Question: My current favorite show on TV is Modern Family. How could anyone not love that show? My other favorite show is Friday Night Lights. How it has never been a huge hit baffles me. Both are such refreshing, positive shows about everyday families. There are no other shows that portray families in such a realistic way. Instead of amoral teenagers who have little to no parental influence or just overly dramatic dysfunctional families, these shows celebrate the best of what families are: They fight with and for their each other, but it is because ...

The Good Wife
God in America (Monday, PBS, check local schedules)
Is that Benjamin Linus in Puritan drag? Michael Emerson is among the familiar faces in historical recreations (as John Winthrop) as two of PBS' most prestigious franchises, American Experience and Frontline, team for a six-part (over three nights) survey of American history as seen through the prism of religion. From the nation's origins, built on the principal of religious freedom, the series winds its way through wars and social revolutions including the civil-rights movement, exploring the part religion has played in shaping this country's melting-pot nature...

The Whole Truth may have just granted itself a continuance.

As overlooked middle child Sue Heck on ABC's The Middle, 18-year-old Eden Sher has caught our attention, making us want to learn more about the girl behind the braces.
She used to have stage fright. "I was really shy when I was little and there was this mandatory school performance in first grade. I refused to go on, but my mom forced me and it was like, 'Click, love it!' Once I realized that I didn't die on stage, it was really great."

Pop quiz: Which TV character this week said this line: "I'm tired of running." And who said this? "I'm done running." Hint: One of them is running straight to the unemployment line.
And so we confront the paradox that one character whose life is built on a lie — the celebrated anti-hero of Mad Men, Don Draper (who uttered the first line) — escapes his latest identity crisis and lives to see another day and several more seasons. Whereas the equally handsome Texas con man Robert Allen of Fox's DOA Lone Star (he's the source of the second quote, unloading on his crooked father) sees his story cut short after a mere two weeks on the air...
Law & Order: Los Angeles

After a long drought that had critics reading prime-time comedy its last rites, the genre is back, thanks to a handful of veterans like NBC's The Office and several new upstarts, including ABC's recent Emmy winner Modern Family. With that in mind, TV Guide Magazine sat down with Neil Flynn (The Middle), Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory), Mindy Kaling (The Office), Joel McHale (Community), Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) to talk comedy, careers and cop shows. ...
Modern Family's recent Emmy win gave the show a boost: The ABC comedy drew its highest rating ever on a night when several new shows failed to get much attention.
Family's Season 2 premiere drew 12.6 million viewers and was the night's highest-rated show among adults 18 to 49, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. That demo rating was also a 19 percent improvement over the show's debut last fall.
Before Family, ABC's new comedy Better with You drew 8 million viewers and The Middle pulled in 8.8 million viewers...
