Airdate: Modern Family: An Aussie Adventure

2014-04-13_2016TEN has set the date for the Australian-filmed episode of Modern Family.

It will screen on Sunday April 27, just days after its US premiere.

While TEN is yet to reveal the timeslot for the episode, it will air on the same night as the Logie Awards, and presumably The Voice launch.

TEN’s screening will include be hosted by Angela Bishop with behind the scenes footage plus interviews with cast and executive producers.

This special episode of the award-winning comedy series follows the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan on an Australian adventure after Phil Dunphy discovers he was conceived here. He takes them all on the trip of a lifetime to destinations including Sydney, the outback and the Great Barrier Reef.

The Modern Family cast are Ed O’Neill (Jay Pritchett), Julie Bowen (Claire Dunphy), Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy), Sofía Vergara (Gloria Delgado-Pritchett), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell Pritchett), Eric Stonestreet (Cameron Tucker), Sarah Hyland (Haley Dunphy), Nolan Gould (Luke Dunphy), Ariel Winter (Alex Dunphy), Rico Rodriguez (Manny Delgado) and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (Lily Tucker-Pritchett).

Sunday April 27 on TEN.


  1. Non ratings or not – people still watch TV, advertisers still advertise on TV. More people watching means more money for the networks.

    Or – is it the case that advertising during non-ratings costs less for the same time / rate per thousand viewers?

    I would think TEN have the most to benefit by airing new Modern Family during non-ratings if only to show people that not all Modern Family eps in their schedule are repeats!

  2. Meanwhile we’re seeing another repeat of Modern family tonight when there are new eps to be shown. Why does channel 10 keep screwing with Modern Family? Last week was a new ep and this week an old ep. Get together 10

  3. Can’t wait for the kangaroo petting scene and the koala cuddling scene. Viewers of the news in Sydney in late February have already seen the Bondi Beach scene.

  4. it will also likely be up against a semi-final of MKR no matter what slot it gets, the semis usually run way overtime, taking up the majority of primetime.

  5. Do we still have such a cultural cringe that foreign tv filmed in Australia needs a special event if it airs here? Or is that just TEN clutching at ratings straws
