For 10 years, "Modern Family" has opened up a bigger discussion about more distant family.
Also, for a long time, the show has gathered numerous fans who have grown up with the characters on the show and have even by and by related to them.
As the show goes into its eleventh and last season Wednesday night, the cast of one of TV's most-dearest shows opened up to "Great Morning America" and thought about the effect that the show had on their lives and the group of spectators.
"When people actually like something you do, it?s a positive. And when people like it, and it?s actually good ratings, that?s even better. And if it like, has social ramifications, that?s even more exciting," said actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson. "I don?t think any of us were expecting to have the impact that it did."
Since "Modern Family" debuted in 2009, the show has gotten basic praise for structure stories around various kinds of families and handling issues on child rearing, gay marriage and appropriation.
Taking a shot at a show in view of those topics has implied a great deal for the on-screen characters who depicted the show's characters.
Ferguson, who depicts Mitchell Pritchett, a gay dad to embraced kids in the sitcom, stated, "Looking for role models on television, not necessarily finding them, I love that we can be that to kids now. And I think it?s been a talking point for a lot of families about what it means to be gay. And I love the relationship. I?m so proud of it -- the relationship that Eric and I had created."
Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron Tucker, Ferguson's accomplice on the show, said it was significant for him to not give his character's sexuality a chance to be what characterized him.
"Jesse gave me the very sage advice from the beginning," said Stonestreet. "He?s like, 'We're never gonna please everyone, so just take that off your list of worries.'"
With the effect that the show has had on fans the world over, and long stretches of syndication in its future, it's no doubt that "Advanced Family" will keep on having an enduring impact on ages to come.
"It?s really brought families together in an age where kids and teenagers can be so separated from their families because of things like social media and phones and computers," said star Sarah Hyland.
"We all have 10-year-old kids that come up to us and say, 'Are you the guys on Modern Family?? That?s the lasting impact -- these people are coming up to me that weren?t born when I started this job," said Stonestreet. "So I have to assume in 10 years there?s gonna be another 10-year-old. And we?re gonna keep making hopefully generations laugh."
