MODERN FAMILY First Look: Meet the World’s Luckiest Horse!

On September 21st at 9PM on ABC (CityTV in Canada), North America’s first family of funny will follow in a certain TV blogger’s footsteps (Yes, that’s really me on the right!) by partaking in the adventure of a lifetime. And here with your first look at part one of MODERN FAMILY’s two-part season premiere appropriately titled “Dude Ranch” is More of which can be found after the jump. [Read more…]


Although we’re hesitant to speak ill of the dead, we’d be lying if we came out this morning and flat-out gushed about last night’s UGLY BETTY series finale. Sure, the episode had its highlights, with notable shout-outs going to the way in which Betty and Daniel’s future in London was left up to interpretation and as always, anything that comes out of of the mouth of Willy (“I never thought I’d say this, but you’ve got big balls, Betty Suarez.”) That said, we couldn’t help but feel that in the end, the finale, to borrow a line from Amanda, came off like a bit of a hot mess. Be it a result of the recent string of phenomenal episodes capped off by last week’s beautiful wedding, or the obvious lack of time Silvio Horta and Co. were given by ABC to wrap up half-a-dozen story lines mid-season, Betty’s bon voyage — in an effort to give each and every character their own happily-ever-after — ended up far more convoluted and rushed than one would have liked. So much so that our fingers will remain crossed that the creative team will be given the opportunity to rectify the situation when it comes to the inevitable big screen reunion. Or as Amanda might once again put it: Rumor started here, bitches!

Ryan Seacrest, watch your back. Why? Because while you’ve had a good run as the hardest-working guy in show business, Fred Willard — whose recently appeared in everything from MODERN FAMILY (as Phil’s dad) to THE WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE (as Mr. Stuffleby) — would like nothing better than to steal that title out from under you.

“When I’m not working I say, ‘What’s wrong? What aren’t I getting these jobs!'”, admits Willard. “And then when I get a job, I say, ‘Oh boy, I can’t wait until this is over so I can just sit at home and read the paper!'” jokes the affable star. And yet, as a character actor, he’s had the opportunity to work steadily without becoming that thing no actor wants to be: overexposed. You don’t, as he explains, want people saying, “Are we tired of this guy yet?”

Fortunately for him, that doesn’t seem likely to happen any time soon, especially given his status as one of televisions most dependable go-to guys when it comes to guaranteed laugh-getters. But how did he achieve that rare status? Frankly, by not being overly picky!
