    I am not really the biggest Modern Family fan (I do think Ty Burrell is the best part of the show however, his Phil Dunphy is always awesome), but seeing that the show won 4 straight Comedy Series wins, and is poised and positioned to win its 5th, tied with Frasier for the most wins in a row, I can’t help but ask is it really deserving? I heard this season wasn’t the best, but then again, I don’t watch the show that much. Will another comedy show like Big Bang Theory, Louie or Veep be the underdog to sweep rug out from under MF’s feet? I don’t know. I thought I’d conduct a poll to see what the general idea is.

    The MF slump is greatly exaggerated — it’s not a consistent curve that trends downwards.

    S1 was the best.
    S2 was a step down.
    S3 was hovering around S2 quality, maybe a bit less.
    S4 rebounded and was the best since the 1st.
    S5 is in S4-range.

    Nothing that has currently aired will beat Modern Family, in my opinion. They are well-positioned to win again this year if they can stick the landing on their gay marriage storyline.

    B99/Veep or Louie, one of those will be the winners, ready to eat my shit if this wins again, not that it is not good, but 3 wins was too much, nevermind a 4th, it is got to stop.

    The only thing that I could see challenging it is a very strong season from Veep. Big Bang and Girls haven’t been as good as it, and I don’t think Louie has enough support. At the moment, I think it will win.

    There needs to be one strong alternative to MF in order for it to lose and so far, there’s hasnt been one. If that continues to August, then MF will win again.

    Could happen, but unlikely IMO. Brooklyn Nine Nine has been having a consistently great season and Veep will likely turn out good.

    Do I think it deserves five Best Comedy Series awards? No. And yes.
    No, because it’s not, in my opinion, the kind of show that deserves such prestige. I was also fine with 3 wins. Much greater comedies never reached such record. Some didn’t even win once. Some weren’t even nominated!
    Yes, because given the competition it has this year, it deserves to win. In previous seasons, I could always find a great rival to Modern Family, but not this year. Parks is great as always, but it isn’t one of their best seasons, and if the Emmys chose to ignore it so many times, why would they look back now? Girls and The Big Bang Theory don’t deserve to win, at least right now. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is great, but I think it might be too soon to honor this show – the Golden Globes are one thing, the Emmys are a different league. Louie, as great as it is, doesn’t look like a Comedy Series winner and I fear the voters will never see it as one. That leaves us with the always amazing Veep, the only one I can see taking down the current champion. But if Veep isn’t good enough, than Modern Family totally deserves it this year – despite not deserving the 5 wins overall.

    Great season they’re having by the way. It’s wonderfully nice to see a show being so good in its fifth year.

    Even in MF’s first season I probably would have given the series win to 30 Rock’s fourth season. That’s how much of a non fan I’ve always been. Modern Family had a good first half to its debut season. Since then it’s been relatively lame with a couple of good episodes here and there. At no point would I have given MF a series win based on the overall spectrum of TV comedy or based on what’s been nominated against it. This year is no different. It’s been a relatively weak year for comedy, but Community, Suburgatory, Getting On and Enlisted have imo been the best non animated comedies so far. As far as shows that will actually be nominated I’d prefer to see B99, The Big Bang Theory or Girls win. All of those shows have been spotty quality wise but are still more inspired than MF. I’m not seeing any difference with MF this season. It seems B99 or Veep might have a chance to succeed it, but it’ll be mostly about whether enough voters feel the need to move on and whether they’ll be enough support behind a singular series.

    Unless Veep really delivers, and it will be hard to top last season, MF is winning this again. There are no strong competitors to topple MF. TBBT had its peak the last two years and that just went nowhere. I can’t imagine them going for B99 or Louie or any other alternative. So ya, MF is winning its 5th Emmy.

    And season wise, I’d rank them –

    1- Season 1
    2- Season 2
    3- Season 5 (16 episodes aired) 
    4- Season 3
    5- Season 4

    4- Season 3
    5- Season 4

    THIS. Even with the ranking of the seasons, I agree. There’s really no clear alternative. That is it.

    The Big Bang Theory, IMHO, will always be seen as a Sheldon show. Yes, it is a ratings juggernaut but Modern Family‘s numbers are not that bad. Louie is too niche. I am a fan of Veep‘s and would be very happy if it wins Series, but the show has to have strong support from other branches for it to prevail. Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn’t popular and great enough to make a huge dent on its maiden season. Right now, I’d say Modern Family is far ahead.

    So to answer the question, yes, it is likely Modern Family will go five for five.

    I hope not. There so many better comedies out there right now.

    This is also how I would rank them. I wouldn’t mind Modern Famiy winning again, if they had not won for Season 3 & 4. I really wish that they would give it to Veep or Brooklyn Nine-Nine instead this year.
