Modern Family
9/8c ABC
No one can deny that Cameron has a theatrical side, and tonight he seeks to pass it on to Lily when a talent scout wants to put her in a commercial for a children's furniture store. Of course, the idea doesn't sit well with Mitchell, so it might be time for Cameron to come up with a stage name to protect her identity — and to keep Mitchell from finding out. Meanwhile, a faulty fire alarm at the Dunphys has Phil so worked up that it will probably detect the smoke coming out of his ears. — Joe Friedrich

Sunday Night Football
8:15/7:15c NBC
The Redskins may be out of the NFC East battle royale and the playoff picture, but that doesn't mean they can't have an effect on both. True, they rolled over against the Giants last Monday, but five weeks ago Washington gave the Cowboys all they could handle in a 7-6 loss (in which Tony Romo tossed the winning TD with 2:41 left in the game). For Dallas, this game at Washington is sandwiched between last Saturday's crucial upset of the Saints and next weekend's highly anticipated finale with the Eagles.

Premise: A popular documentary series profiling an eclectic range of notables, with each episode focusing on one figure. Based on a half-hour syndicated program that ran from 1961-64 and in 1979, the concept was successfully revived as an hourlong show with Peter Graves as host in 1987. Well-established and a franchise series for A&E by 1994, it later spun off the Biography Channel.
