For all the talk about how Modern Family is a "bad" lead-in, ABC has aired plenty of incompatible shows after Modern Family in the past, and they still haven't had a genuinely disappointing series premiere rating yet. But I'm not giving up hope! I'm just not sold that a large contingent is turning on their TVs for Rebel Wilson. Modern Family will remain big enough (probably coming down a few tenths from last week's 4.2) that it'll keep this show from getting into We Are Men territory. But it's the same kind of weird pairing.
