ReceptionEdit

ReviewsEdit

Modern Family's sixth season received positive reviews from television critics, with some claiming it an improvement over the previous couple seasons that had a mixed critical reception, and a return to form for the show.[30]

Various writers from The A.V. Club have awarded the majority of episodes a "B" grade or higher - with particular praise for "The Day We Almost Died", "Closet? You'll Love It!" and "Crying Out Loud"- marking an improvement over the repeated "C" grade given throughout the previous season.[31] "Connection Lost" also received high acclaim, with many praising its originality and ability to transcend what could have been a "gimmicky episode".[32][33][34] Discussing "Three Turkeys", Fourthmic stated that the episode was "another strong one in season that has seen the series return to the quality that we came to appreciate in the first couple of seasons".[30] In her review for "Closet? You'll Love It!" Gwen Ihnat of The A.V. Club stated that the episode represents "all the reasons why we still watch Modern Family" and awarded the episode an A-.[35] On the same site, David Kallison reviewed "Grill, Interrupted" and said "This season proves that sitcoms can survive on solid characters and solid jokes".[36]

Sarah Hyland's performance as Haley Dunphy has received consistently positive reviews over the course of the sixth season. In his review for Queer Eyes, Full Hearts Evan Slead labelled her "truly a great comedic actress. She has a way of making the ditzy and superficial type earn some respect and notoriety".[37] Reviewing Rash Decisions, Gwen Ihnat of The A.V. Club labelled Hyland the 'performer of the week', saying "It’s hard to picture a time when this wouldn’t be Sarah Hyland, but Haley continues to be just a whirlwind of delight".[38]
