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

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.”

Five seasons in, the cast of ABC’s Modern Family knows each other well.

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.

'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.

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.
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

Not surprisingly, Jay seems to be enjoying this a little too much for Gloria’s liking. Check out this trap-setting clip from the episode, which airs at 9 p.m. on ABC. READ FULL STORY
