While I see Black-ish as a stronger fit than other Modern Family lead-outs, I think that will be a greater factor with the long-term ratings than it will tonight. Still, the promos may appeal to the Modern Family crowd and the reviews are relatively positive, so I see a pretty good rating here. It will also be interesting to see how the first 90 minutes of the lineup fare, coming off a summer of strong repeat ratings and with The Goldbergs installed at 8:30.
