Modern Family debuted at No. 1 with women among all syndication premieres in more than a decade, distributor Twentieth Television noted today, citing Nielsen’s newly-released stats. The ABC comedy, produced by 20th Century Fox Television, debuted at No. 2 in households among all syndication premieres over the same period, with a 4.1 household rating — behind only The Big Bang Theory‘s fall of 2011 syndication launch (4.5). The numbers reflect the comedy’s launch both in broadcast and cable syndication. Here’s the announcement:
