The cast of Modern Family literally gets shaken up next season when an earthquake hits!
The trembler is just a small quake but has residual aftershocks for the whole family. "It's a very tiny little earthquake but spins stories off into different directions," co-executive producer Brad Walsh told TV Guide Magazine at the Paley Center Presents 'Inside the Writer's Room: Modern Family' on Monday in L.A. "It's going to be about how they react to the earthquake and the problems that it brings to the surface...
Whether it's the Simpson's on their couch, Jim Rockford asking callers to leave their name or an animated ad man leaping off a building, the fun of television isn't always limited to what happens within the show. These opening credit sequences can be as interesting — sometimes even more so — than the series they introduce each week.

Comic-Con has become the ultimate experience for TV fans. And more than 125,000 of them will descend upon the San Diego Convention Center from this Thursday through Sunday for screenings, star panels, autograph opportunities and specially designed collectibles. In the last few years, though, the featured TV shows have fallen into three distinct categories: the obvious "genre" programming like Fringe, Caprica, Supernatural, Futurama and The Vampire Diaries; the shows with tangential relationships to genre entertainment (see ABC's Castle panel, with former Firefly star Nathan Fillion, for instance); and finally, entries, like Glee, that make some hard-core fans think, "Why exactly is that show here?"
Joining that elite first group is AMC's The Walking Dead, a zombie drama based on the Image Comics title by Robert Kirkman, a veteran of the San Diego experience. "It seems like every time I go to Comic-Con, I discover a new VIP area," he says. "Like, 'Wait a minute, just behind this wall they're giving back rubs and everyone gets pink lemonade?'" ...
Attention Comic-Con fans!

"There's something pure about the show," Bakula tells TV Guide Magazine...
How can you not love Angie Harmon? Not only is the former model still superfine, but she is also packing
major brains and brass behind that pretty face. So it's fitting that her Rizzoli & Isles (Mondays, 10/9c, TNT) character, Beantown detective Jane Rizzoli, is proving herself to the old boys' club tonight when she takes on her pill of a new boss (Donnie Wahlberg).
Helping Harmon's case? Real-life research...

Jeers to Rizzoli & Isles for criminally neglecting its high-caliber supporting cast.
Per its title, the hit TNT crime drama follows the cutesy exploits of Beantown galpals Det. Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander). The wildly overqualified and underutilized ensemble includes Emmy nominee Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) and Oscar nominee Chazz Palminteri (Bullets Over Broadway) as Rizzoli's stereotypically squabbling mom and dad ...
