    Neighbor to which set of Dunphys?

  2. Rich says:

    Dont you think the added person should have been black?

  3. DJR says:

    Why is another recurring character being added? I thought this show was supposed to be about “modern families,” NOT “modern families AND THEIR NEIGHBORS FROM HELL.”

    I love Modern Family and it has never failed in making me laugh, I will be waiting in anticipation to see this new family that will be moving in next door to Phil and Claire. If he truly is going to be the neighbor from hell, I would love to see him go up against Gloria.
