This fall you can really feel the Modern Family influence in the development of most networks' new comedy slates, and it's especially noticeable on NBC's Thursday lineup. With the exception of the long-running Parks and Recreation, which until the double expectancy whammy of Ann Perkins and Ron's Diane had been curiously child-free for a show supposedly set in America's heartland, NBC's new sitcoms are very much in the family way, for better or worse.

(The fact that she kept it a secret until their adolescence was the crux of an argument last week between her and John Kennish that ended with him collapsing from what appeared to be a heart attack.)
Fox has ordered 13 episodes of the new animated comedy Murder Police for next season, the network announced Tuesday. The series, from Family Guy's David A. Goodman and Jason Ruiz, follows a passionate but incompetent detective and his colorful colleagues at the city precinct.
[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the season premiere of Private Practice. Read at your own risk!]
Private Practice wasted no time in doing episodes that were outside the box, as executive producer Shonda Rhimes promised.
In its season premiere, Private went full Rashomon-style, telling the same story from different perspectives, culminating in several big reveals for the doctors of Seaside Wellness.
