Viewers of ABC's Modern Family are the most affluent of network television watchers, while Bob's Burgers viewers are at the opposite end of the spectrum. The Wrap analyzed average median income of primetime viewers from Nielsen's data, and determined that the median income for viewers in the 18-49 demographic is $81,100 for Modern Family viewers, while Bob's Burgers viewers earn $48,800.
On the richer end of things, Parks and Recreation draws the second most affluent viewers with a median income of $81,000. Sitcoms The Goldbergs, The Mindy Project, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, The Michael J. Fox Show, Super Fun Night, Trophy Wife, and The Middle all have viewers with a [...]
Longtime Community writer Megan Ganz, who joined Modern Family's writing staff midway through last season, is growing up. Gone are the all-nighters spent staring at the newly-reinstated Dan Harmon’s famed story circles. At her new job, Ganz can clock out at 6pm. She has a social life, side projects, and sleep.

After yesterday's court ruling that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and overturned California's Proposition 8, Modern Family's Cameron and Mitchell may finally have the wedding they deserve. The show's co-creator Christopher Lloyd told Entertainment Weekly that marriage is "something to explore" for the Los Angeles-based couple. "They would be feeling that a door has opened that was closed to them. Wouldn’t it be pretty tempting to think about walking through it?"
It's not the first time that the idea of a wedding between the two has been suggested. Just last month, the ACLU launched a campaign to encourage the show to marry the couple, who have a [...]
Megan Ganz, a longtime Community writer who joined the show in season two and stayed on for the yet-to-air post-Dan Harmon fourth season, announced via a letter to Reddit today that she has left the show to take a new job on Emmy juggernaut Modern Family. Season 4 of Community has already wrapped production, but it's still all being edited together and finished up. Ganz wrote two of Season 4's upcoming 13 episodes, entitled "Paranormal Parentage" and "Advanced Introduction to Finality" (the final episode of the season), and she mentions in her Reddit letter that she still has to return to Community's production offices to oversee editing on that [...]
