The network is launching the new digital shorts under the “ABCd” banner, an initiative that got under way last year as previously reported by Variety. Those, along with the “throwback” series, which include “Betrayal,” “Brothers & Sisters,” “Felicity,” “My So-Called Life,” “School House Rock,” “Sports Night” and “Ugly Betty,” will be available to all viewers on ABC.com and the ABC apps for mobile and connected TV devices without signing in. Other broadcasters, by contrast, have introduced Netflix-style pay services, like NBCUniversal’s Seeso and CBS All Access (while The CW’s CW Seed is also a free, ad-supported service with original series and library content).

Just looking at her, you wouldn’t imagine a wacky sense of humor, no-nonsense business acumen or that she keeps that amazing figure without being a slave to diet and exercise.
What still surprises Vergara about herself, though, is her career.
“I grew up thinking I would be a doctor, and I was in Colombia so women were not into having such a difficult career,” she says. “For me the next best thing, because I love science and chemistry, (was) dental school. Then I started doing TV, which I loved, but it was not something that I thought I would end up doing when I was young.”
Vergara isn’t coy about age. She’s 43, which she casually mentions. It helps, of course, that she is in a great place.
Having just wrapped her sixth season as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on “Modern Family,

After reflecting on the life of his recently deceased plumber coworker, Eugene Gurkin realizes that he wants to get more out of life, and decides to steal from the rich and famous in order to get it. He enlists his plumbing colleague, a cab driver, a security guard, and a waitress to achieve the goal. Together they decide on a target, Mick Jagger, which begins a series of foolishly constructed schemes to break into the rock star’s NYC high rise apartment.
Well, whatever, such is my humble anyway.
As if to specifically mess with me, the show is now forcing me to watch it again, as Donal Logue has been given a recurring role. Fresh off of three of the coolest shows, and roles, you’re going to run into (Copper, Vikings, and Sons of Anarchy), Logue will continue the role as acting commander of the Svu.
The show returns on the 30th, and the Grey’s Anatomy-esque fun continues as Mariska Hargitay‘s character…
Everyone has his or her favorite actor on TV, but what about the more obscure entertainers out there?
Amid the slew of popular TV performers that dominate the headlines lies an undercurrent of cult favorites, made iconic by uber-fans and bloggers — we’re talking the people that inspire beautiful, beautiful fan fiction and subreddits.

The ABC sitcom, which debuted tonight at 9:30/8:30c, is set in a suburban, seemingly sedate gated community where Marty Weaver (The Knights of Prosperity‘s Lenny Venito) and his wife Debbie (Still Standing‘s Jami Gertz) have chosen to live with their two children. But on move-in day, the subdivision’s other residents give off some strange vibes.
For starters, they all dress alike and have professional athletes’ names – such as Larry Bird (Simon Templeman), Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Olagundoye) and Dick Butkus (Ian Patrick). They don’t seem to understand how to use

But it only took a call home to help Vergara make up her mind and decide to keep her busty look. She explains, "My mum was like, 'God is going to punish you if you take your t**s off'."
Sofia Vergara appeared as main cast in the ABC TV series "Hot Properties" in 2005. Two years later, she played another situation comedies in ABC "The Knights of Prosperity". She also appeared on the big screen for several movies such as "Chasing Papi" and "Lords of Dogtown".
The Nine, which ran in the Wednesday 10 p.m. slot, will be replaced by ABC News' new documentary series NASCAR in Primetime, which was originally slated to air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. beginning this week. ABC News' Primetime: The Outsiders will fill the 9 p.m. hour. It is not clear where the unaired episodes of Nine (4) and Knights (2) will be available.
Additionally, sources said ABC is close to a 13-episode order for the midseason comedy Notes From the Underbelly, and CBS is close to bringing back the midseason comedy Rules of Engagement and the sophomore sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine.
Talks are said to continue about ABC possibly picking up eight to nine more episodes of its well-received but low-rated comedy The Knights of Prosperity, featuring Donal Logue and company trying to rob Ray Romano (HR 5/10). Romano appeared at the end of the last aired episode of Knights. He also is featured in the remaining three episodes of the show's first season, which have not aired.
All four newly picked up NBC drama series were given permission to begin staffing last week (HR 5/8).
Bionic, from NBC Universal TV Studio, is a re-imagination of the 1970s series. David Eick, Jason Smilovic and director Michael Dinner exec produced the pilot starring Michelle Ryan, with Glen Morgan joining the series as exec producer.

The Knights of Prosperity debuted on Wednesday, January 3, 2007. The sitcom followed a gang of misfits (the "Knights") who came up with the idea to rob Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger's luxury apartment. The series featured actors Donal Logue, Sofia Vergara, Lenny Venito, Maz Jobrani, Kevin Michael Richardson and Josh Grisetti.
In its debut against the Sugar Bowl, Knights attracted a 4.4 rating (4.8 million households). The next week, up against regular competition, Knights attracted only 3.5 million households. Once American Idol began, the ratings got worse. ABC's schedule move didn't seem to help much (or actually take it out of Idol's path when Idol moved to 8pm). The
The Knights of Prosperity debuted on Wednesday, January 3, 2007 on ABC. The sitcom follows a gang of misfits (the "Knights") who come up with the idea to burgle rock-legend Mick Jagger's luxury apartment. The show was initially going to be called Let's Rob Jeff Goldblum but was changed to Let's Rob Mick Jagger when Goldblum's Raines pilot for NBC was picked up. That titled was changed to Knights of Prosperity, perhaps at the request of Jagger who appeared in the premiere episode. The series features actors Donal Logue, Sofia Vergara, Lenny Venito, Maz Jobrani, Kevin Michael Richardson and Josh Grisetti.
