Modern Family actor Ty Burrell appeared on The Daily Show last night, where he and host Jon Stewart — two of the Mets’ most famous fans — got a little off topic. Check out the clip here.
You may recall that several Mets players, including Jon Niese, Zack Wheeler and Dillon Gee, visited the set of Modern Family last year in Los Angeles. David Wright is also a huge fan of the show.

Apparently, Modern Family star Ty Burrell is a big Mets fan. The Hollywood Reporter recently caught up to him and coaxed out gems such as:
On Jason Bay: “Bay is just having a hard time. I relate to that as a performer. When you perform in front of people, you can get into long slumps. Like, I’ve had that happen on stage, where I’ve just given one bad performance after another, because you can’t get out of your head. And he’s having a particularly bad run, and I really feel for the guy, and it’s been really hard to watch.”
On the Mets: “Last year was so painful because there was nothing hopeful about it. We still had all the payroll. It was oh god, this still has to get worse before it gets better. This year to me, even though we’re 25 games back or whatever we are, I feel very hopeful. I feel like [general manager] Sandy Alderson really has this team going in the right direction. They play so hard for [manager] Terry Collins, and they’re still playing hard for him. Their lineup is so depleted.”
It’s worth noting, by the way, that TV buff David Wright ranks Modern Family among his favorite shows of all time.
