Clock Ticking On “Family”

Modern-Family-Truth_320I’m starting to lose my patience with “Modern Family,” the endlessly hyped Wednesday-night comedy on ABC. Last night, Judy Greer (pictured right with Ty Burrell) showed up as Phil’s ex-girlfriend, Denise. She wants “a slice of him.” Like all the situations in the show, we’re supposed to find the tonal oddness of the mockumentary acting sufficient to make us laugh, rather than finding any humor in the dialogue (there isn’t any). No thanks.
