‘Modern Family’ Episode Guide (Sept. 27): The Family Goes on a Houseboat Vacation

“Lake Life” Season 9 Premiere (09/27/17) – In the season premiere, Jay forces the family to take their family vacation on a houseboat on a lake in an effort to create memories that will last long after he’s gone.

Meanwhile, Mitchell runs into an old flame that opens some old wounds; Cam has to stay out of the sun at all costs; Phil and Claire try out some adventureous excursions; and the kids’ quest for a good time may not be as fun as they expected.

“Modern Family” premieres WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 (9:00-9:31 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode is Kyle Bornheimer as Scotty and Joe Mande as Ben.

“Lake Life” was written by Elaine Ko and directed by Jim Bagdonas.

The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family with Jay Pritchett sitting at the head. By his side is his vivacious, younger second wife, Gloria, and together they are navigating life with their youngest son, Joe, and Gloria’s son, Manny, who is heading off to college to explore the world on his own terms.

Meanwhile, Jay’s grown daughter, Claire, and her husband, Phil, are learning to navigate life as empty-nesters with the youngest, Luke, now out of high school and looking to his next move; middle daughter Alex is learning how to balance academia and a social life, and eldest Haley is still living at home as she pursues a career and love.

Then there’s Claire’s brother and Jay’s grown son, Mitchell, and his husband, Cameron, who are about to enter the dreaded middle-school years with their newly discovered, gifted daughter, Lily. These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.

“Modern Family” stars Ed O’Neill as Jay Pritchett, Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy, Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy, Sofia Vergara as Gloria Pritchett, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett, Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker, Sarah Hyland as Haley Dunphy, Nolan Gould as Luke Dunphy, Ariel Winter as Alex Dunphy, Rico Rodriguez as Manny Delgado, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons as Lily Tucker-Pritchett and Jeremy Maguire as Joe Pritchett.
