PaleyFest 2012 - Modern Family

<p>Ty Burrell of 'Modern Family.'</p>

From PaleyFest:  There’s a reason why "Modern Family" swept the 2011 Emmy Awards (copping the Outstanding Comedy Series statuette for the second year in a row) and won a 2012 Golden Globe and SAG Award: the show is a universal ode to big, messy families and the everyday things that happen to them (and us!). "MF" seemed near-perfect when it premiered in September ’09, but now—with more of a focus on the kids (i.e., 'new Lily' plus a quartet of knowing teens who rival the eighties "Cosby Show" kids)—it reigns supreme. Or as "USA Today" so boldly proclaims, 'Not since "Frasier" has a sitcom offered such an ideal blend of heart and smarts, or proven itself so effortlessly adept at so many comic variations, from subtle wordplay to big-laugh slapstick to everything in between.'

The panelists:

Steven Levitan, Creator/Executive Producer
Christopher Lloyd, Creator/Executive Producer
Julie Bowen, 'Claire Dunphy'
Ed O’Neill, 'Jay Pritchett'
Ty Burrell, 'Phil Dunphy'
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, 'Mitchell Pritchett'
Eric Stonestreet, 'Cameron Tucker'
Sofia Vergara, 'Gloria Delgado-Pritchett'
Sarah Hyland, 'Haley Dunphy'
Ariel Winter, 'Alex Dunphy'
Nolan Gould, 'Luke Dunphy'
Rico Rodriguez, 'Manny Delgado'
