'Modern Family' sneak peek: Phil's plan for jailbreak hits a snag

Phil Dunphy is going to the slammer on this week’s Modern Family. But why he’s in there is not as important of a question as how he’s going to get out.

In this exclusive sneak peek from the episode, Phil calls upon Claire for help gathering together bail money, but since it’s Sunday, accomplishing such a task is much harder than going to the bank, where there’s a limit on ATM cash withdrawals. Luckily, it is revealed that Phil has some spare cash lying around the house. Not so lucky? Phil has hidden the cast around the house.

Take a look at the clip below from the episode airing Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET

Golden Globes: 'Modern Family' EP discusses nominations, plan for the rest of the season

Viewers might assume that Modern Family being nominated for Best Comedy at the Golden Globes would be a foregone conclusion — but Modern Family co-creator/executive producer Chris Lloyd didn’t see it that way.

“There was a little bit of trepidation about it because we’ve been lucky enough to be nominated in years’ past and I think there’s probably new reasons not to nominate us with each passing year,” Lloyd explained to EW this afternoon. “There’s the, ‘Oh, not those guys again’ syndrome, so we were really tickled to still be in the mix. … That’s the Golden Globes ethic I think, to kind of spread the love and kind of be the ones to crown the new show or the new young star. That’s part of what makes their award a fun one, that they’re a bit unpredictable, but for us, particularly, it makes it very gratifying that was still get to be in there because we’re anything but the new kid in town.”

'Modern Family': Julie Bowen's revealing, hilarious take on each of her costars -- LISTEN!

Five seasons in, the cast of ABC’s Modern Family knows each other well. Julie Bowen proved as much when Entertainment Weekly editor Jess Cagle asked her to describe each of costars during a chat on EW Radio this week. Listen to their chat below, which explores why Eric Stonestreet (Cam) is such a wonderful contradiction, how Ariel Winter (who plays her on-screen teen daughter) has to hide her “sexy,” and more Family tidbits.

'Modern Family' could get a spin-off

Could Modern Family be on the verge of an expansion? Quite possibly.

EW has confirmed that preliminary talks have begun for a possible Modern Family spin-off. Deadline first reported on the conversations.

One option currently on the table would see the new project centered on guest star Rob Riggle’s character, Gil Thorpe, who is Phil’s (Ty Burrell) nemesis.

The news comes just one week after Modern Family took home its fourth win for Outstanding Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards, and just days after its season 5 premiere garnered 11.4 million viewers.

'Modern Family' sneak peek: Mitchell and Cam celebrate Supreme Court decision on gay marriage -- EXCLUSIVE

It was a day that had many celebrating — and among those who lauded the Supreme Court’s decision on Prop 8 back in June? Mitch and Cam from Modern Family, of course!

And in this exclusive sneak peek from the season premiere, airing tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC, we get to share the happy moment with them! Well, it’s almost entirely pleasant — until someone spits up on the moment. You’ll see what we mean.

Meanwhile, we can’t help but wonder whether this announcement will cause Mitch and Cam to ask some important questions about their status as a couple — if you know what we mean. And this possibly spoilery photo from Jesse Tyler Ferguson has our hopes pretty high.

Adam DeVine lands recurring role on 'Modern Family'

Workaholics and Pitch Perfect scene-stealer Adam DeVine will have a recurring guest role on Modern Family this season, EW has confirmed. DeVine will play nanny to Manny and new baby Joe in several episodes of the fifth season of the ABC comedy.

TV Guide quotes executive producer Christopher Lloyd, who shares that the character is a nice guy from the Midwest who is “fun and matches Gloria’s energy in the house. But he doesn’t want to just take care of the baby. He wants to sort of revive the entire household, which leads to some territorial clashes with Jay [Ed O'Neill] and Manny [Rico Rodriguez].”

Modern Family will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 25.

'American Idol' ratings up: Has the bleeding stopped?

american-idol.jpg

Is it over? Can Fox peek out from behind their fingers now? Is it safe to look at Nielsen’s morning emails yet?

Fox’s American Idol may be finally leveling off in the ratings. After weeks of sharp and alarming and consistent declines — Idol was almost tied by ABC’s Scandal! — the last two episodes of the reality veteran have not dropped. In fact, both episodes went up slightly from the previous week. Last Thursday’s hour inched up 4 percent. And now last night’s two-hour Wednesday edition climbed 7 percent. Maybe season 12 finally found its bottom.

If so, not a moment too soon. Wednesday’s Idol had 12 million viewers and a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating in the demo. Modern Family (10.2 million, 3.8 rating) easily beat it and Criminal Minds (11.3 million, 3.0) was in the ballpark.

During tonight’s Idol results show, the reality competition will try something new. Fox will put a small box on the screen showing behind-the-scenes footage of the competition during the commercial breaks — thus hoping to hold your attention while sponsors like Ford, Coke and AT&T pitch their wares. TV advertisers are now so desperate for your attention that they’ll settle for having half of it. (And why not? It’s how advertising everywhere else works — from billboards to online banner ads.)

Meanwhile, the second week of ABC’s laboriously titled new sitcom How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) experienced a ratings drop. The Sarah Chalke comedy fell 14 percent for its second episode to 7.3 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49. For a show airing after Modern Family the performance by HTLWYPFTROYL is getting kind of soft.

Also last night: CBS crime dramas were up slightly. NBC’s Hannibal pilot encore picked up some additional sampling and retained nearly all of its SVU repeat lead-in. Click below for the full chart. READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family': Ty Burrell delivers a dozen hints about tonight's Valentine's Day episode

If you can find it in your heart to celebrate Valentine’s Day* a day early this year, your funny bone just might thank you. Tonight’s episode of Modern Family (9 p.m., ABC) is not only Cupid-themed, it veers from the show’s normal style of storytelling. “Heart Broken” will unspool each family’s story consecutively instead of cutting back and forth between them, and the three plots takes place on different days: Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) — or rather, alluring alter egos Clive Bixby and Juliana — kick off the festivities on Feb. 13, Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and Jay (Ed O’Neill) try to make the most of Feb. 14, and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) spend Feb. 15 cleaning up the mess of their wild party held the night before. Intrigued? Titillated? Etc.? Don’t answer yet. Mr. Burrell will now deliver a dozen roses hints about the episode to EW.com. READ FULL STORY
