Modern Family has been one of the most popular family sit-coms on television and continues to be now that it is well into season 7. The show is unique because it is set up as a mockumentary featuring one-on-one interviews with characters of the show allowing the viewers to get a really good sense of who each person is and set up some extra laughs. The men of Modern Family definitely steal the show, especially Cam Tucker! Eric Stonestreet is hilarious in his portrayal of Mitchell’s overly sensitive partner, and their dynamic together is spot on.
