It was probably my favorite show this season. Big bang was also really good this season.

Better or worse? Because I watched the first three episode of Modern Family and while some of the characters were good, the writing seemed so cliche and it wasn't worth the time to continue. On the other hand, I think Arrested Development is one of the best shows ever put on TV, so if it picked up later I'd revisit it.

If you are as passionate about AD as most AD fans are, than I don't think any show could ever replace it, but Modern Family (the 4 or so episodes I have seen) has been entertaining, and I like the characters. Watchable but not great imo.

it's gotten more and more funny as the characters continue to develop even in the later episodes

Tina Fey is the best part of that show for me. Its not anything in a particular episode. But ep after ep her quirky cute (god damn I sound gay) sense of humor just makes me wanna bone the shit out of her (not masking my gayness....).

I really didn't like the first season, but it really picked up in the second. I think it only really starts becoming funny once you're used to all the characters' quirks, at which point a lot of the one-liners become hilarious.

It's kind of like Parks and Recreation. The first season was a moderately amusing Office knockoff, but I've lol'ed a lot in the second season.

yeah, totally agree with tsung. 30 rock s1 is pretty bland, but s2 and onward has a lot of really great episodes. parks and rec was awful in s1, but probably the best NBC comedy this past season.
