Modern Family: Season Six Ratings

22 May 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Modern Family saw a dip in the ratings last season, it's still ABC's top-rated series. There's essentially no chance that it will be cancelled but, will the ratings continue to slide this year? Stay tuned.

Modern Family revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his two adult children. The ensemble cast is Ed O'Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Pierce Wallace.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest. (more…) »

23 Times Phil Dunphy Was the Best Part of 'Modern Family'

19 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) is a well-meaning father, loyal husband, nearly-perfect son, amateur inventor, and all-around amazing guy. His "Phil's-osophies" are almost as legendary as his spectacular puns. When he's not doling out fatherly advice, he's making pop-culture references that send Tumblr into a tailspin. So it's no wonder he's near (or at) the top of every "Modern Family" fan's list of favorite characters.

Here, then, are 23 times Phil Dunphy proved he was the greatest human-being alive. (Yes, I realize he's a fictional character, but pretending he's real brings me joy.) »

‘Modern Family’ Cast Reflects on ‘Reinvigorated’ Season Six, Haley and Andy’s Maybe-Romance

19 May 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After six seasons, when the producers of most TV sitcoms are feeling lucky just to simply still have a place on the schedule for their shows, the biggest question facing “Modern Family” is whether room will need to be made on the mantle for a sixth straight Emmy for outstanding comedy series.

“I feel very good about what we did this season,” co-creator Steven Levitan told Variety Monday at a For Your Consideration event on the 20th Century Fox lot, where fans – and, importantly, Television Academy voters – assembled to watch the sixth-season finale and listen to members of the cast and creative team discuss the most recent crop of episodes, which all agreed felt as fresh and funny as the high-water mark seasons that preceded them.

“I like the fact that we tried new things, and we didn’t want to rest on our laurels,” said Levitan, who saw inventive episodes like “Connection Lost, »

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of Shield' - 'One of Us': Supervillain team-up

17 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I introduce the teams over the Pa system... In its bumpy early days, "Agents of Shield" was a superhero show that seemed unwilling and/or unable to admit that it was a superhero show. The stars of the movies were absent (aside from that goofy cameo where Nick Fury showed up to yell at Coulson about a repair bill), and though the team dealt with alien artifacts and people with powers, it always felt like the show was trying to hold all that stuff at arm's length, as if even the popularity of the Marvel films had somehow not made this stuff mainstream enough. That was a long time ago, though, and "One of Us" was a fun damn episode of a show that takes place in a superhero universe and is no longer the least bit ashamed to admit it, »

The Skeleton Twins DVD Review

16 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Craig Johnson

Starring: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Luke WilsonTy Burrell

Run Time: 93 Minutes

Extras: Gag Reel, Outtakes, Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary with Director/Co-Writer Craig Johnson, “To Whom it May Concern: Making The Skeleton Twins” Featurette, “Sweet Moves” Featurette, Audio Feature Commentary with Director/Co-Writer Craig Johnson, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, Audio Feature Commentary with Director/Co-Writer Craig Johnson, Co-Writer Mark Heyman and Producer/Editor Jennifer Lee

The Skeleton Twins is a down-to-earth real portrayal of two people, in this regard brother and sister, who are trying to find their place in the world with all the combinations of their imperfection and talents. Although this might sound like your usual lo-fi comedy-drama, that would be understating the pure relationship that builds as the story progresses thanks to the wonderful lead cast of Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader.

The pair are estranged twins Maggie (Wiig) and Milo »

Interview: Craig Johnson Co-Writer/Director of The Skeleton Twins

Craig Johnson chats about The Skeleton Twins

Harrison Pierce: Can you talk a little bit about the genesis of this project?

Craig Johnson: I co-wrote it with my buddy, Mark Heyman, while we were still grad students at N.Y.U. [New York University]. Mark actually knew someone who was involved in a student-teacher relationship [and] we thought that was fertile ground for a movie. In the finished version of the movie, that story is more backstory but, in our original drafts, that element was kind of the whole story. But once we gave the “student” character a sister, we started falling in love with this brother-sister relationship and that became the heart of the movie. And that really came from my relationship with my own sister; the way [we] connect is through a dark, macabre, somewhat twisted sense of humor. And we wanted the [characters] connecting through their sense of humor, especially considering that »

‘Modern Family’ Cast On Six Years of Laughs: ‘We Get More and More Excited’

15 March 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For six seasons “Modern Family” has entertained with its unique brand of jokes, slapstick and loving family moments, and the cast and creators gathered at PaleyFest Saturday night to talk about how they keep the show fresh six years in and what keeps “Modern Family” a modern favorite.

The biggest challenge of being in the sixth season, said Ty Burrell, is “not wanting to just do the slotted thing that you’ve worked into over the years. Everybody’s working really hard to ensure that we’re doing new things. Burrell added that he doesn’t believe sitcom characters can truly grow and change, but rather that new situations reveal new sides and layers to the characters.

“I don’t think you guys really want us to grow, because if we did, I wouldn’t fall over things anymore,” he said.

On the criticism of the less-than-perfect and often embarrassing aspects of their characters, »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

10 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After three straight years with four of the six supporting comedy actor slots belonging to "Modern Family," last year finally saw the majority figure cut in half with only Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the cut (and Burrell winning). Ed O'Neill and/or Eric Stonestreet could make a comeback, or maybe the "Family" love will reduce further this time around? That all depends on whether Tony Hale ("Veep"), Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"), Adam Driver ("Girls") and/or Andre Braugher ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") can return from last year, and if Martin Sheen ("Grace and Frankie"), Sam Waterson ("Grace and Frankie"), Laurence Fishburne ("Blackish") and/or Josh Gad ("The Comedians") can squeak in for their shows' first seasons.

Review Round-Up: ‘Contracted’ & ‘The Skeleton Twins’

9 March 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Contracted

Stars: Najarra Townsend, Charley Koontz, Matt Mercer, Alice Macdonald, Katie Stegeman, Caroline Williams | Written and Directed by Eric England

Contracted, originally screened at Frightfest back in 2013, stars Najarra Townsend as Samantha, a young woman who contracts something nasty after being date-raped at a party. Over the course of a few short days, she begins bleeding from pretty much every orifice and quite literally falling to bits. Her already fragile relationships with her friends, colleagues and mother (Caroline Williams) also start to break down as she refuses to seek help and becomes increasingly isolated.

The body horror elements within the film were really well done – that is to say, very icky. Cronenberg fans will be well satisfied with the deterioration of the flesh on display here. The film’s portrayal of an insular and personal crisis is well done. Samantha is on a self-destructive path in addition to the horrifying illness she finds herself with. »

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »
