The Middle helped anchor ABC’s Wednesday night comedy lineup for nine seasons. Paired with Modern Family, no other network could compete with the American Broadcasting Company. Seen as a hilarious and honest take raising a family in the middle class, the show garnered critical praise and a sizable audience.

The decision to end The Middle came from the show’s creators. Its ratings were still strong at the time, and they wanted to be able to “go out on top.” The series finale became a sentimental and hilarious love letter to the fans, who will always remember the laughs they shared with the Heck family!
