From LA Examiner: The 'Modern Family' Expands; Allison Janney Adlibs Her Way Through 'Mr. Sunshine'; "Threat Level Midnight" Finally Premieres...

"Matt Dillion and Shelley Long may just be the new it couple of Modern Family"


Modern Family
is celebrating a birthday tonight! Well, one of the characters is, anyway, and we are just glad to be invited...especially because the rest of the “Princess Party” guest list seems to go off the rails a bit... [MORE]
