If you take comfort in the Emmy Awards' almost shocking predictability in rewarding so many of the same shows and stars year after year, this might have been your favorite Emmy show ever. Otherwise, good luck distinguishing this rather dreary ceremony from any other year's. Instead, maybe it's worth looking ahead to next fall, when Breaking Bad will be out of the running and (lighting a candle to the Academy powers that be) Mad Men's Jon Hamm might finally get his Emmy after losing seven in a row, although at this point I wouldn't count on it. (It would help if Mad Men raises its game for its last stand.)
Breaking Bad's farewell tour went out on a high note, as the AMC drama won five awards including drama series at Monday's Primetime Emmy Awards, while Modern Family completed a historic five-peat.
Bad, which also scored drama series last year, became the sixth show to win for its final season after The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Barney Miller, Everybody Loves Raymond and The Sopranos. It's also the first to win the top prizes at ...
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet
Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) tied the knot on Wednesday's season finale of Modern Family, marking the first same-sex TV wedding since gay marriage was legalized in California. But as is usually the case with TV comedies, the nuptials didn't go off without a few more hitches.

Modern Family is heading to Sin City.
After Jay (Ed O'Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) get some upgraded rooms at a hotel on Wednesday's episode, they decide to bring the entire Pritchett-Dunphy clan with them to Las Vegas — which would be the perfect setting for Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam's (Eric Stonestreet) bachelor party, right?! Eh, not so much.

This week, the stars of the upcoming movie Muppets Most Wanted — both felt and human — got together to answer questions from Twitter users. A contestant on Wheel of Fortune solved a seemingly-impossible final puzzle with just two letters, and the self-described "world's greatest trick shot artists" performed nine trick shots in a row. Plus: A pit bull was caught misbehaving by a Nanny Cam, and The Huffington Post put together an amazing compilation of Christopher Walken dancing. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

What can you tell us about the new season of Girls? — Leona
Elijah (Andrew Rannells), Hannah's complicated roommate, will resurface with a new boyfriend in tow. Pal (ironic name alert!) is played by Buffy alum Danny Strong — who's also an Emmy winner for writing HBO's Sarah Palin movie Game Change — and he sounds like a handful. "I don't know if Hannah's a fan," Strong says. "I don't know if any of Elijah's friends are fans of Pal."

"It's not easy being mean." Those are the words of the frog Constantine in the upcoming Disney film Muppets Most Wanted, which hits theaters this spring. It seems that the master criminal bears a striking resemblance to another amphibian we may know: Kermit.
Fresh off Modern Family's fourth Emmy win for best comedy series, ABC is in early talks for a spin-off series, Deadline reports.
While there are still many ideas being considered, one potential concept is for the new series to focus on guest star Rob Riggle, who played Phil's (Ty Burrell) nemesis Gil Thorpe in two episodes last season.
