For the second week in a row, ABC's Modern Family posted significant gains, despite going head-to-head with ratings powerhouse American Idol.
Modern Family drew 10.1 million viewers, an increase of 8 percent from last week, and tied its season high in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Its lead-in, The Middle (8.2 million), was also up, improving 11 percent to reach a series high. Faltering against Idol, Cougar Town shed more than 3 million of Family's viewers and fell sharply in the 18-to-49 demo.
Fox, of course, won the night, anchored by Idol (25 million viewers), which was up 4 percent from last week, when it debuted in the 9/8c Wednesday timeslot...

Cougar Town, Ian Gomez
Is Cougar Town the next Friends? Ian Gomez, who plays beleaguered husband Andy on the show, says the similarities don't end with Courteney Cox's involvement. "It's funny how Cougar Town started as a show about a woman dating a younger man, and now it's kind of turning into an ensemble show about a bunch of friends and their misadventures," Gomez tells TVGuide.com. "And Lisa [Kudrow] came on! [Friends] did very well and I would be very happy if ours is half as successful as that. I just hope I'm not Joey!" Gomez talked to us about his TV wife, played by Christa Miller, his real wife, Nia Vardalos, and his hopes for a Felicity reunion.
Ellen DeGeneres' debut behind American Idol's judging table lifted the Fox hit's numbers as it remained Tuesday's most-watched program.
Idol's first night of Hollywood Week drew 27.7 million viewers, climbing 12 percent in the adults-18-to-49 demographic from the previous week and 4 percent in total viewers from Season 8's first night of Hollywood Week. Placing second at 8/7c was NCIS (19.7 million viewers), which took a small dip. NBC's Biggest Loser struggled against the tough competition in the first hour, but improved greatly in its second...

What the heck was Desmond doing on that plane? Any idea where the Lost powers that be are going with this? — Nora
MICKEY: I have some idea. If you'll recall, our friend Des has certain abilities that can supersede the time-space continuum. Is he really on that plane? When we pumped Henry Ian Cusick for scoop at the premiere in Hawaii, he would only say that off the island, Desmond is not happy. "The motivation has always been to get to Penny, and now he's got something slightly different. It's not about him, he's being more selfless. He's trying to help everyone," Cusick said.
Any Booth-Brennan dirt on Bones? — Nikki
