Check It. Modern Family.

This week's "Undeck the Halls" episode of ABC's new hit show "Modern Family" is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. Family webcam chatting with grandpa (Fred Willard) in ugly Christmas sweaters? Yes. If you're not already obsessed with the mid-week treat, tune in tonight to meet the cast, and discover what is sure to soon become a favorite.

Ed O'Neill (perhaps better known as Al Bundy) is better than ever as Jay Pritchett, the thread between each "modern family"--his own (he's re-married to a much younger Columbian beauty named Gloria, played by the hilarious Sofia Vergara), and those of his two children (Claire Dunphy played by Julie Powell and Mitchell Pritchett, played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson). Claire is married to my favorite character in the show, wannabe hip dad Phil Dunphy, played by Ty Burrell. He will make you LOL (he "surfs the web" and texts, so knows these abbreviations, like WTF--why the face?). Burrell has a familiar face from various small-ish roles, but he's making a name for himself here.

Modern Family airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. on ABC.
