Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

Modern Family 9 and 9:30 p.m., Channel 5

The sitcom wasn’t on last week, because of the first presidential debate. So ABC is making up for the week off with two episodes tonight. In the first half-hour, Cam and Mitchell have a tense face-off with the lesbian parents of one of Lily’s schoolmates. And I love it when Cam has a tense face-off. I still fondly recall his experience in the kitchen with Gloria. The second episode has Phil going in for a vasectomy. Pictured (from left): Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Eric Stonestreet.
