Sex & Nudity

  • There is some sexual content in the show, but most of it is just humorous references to sex and similar subjects.
  • Two characters are gay and there are double entendre's about that (would fly over young children's heads)
  • Hayley the older daughter of the Dunphy's has briefly had cleavage shown.
  • Gloria wears tight outfits that reveal her cleavage and/or midriff in a lot of episodes.

Violence & Gore

  • All violence, if there is any, is played for laughs and does not result in serious injury to the characters.

Profanity

  • "Bitch", "whore", and "ass", as well as "damn", "hell", and "crap" are said intermittently. A few lesser-known slurs against homosexuals like "cream puff". In one episode, there are few bleeped out uses of "fuck" from a very young girl.
  • Some strong innuendos have been heard a few times but nothing too verbally graphic.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • In some episodes, characters get drunk, including a teenage girl. She does learn a valuable lesson from this experience however.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Modern Family is a great show with lots of humour and quality. Perhaps the only reason why it's not for all audiences though is because it addresses some serious topics such as homosexuality, adoption and sex. That said, each episode usually ends with an important message that many viewers may find very meaningful.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One episode focuses on Claire's fear that her son, Luke is smoking marijuana. It turns out that he isn't and he was just shooting a film and that Claire and Phil were misunderstanding his directions, thinking them to be diverts. In the same episode, it's implied that Haley has smoked marijuana.
