'Modern Family'
Four stars
8 p.m. Wednesday on WLS-Channel 7

This fast-paced mockumentary perfectly captures the experience of parenthood: chaotic and embarrassing. For all involved. The camera bounces from a May-December marriage with Ed O'Neill and Sofia Vergara, a "traditional" family headed by "Ed's" Julie Bowen, and a gay couple who have adopted a baby. Ty Burrell is a standout as a father determined to relate to his kids. When his teenage daughter brings a boy home, he says, "Let me meet this playa." Daaaaaad!
