Returning Favorites: Modern Love

Modern Family

ABC's Modern Family might look a bit different when the clan returns tonight at 9/8c. "Lily gained about 700 pounds," says Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell, one of the tot's adoptive pops. "OK, I'm exaggerating. But it's amazing how much she's grown in such a short amount of time."

He could easily be describing the show itself. In a mere year, the hilarious and unabashedly emotional family comedy has ... read more

Dexter's Michael C. Hall Gives a Bloody Good Gift

Dexter

On Dexter, no prop is more iconic than the box Dexter Morgan uses to organize blood slides of his victims. And, TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively, star Michael C. Hall gave an original box to his doctor after successful treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier this year. "He's an oncologist, and I noticed he had his own collection of bone marrow blood slides," says Hall, recovered and back at work on Season 5 (premiering September 26 on Showtime). "Towards the end of my treatment ... read more

NCIS Episode Recap: "Spider and the Fly"

Remember the series My Three Sons? It's looking like Season 8 of NCIS could be subtitled Our Three Fathers. Not only did the kickoff to the season center around Gibbs Sr. — aka Ralph Waite — but teasers were pointedly offered for the imminent returns of DiNozzo Sr. and Ziva Sr. Perhaps the theme music could be temporarily replaced with a nice chorus of that old John Hiatt song, "Your Dad Did."

French Stewart Soaps Up for Days of Our Lives

French Stewart

Warning: This performance may contain a trace of nut. When Days of Our Lives needed someone to play the funeral director at a pet cemetery, they handed the part to French Stewart. The former 3rd Rock From the Sun funnyman will appear on the NBC soap September 27 and 29 in scenes involving Brody (Eric Martsolf) and the theft of his mom's remains. Stewart is popping up a lot lately: He will guest on ... read more

Backstage at Dancing With the Stars: Hoff, We Hardly Knew Ya

Dancing with the Stars

"Were you surprised?" asks host Tom Bergeron moments after the show. "I was really surprised. I thought he'd go at least three or four weeks." The "he" in question is David Hasselhoff, the first star bounced from the new season of Dancing With the Stars.

But Hasselhoff knew read more

Watercooler: Premiere Week Survival Guide, Part 2

Glee

When it rains, it pours. And poor us, having so much new TV, right?

Once again, the television gods rained down upon us a night of too many choices as the fall season continued to unfurl. And just like Monday, our DVRs runneth over!

Of course, the biggies were the returns of a rather ungleeful Glee (boo to the unexpectedly short reign of Charice as New Directions' star-to-be!), NCIS and son, The Biggest Loser, and — because it won't go away —the first Dancing With the Stars elimination. (So long, Hoff!)

Crowded in among these ratings beasts were ... read more

The New Wednesday in Review: Undercovers, Defenders, Truth and ABC's Comedies

Undercovers

Wednesday is one of those nights when the returning shows have most of the juice — most notably ABC's Modern Family, returning to anchor ABC's terrific sitcom block with a best-comedy Emmy to its credit. (The season opener, alas, was not available for review.)
