Question: I noticed that there are back-to-back new episodes of Modern Family this Wednesday night leading up to the premiere of the new musical drama series Nashville, while Suburgatory won't have its season premiere episode until the following week! Why did the TPTB at ABC felt the need to air two new episodes of Modern Family instead of premiering the second season of Suburgatory after MF and before Nashville? Was it because the network believes that two new episodes of MF running back-to-back together can make a more powerful lead-in to the series premiere of Nashville ratings-wise than Suburgatory, or is the network just that plain lazy with their programming schedule? — Chris B

Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph, Will Arnett
The first season of Up All Night ended on a high note, with Chris (Will Arnett) finally getting to propose to Reagan (Christina Applegate) the way he'd always dreamed. But don't expect everything to be romance and rainbows when the show returns for its sophomore season Thursday at 8:30/7:30c. Creator and executive producer Emily Spivey and producer Tucker Cawley spoke to TVGuide.com about the huge changes coming to this season, which kicks off with some very bad news for Reagan and Ava (Maya Rudolph).
It's down to the Top 6 on So You Think You Can Dance, and Up All Night star Christina Applegate is back as a guest judge. Tonight, the panel can no longer save their favorites, but only offer up their infinite wisdom to sway the voters at home.
The contestants will each perform one solo and two paired dances (with an all-star and a fellow contestant) tonight. No wonder there are so many injuries! Will this be the week that Cyrus' lack of training or his charisma prevails? Who will make it to the Top 4? Here's a breakdown of the paired dances:
Daniel Baker, Janaya French and Nick Bloxsom-Carter
In So You Think You Can Dance's first elimination episode of the season, the judges sent Alexa Anderson, Daniel Baker, Nick Bloxsom-Carter and Janaya French home Wednesday night.
Although Anderson was not available, the other three spoke to reporters about their time on the show and thoughts on the new once-weekly episode format. Do they like the season's changes? Which dancer is taking off for Mexico? Who is setting their sights on Dancing with the Stars? Check out the interview below:
Bud Bundy, you've been replaced. NBC's Up All Night is adding a new series regular to its cast for season two. Character actor Luka Jones has been cast as Reagan's (Christina Applegate) brother, Scott.
Scott is described as Reagan's younger, laid back sibling (kind of like Married...With Children's Bud).
Emmy season is underway! For the next two weeks, Emmy voters will be checking off names and shows they think are worthy of getting a nomination come July 19. We at TVGuide.com have a few selections in mind ourselves. Next up: our dream ballot for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
It's true: Females are funny — and StandUp in Stilettos is about to prove it.
The new half-hour series from TV Guide Network, premiering Saturday at 10/9c, features three comediennes per show. And no, it's not just for females to watch. In fact, men will enjoy it just as much... if not more! Hosted by The Office's Kate Flannery, Stilettos boasts a familiar array of funny ladies, including 24's Mary Lynn Rajskub, Parks and Recreation's Retta and infamous comedy duo Frangela. We talked to Flannery about how women have changed comedy, what she says to people who think females can't be funny and why she doesn't believe next year will be the last season of The Office...
Amy Poehler, John Krasinski
NBC has renewed The Office, Parks and Recreation, Whitney and Up All Night, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The Office will enter its ninth season. As of Thursday, NBC was working on a deal to sign John Krasinski, Ed Helms and Jenna Fischer to return. A contract has not yet been worked out for star/writer/executive producer B.J. Novak.
