Send in the clowns on 'Modern Family'

All you have to say is that this will be a "Fizbo-centric" episode, and I'm on board.

Wednesday night's "Modern Family," complete with a clown funeral (taking the famous "Mary Tyler Moore" episode about Chuckles to the next level), did not disappoint in the slightest. There was a cream pie ceremoniously dumped on the ground, along with the casket, and a "clown car" joke.

This is where Cam – this week's MVP, naturally – encountered his former clowning partner, Louis: "We were great together, we spoke each other's language, we finished each other's balloon animals."

Leaping into 'Modern Family'

As usual with "Modern Family," the best laid plans don't always work out, and Wednesday night's episode was no exception.

Phil's fun Leap Day plans were threatened when he realized that all of the women in his family were on the same cycle: "It happened. Satan's trifecta. The day I most dreaded had fallen on the day I most loved."

With Claire, Haley and Alex on edge, Phil was worried he would say or do the wrong thing. Of course, Luke soon gave away the game, and Claire pointed out, "Doesn't he know that tiptoeing around someone like they're crazy, actually makes them crazy?"

Operation: Take Down Lily on 'Modern Family'

Welcome back, "Modern Family" fans!

I was off last week, but thanks to iReporter Kathi Cordsen for posting her thoughts on "Aunt Mommy" (and Claire was definitely last week's MVP).

On to Wednesday night's show, where the co-MVPs were the scheming Manny and Luke. Their plan to take the spotlight-stealing Lily down a few pegs accidentally injured Cam (Phil offered him a "Swedish massage, accent optional"), and broke Lily's doll, instead.

Hey, jealousy on 'Modern Family'

Hey, jealousy on 'Modern Family'

Some of the better "Modern Family" episodes go on a theme. Wednesday night's was obviously jealousy.

First, Phil was jealous of his colleague, Tad, who seemed overly friendly towards Claire. In an interesting twist, however, it was Claire who alerted him to this, as he was oblivious at first. Phil didn't even bat an eye when Tad kissed Claire on the lips.

When the couple went to visit Tad, though, it turned out that he kisses everyone and everything on the mouth, including his dog. Phil drew the line at the fact that Claire liked his jokes, however: "You can kiss my wife, you can take her to bed, but only I can make her laugh... I want to go back."

'Modern Family's' cursing controversy: So how was the show?

Let's get this out of the way, first and foremost, about Wednesday night's episode of "Modern Family": Yes, it involved Cam and Mitchell's adopted daughter Lily saying the "F" word, not once, but several times. Before the episode aired, this upset some people.

As executive producer Steve Levitan explained, "For the record, when shooting, the actress who plays Lily never actually dropped the F-Bomb. After, who knows? She gets cranky when tired."

The young actress, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (though, we're guessing it is not really her) tweeted, "Fudge IS the f-word. Right?"
