More Boy Meets World on ABC Family; Sitcom Modern Family Is #1 Rated Scripted Series in 2010-11

Starting in July 2011, ABC Family will bring you more Boy Meets World! The series airs weekdays in the 7am hour and will air a bit more come July. The '90s comedy starring Ben Savage will gain weekend mornings starting July 2. It will air weekends in the 7am hour as well, but there is some good news and bad news to this. First the bad news is that it could be preempted on any given week by a scheduled movie, but the good news is that some weeks it will air for 3 or even 4 episodes (from 7-9am).
Yes, this isn't too much of a gain but now you can wake up weekend mornings to watch Cory & Topanga. Relive your childhood and wake up on Saturday mornings, even though this isn't a cartoon, it's from the same era. Boy Meets World is replacing That '70s Show o on weekend mornings, but that show will still remain on weekday afternoons. Everything else remains the same as what we previously told you, which includes The Secret Life of the American Teenager getting the weekday 5pm hour starting July 18, replacing Gilmore Girls.

A sitcom finished #1 for the TV season among scripted series! For the complete 2010-11 broadcast season (9/20/10-5/25/11), ABC aired TV's #1 scripted series among the coveted Adults 18-49 with Modern Family based on Nielsen's final rankings for the season. Modern Family soared to a 6.2 average 18-49 rating in the seven-day playback finals, topping the #2 scripted series (Fox's Glee) by six-tenths of a rating point (+11%: 6.2 vs. 5.6).
Among regular live plus same day ratings, which is the same say until 3am, Modern Family averaged a 4.5 18-49 rating, so it went up 1.7 points in seven-day DVR playback from a 4.5 to 6.2. Modern Family was the biggest gainer in time-shifted viewing for the 2010-11 season as well. The series also gained 3.48 million in DVR playback as well, also the biggest gainer for the season.
Catch repeats of the sophomore comedy Modern Family all summer long on ABC Laugh On Wednesday at 9/8 central and I have noticed it is even funnier the second time around. So watch again or watch for the first time!
