If you're a fan of ABC's "Modern Family," you're in good company. Everyone from Fonzie to the First Family has an affinity for this mockumentary-style sitcom.
That's right, "Modern Family" is apparently even must-see TV at the White House.
Although they don't indulge in social networking sites such as Facebook, the President and his clan do enjoy the antics of the Pritchett-Dunphy- Delgado-Tucker family.
According to People, President Obama recently said, "For the girls and me, 'Modern Family,' that's our favorite show." (The President himself also goes for darker fare such as "Boardwalk Empire," but "Modern Family" is what he watches with the family.)
Actor Bryan Cranston is also a big "Modern Family" fan. He told TV Guide , "Not since my days on 'Malcolm in the Middle' have I seen a show that can make you laugh out loud and at the same time resonate on some deeper level. Extremely difficult to do because if the audience smells a "message" in an episode -- game over, show loses. This program has it all: wonderful writing, fantastic actors. Bravo."
"Happy Days" star Henry Winkler also has "Modern Family" on his TV watchlist. The former Fonzie told TV Guide, "It defines what a comedy should be." Aaaaaaay!
In an interview with "Extra" correspondent Mario Lopez, "High School Musical" hunk Zac Efron said, "My favorite TV show is 'Modern Family.'" (Incidentally, he listed "The Social Network" as his favorite movie, and-- like the Obamas-- he's not even on Facebook!)
"The Closer" star Kyra Sedgwick has also expressed her affection for the show. In an interview with Zap2It, Sedgwick said the hit sitcom was "appointment viewing" for her.
"I love 'Modern Family.' I'm totally in love with that show," the actress said.
"Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson revealed that Sedgwick's husband, Kevin Bacon, and Oscar winner Hilary Swank are also fans of the show. But there is one superfan of the show that really caught him off guard.
Ferguson told Digital Spy, "I think the one that kind of floored us the most was Steven Spielberg was really clamoring to talk to us. And once he was discussing the show with us, he was such a fanboy about it - it was almost like talking to a kid! He was asking us questions about this scene and that scene and it got to the point where I was almost like, 'Someone's got to save me from this guy! But wait, this guy's Steven Spielberg - this is amazing'."
"Modern Family" airs on Wednesday nights on ABC.
