Ratings: Modern Family Sets a Record as New Shows Falter

Modern Family's recent Emmy win gave the show a boost: The ABC comedy drew its highest rating ever on a night when several new shows failed to get much attention. Family's Season 2 premiere drew 12.6 million viewers and was the night's highest-rated show among adults 18 to 49, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. That demo rating was also a 19 percent improvement over the show's debut last fall. Before Family, ABC's new comedy Better with You drew 8 million viewers and The Middle pulled in 8.8 million viewers. Despite a strong lead-in and a Jennifer Aniston guest spot, Cougar Town (8.3 million viewers) shed much of Family's audience and was down 25 percent from a year ago. The Whole Truth rounded out the night with a disappointing 4.9 million viewers. To Read More Click Here .
