From LA Examiner: 'Modern Family', 'Cougar Town', 'Happy Endings' Season Finale Previews; More 'Dexter' Casting; Interview with Newest 'Biggest Loser'


"Modern Family’s season two finale sees big changes, but family still remains"


Modern Family has enough characters that we often see them split off, in their own microcosm of familial units rather than all together at a big event. After all, navigating all of those characters in one place, at one time can be tricky, and coming up with reasons to thrust them upon each other can be even more complicated.

"The latest Biggest Loser, Olivia Ward, credits her trainer for her new life"


Olivia Ward started on her Biggest Loser journey at 261 pounds and with her best friend and sister Hannah right alongside her. Worried that she would never be able to have children at such a weight, and that her opera singer career would be one of typecasting, she set out to make a change and ended up making a mark on her other contestants and the audience in the process...
