'Modern Family' Is Ending

Modern Family is ending.

Ten whole years?! 

Modern Family is ending? Let's celebrate that!

Varietyreports that the ABC family sitcom, now in its 10th season, has been renewed for an 11th and final season, wrapping next year.

"[Creators Christopher Lloyd and Steve Levitan] have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history," ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke told Variety. "In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won't want to miss."

I know I don't speak for the entire L period, G period, B period, T period, Q period, plus community, but I think it's safe to say that this is a good thing. I mean, Modern Family has been on for 10 years. It's time for it to come to an end!

Yes, the show depicted a gay couple, played by actors Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, raising a daughter in primetime more than half a decade before the Supreme Court ruled that real-life couples like them all across the country have a constitutional right to form such unions. Yes, it proved that a TV series can show a gay couple raising a family and still be super popular and win a bunch of awards, including five consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series. But does that mean Modern Family should continue onward ad finitum, when bees die every day? I think not.

Sometimes things come to an end, and that's OK. I commend ABC for doing the right thing.
