Review | Modern Family

AIR DATE: Wednesday 11/18

TV's top-rated new sitcom — centering around the loony Pritchett clan -- is so sharp and nuanced, it's easy to see why stars are clamoring to guest. Tonight, Phil and Claire (comic soulmates Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, respectively) encounter a nutty rocker (Edward Norton!), while Elizabeth Banks slays as gay couple Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet)'s wild BFF. Not every gag is fresh, but this cast makes it work. (ABC, 9 P.M.)
