Golden Globes: "Modern Family" wins for TV comedy

January 15, 2012 |  7:20 pm

ABC’s “Modern Family” won the Golden Globe award for best TV series — comedy or musical. It bested last year’s winner “Glee” (Fox), and rookies “New Girl” (Fox), “Episodes” (Showtime) and “Enlightened” (HBO).

Although this was the sitcom's first Golden Globe, the show has received numerous Emmys since its 2010 launch. The mockumentary series, largely credited with the comedy comeback on TV, features three households of members of the Pritchett clan. The show, created by TV veterans Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, is such a ratings force, it managed to outperform the much-hyped debut season of Fox’s “X Factor.”

The Golden Globes were held Sunday at the Beverly Hilton.
