|Golden Globes: 'Modern Family' wins for TV comedy |
Los Angeles Times
ABC’s Modern Family won the Golden Globe award for best TV series — comedy or musical. It bested last year’s winner Glee (Fox), and rookies New Girl (Fox), Episodes (Showtime) and Enlightened (HBO).
Although this was the sitcom's first Golden Globe, the show has received numerous Emmys since its 2010 launch. The mockumentary series, largely credited with the comedy comeback on TV, features three households of members of the Pritchett clan. The show, created by TV veterans Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, is such a ratings force, it managed to outperform the much-hyped debut season of Fox’s X Factor.
