Emmy flies on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

September 22, 2010 | 10:01 am

Our Gold Derby contributor Marcus Dixon sends us this alert:

On last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Emmy  herself made an appearance along with the cast of "Modern Family." Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen were all guests, and when they spoke about Stonestreet winning the Emmy, the award itself was lowered from the rafter, and Stonestreet took it arrogantly in his hands. Then he ordered Emmy to rise back up, and it disappeared -- but it hit the rafter and nearly broke away from its string, looking for a moment like it was going to fall on their heads. I was in the audience for this, and it was absolutely hilarious!

'Modern Family' returns – to claim another Emmy?

September 22, 2010 |  7:44 am

Modern family dvdTuesday, the DVD of "Modern Family's" first TV season went on sale. Tonight at 9 Pacific/Eastern, the show's sophomore season debuts with an episode titled "The Old Wagon" in which Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) get misty-eyed with nostalgia when they plan to give up their old Dunphy station wagon.

In our message boards, our posters are hoping the recent Emmy sweep of "Modern Family" (six trophies, include best comedy series, writing and supporting actor for Eric Stonestreet) will give it momentum heading into the next Golden Globes and SAG Awards, where it performed poorly earlier this year.

The Times' Home section has recent features about the homes showcased in the TV show. One reveals that the "Modern Family" home of Phil and Claire  is in Cheviot Hills and has a couch from Sofa U Love. In another, the TV series' production designer, Richard Berg, describes the Dunphy décor as "Pottery Barn-Restoration Hardware traditional modern."

Below, a TV Guide video of the cast performing a table read of an upcoming episode script.
