In an editorial for TV.com, Richard Lawson writes that "Modern Family's kids almost ruin the show," and he doesn't stop there. "To be blunt," he continues, "I just really hate the kids."
While I dislike the Dunphy children myself, I really like the character of Manny. He may not be realistic, but he's very funny, and I have no problems with that.
What do you think? Do you think Modern Family would be a better show if they cut all of the kids out, or do you think they need to be there for the show to work?
