"It's been TV's best comedy year, after year, after year, after year, after year. We're sold," says the latest promo for "Modern Family."

The folks at "Modern Fam" did take home a Creative Arts Emmy last week for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series. And not that we're undermining the award, it's just sort of like getting your corsage before you go to the dance, still hoping you get the crown for prom queen ... or king.

The latest promotion encourages viewers to "fall in love again" with "Modern Family," and more people may need to for the show to see continued success.

Critics highlighted "Veep" and "Parks and Recreation" as more deserving of the Best Comedy Series title. Last season's "Modern Family" finale ended on a ratings low. And one blogger for TV.com said he'd like to see a Modern Family end date "to release those poor souls from performing the same six miscommunications over and over again."

But if you haven't had it with the show that helped change the landscape of TV sitcom families, "Modern Family's" seventh season kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 23, where no doubt, another lesson in love and laughter is on its way.
