'Modern Family' heads to USA Networks five nights a week

From the press release: USA Network is rolling out the red carpet for "Modern Family" and putting fans front and center.  The network is creating a massive community of "Modern Family" fanatics, dubbed “MOFYs,” offering these cult followers unique opportunities to engage with the series -- on-air, online, socially and on-the-ground -- like never before.  The first four seasons of "Modern Family" will air five nights a week.  The series, produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Picador Productions and Steven Levitan Prods., stars Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez.  Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are creators/executive producers.  Danny Zucker, Dan O’Shannon, Bill Wrubel, Paul Corrigan, Brad Walsh, Abraham Higginbotham and Jeffrey Richman also serve as executive producers.

Starting September 24, fans can delve deeper into the world of "Modern Family" with USA’s sync-to-broadcast experience offered for all 90+ episodes from the first four seasons. Each second-screen event will incorporate native ad integration and include never-before-seen interviews with the show’s writers, trivia and polls. Viewers can access this bonus content during the show in real-time via MODERN FAMILY SYNC at www.modernfamilysync.com or within the USA Anywhere App, as well as inside a number of Social TV apps including, NextGuide, Shazam, Viggle and zeebox.

USA will also be creating weekly themed destination nights. Every Friday will be family night, otherwise known as TGIMF, (Thank Goodness It’s Modern Family), when the entire brood can watch together. And, for all those MOFY aficionados, Sunday nights on USA will be a not-to-be-missed real-time social activation. The network is rolling out "Modern Family Live," where fans can watch, play along on their connected device and see real-time on-air results to polls, fan meters and more. Every week, the top registered players will be featured on-air at the conclusion of the "Modern Family" telecast.

"Modern Family" will also be arriving to a hometown near you this November. USA is bringing an interactive pop-up photo studio to major markets including Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta and St. Louis, which will serve as a destination for uber fans to take show-inspired photos, create animated gifs and cinemagrams – and share them across social media.
