Modern Family gets more modern with a gay wedding and and a little unimaginative with Nathan Lane not-so-surprisingly playing a flamboyant character in its next season. Even less surprising may be the combination of things we can't stand about teenagers, as MTV's R.J. Berger and Justin Bieber unwelcomingly make their way into our news for today...
Brothers & Sisters will be sputtering out one more, abbreviated season this year (and yes, possibly more than that, but -- c'mon), and while that certainly sounds ill-advised and unnecessary, at least some of the show's most annoying and/or misused characters won't be returning. If you're still watching it out of loyalty or just sheer masochism, here are some reasons this season might not be quite as terrible as you're accustomed to.
The rumor that Balthazar Getty's gig on Brothers & Sisters is ending soon has been swirling around ever since he started being photographed smooching a topless Sienna Miller on the high seas months ago, and now Ausiello is reporting that it's pretty much officially true now. Well, it's still technically a rumor because ABC hasn't confirmed, but it's Ausiello and he knows things from time to time so I'm inclined to believe it.
I've been surprised by how much I've been enjoying this season of Brothers & Sisters so far. No more Tommy, they've listened to the fan outcry and reduced Ryan's role, Kitty's cancer was introduced tastefully and is being dealt with in an emotionally effective way, Kitty and The Senator are, for the most part, finally behaving like adults and being far less stupid than usual about their relationship, The Senator's political blackmail problem has been squashed, and the show is always more hilarious when Sarah's getting laid, so I'm pretty happy.
