know if they even got a chuckle out of me. The show has always been known to fall for sitcom cliches, but we had the jackpot tonight. The alleged "tough" Dad crying, a gay couple debating who the man and woman was etc. etc.
The show has really been stagnant lately, but surprisingly it still does pretty good numbers. This is one of the few comedies that has not fallen off in viewership which is surprising as it is one of the few that has fallen off in quality.
