Modern Family


Hey, ABC. You did good today!

Not only did the alphabet net pick up some show called The Middle which we're just going to sort of gloss right over, but network reps also just confirmed that they've given a full season pick up to Courtney Cox's (and Scrubs producer Bill Lawrence's) promising new comedy Cougartown, as well as our pick for the best new comedy of the season: Modern Family.

Don't you love it when good TV survives?

And yet, this also just in: Sources confirm that a certain NBC show many of you fans love has just been canceled. Southland starring Ryan Atwood Ben McKenzie.

The cop series aired a handful of episodes last spring, and had been slated to return on Friday nights with Law & Order this season, but according to insiders the plug has been pulled.

No word back yet from reps at NBC.

Michael Cudlitz, who plays Ben McKenzie's partner on the series, just tweeted: "Don't go quietly. People need to know when they f--k up this big. Saw ep 2.1...Dumb f--king people. Call NBC and ask them where the promos are. I am serious."

In other news, Cudlitz apparently will be looking for roles at other networks in the future.

Is NBC making a mistake? Is ABC on the money? Give your feedback in the comments below...
