As Breaking Bad enters the homestretch for its fourth season, this week’s episode — in which a tragedy forced Jesse to choose sides in the Walt/Gus conflict — was far and away the highest-rated TV show among EW.com readers. Elsewhere, Glee jumped into the top ranks for the first time, thanks to an episode, “Asian F,” widely considered to be one of the show’s very best in a long time. Parks and Recreation continued its unbroken streak of top-tier ratings, while The Vampire Diaries dropped a bit to fifth. Here are the full standings: READ FULL STORY
Tag: Modern Family (81-90 of 185)
For the 2011-2012 season, you may have noticed that EW.com’s recaps have featured a new starred rating for the episode in question. Each Friday, we’ll reveal your highest-rated episodes for the week. The top vote-getter for this week, The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, should prrrrobably not be that huge of a shock given the show’s rabid following, and a strong episode that saw Elena, Alaric, and Damon confronting a hybrid just hours before a full moon. The biggest surprise? The polarizing series premiere of Fox’s New Girl pulled in the most total votes by far, and easily broke into the top five shows. Check out the rest of the list below: READ FULL STORY
It’s season 42 of Sesame Street come Sept. 26 (check your local listings), and the guest list could not be hotter. Among those on tap: Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams; up-and-coming actresses Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Amy Adams; Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Rico Rodriguez; Community’s Joel McHale and Ken Jeong; The Office’s John Krasinski; late night hosts Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O’Brien; musicians Elvis Costello and Bruno Mars; The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee and Jason Jones; The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki; funny guys Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg; Tony winner Sutton Foster; New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees; the New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony; and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. How’s that for variety?
Which guest appearance are you most psyched for? McHale, according to the caption on this photo, at some point, “demonstrates the word ‘prickly’ with the help of his cactus, pineapple and porcupine pals.” Yes, they look very friendly in this picture. I cannot wait. Sadly, we have no idea what Ferguson is demonstrating in the shot below of him with three chickens, but we love it. We’ve also got a surprisingly dignified portrait of Jeong with Elmo for you as well. READ FULL STORY
Forget Jackie O. Move over, Michelle Obama. If Sofia Vergara’s boyfriend has his way, the Modern Family actress will be the newest style-setter inside the Beltway by 2013, reports the Palm Beach Post. Banking heir and environmental consultant Nick Loeb, Vergara’s boyfriend of a year, is considering running for a U.S. Senate seat from Florida next year. Said Loeb of his potential campaign, “The Emmys are Sept. 18 and I’ll probably make a decision after that.” Glad he’s got his priorities straight! READ FULL STORY
The idea of the next few months being Modern Family-less is more frustrating than receiving a box of Baby Jesuses instead of baby cheeses. While the second season of the Emmy-winning comedy had some misfires (episodes like “Dance Dance Revelation” and “Our Children, Ourselves” likely won’t wind up in the pantheon of all-time greats), it was still an overwhelmingly hilarious and touching year with the Pritchett, Delgado and Dunphy clans. Moreover, this season provided so many stand-out lines that made us thankful we have DVR so we could go back to re-watch all the gems we laughed right over.
Before we count down to the season finale and spend our summers at Family Camp (we’d go with you, Phil!), we wanted to look back at our favorite zingers from each character. Trust us, it was no easy feat. Don’t forget (who am I kidding — you guys never do!) to tell us which lines we missed or let us know which ones that were your favorite in the comments section.
