It’s Manny’s turn to shine tonight on the best new comedy of the season, ‘Modern Family,’ (9pm ET on ABC). Manny takes up fencing, and when it turns out he’s quite good at it, Jay beams with pride, which opens up some childhood wounds for Mitchell. Elsewhere, Phil tries desperately to find what Luke’s talents (if any) are. Consistently funny, smart, well-written and acted, this comedy could just herald the return of the genre to popularity.
