ABC's groundbreaking and multiple Emmy® Award-winning hit comedy series, "Modern Family," takes a modern and often hilarious look at the complications that come with being a family today.

These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us a window into the sometimes warm, sometimes TWISTED embrace of the modern family.
