After last night's hilarious yet touching episode of Modern Family, I thought, "I hope a lot of people are watching this show. Its so well written, is Oprah sanctioned, and has an extremely positive portrayal of men who lay with other men. I'll write about it tomorrow on my blog as I continue with my nefarious plot to push the gay agenda upon on my unsuspecting readers." Curious to see how many people were watching, I pulled up the list of the top 25 shows of last week and I discovered that Modern Family was actually the most popular show on my "must see" viewing list (!!!) so before I give you solid proof that MF is one of the best shows on television; I need to share the list with you. I've always known my tastes weren't mainstream but....

...sweet crap! There are 15 shows in the top 26 of which I've never even seen one entire episode. I see that people absolutely love their crime procedural programming. I always worry that those shows are teaching homicidal whack-jobs how to get away with murder. Three shows that I abandoned, Dancing With the Stars, Survivor, and Desperate Housewives, are all in the top 25. Dancing actually hogs several slots. But I've prattled on long enough about that, now I give you....
Earth shattering proof that Modern Family is essential viewing:
Here is the cast of Modern Family. There is no one here that I'd like to blow.
|While I get Ed Bundy, Lex (the person who recommended MF to me) gets to ogle the hilarious Sofia Vergara. A woman so stacked Lex said he would take her over Kim Kardashian.|
Bonus Non-Blowable Blogging: Louie
Watch the 30 second preview of one of my favorite shows, the hilarious yet very depressing, Louie, where the busted beyond belief Louie is confronted by a bully. After that clip ends, it just goes from bad to worse for poor Louie. Louie is currently in re-runs on FX, or you can watch the full episode here (mature audiences only!), on the FX web-site.
Good Day and Good Night to one of my favorite comedians, the late, great Greg Giraldo ('choke')
