Modern Family

Last nights season finale of Modern Family was perfect, mainly because...NO LILY! That made me happy.  We've never met Phil's Mom before, and now we never will because...she died. Not sure what she died of but Phil and his Dad didn't seem THAT sad.  The entire family flew down to Florida for the funeral.  Lots of funny moments.  Cam stirring up trouble with the ladies in the complex and of course he can play Mah Jongg, makes complete sense.  Phil's Mom's last wish was for Phil to fix up his Dad with a women down the street, so Claire and Phil pretended to be vacuum cleaner sales people without vacuums to meet her.(Does anyone even go door to door to sell anything other than Jesus these days?) It didn't go well, but Phil ended up pouring his heart out to Annie Fitzsimmons anyway.  Funny, I always think it's only old Jewish families that retire to Florida, but in last nights episode, pretty sure my theory was blown to pieces. The Dunphy's aren't Jewish, Annie Fitzsimmons obviously wasn't, neither was Charlotte the slutty woman who took Jay's virginity who coincidentally lived across the street from the Dunphy's.  Was it my imagination or did Gloria give Hailey about some cleavage enhancing advice? They just seemed THERE all of a sudden. Thoughts? Not sure if Mitch and Gloria's trip to the hottest courtroom ever was before or after the Florida trip, but his stint to help Gloria out of her mistaken prostitution charge lead him to the realization that he misses the courtroom and wants to go back to trial law setting him up for a career change next season maybe?  Loved the ending with Luke and Manny sipping lemonade in rocking chairs talking about the weather and how time flies.
Nashville
Wow! What a perfect season finale!  Nashville was SOOO juicy last night. As I predicted, the second anyone in a primetime drama says "your secret is safe with me" we know the secret will be out any minute and that's exactly what happened.  Maddie told Deacon she thought he was his daughter, he confirmed it with Rayna seconds before she had to go on stage and perform with Brad Paisley.  I guess Mrs. Paisley got Mr. Paisley to help out during his day off.  Fine by me, I love Brad! Deacon went off the deep end and blew his 13 years of sobriety. Now we know why Rayna didn't tell him she was preggers back then...he's a really mean, dangerous drunk.  Gunnar called Scarlett and Coleman to come help Deacon  but he fooled them. He took a shower (so we got him wet and in a towel..thanks writers!) But then it was back to trouble with Rayna and you knew the second they got in a car arguing that a car accident was imminent. Man I could SO  be a writer on one of these shows.  Teddy's got it coming at him from all ends.  He's getting divorced, his non paternity secret is out, he's getting investigated for embezzlement,  beaten up by Deacon and if all that wasn't enough, his mistress is pregnant.  Honestly...GOOD, I can't stand him! Juliette was in bad shape after her Mom's death. She came to her senses and blew off the CMA's and her award for Best Female Vocalist to sit by her Mom's coffin and cry her eyes out. Gotta admit, her touching her in the coffin creeped me out a bit. Gunnar came clean about stealing his brothers songs and his fake outlaw act, but that wasn't enough for Scarlett.  She went and performed with Avery which freaked Gunnar out enough to get him down on one knee and propose. Gunnar walked in on Will and a woman which is odd since Will's gay, but he's trying to keep the rumors at bay. Tough to do when there are so many hot guys in Nashville he could be playing around with.  Scarlett's season finale wardrobe was the best of the worst this season...legwarmers? Are they back? Don't think so and if they are, I wouldn't think you would need them in Nashville ever. NEWS & INFORMATION

-CBS and Broadway are staying in business for a while.  CBS extended it's deal to broadcast the Tony Awards through 2018.  Just curious...did anyone else even want them?  Doubt it.  Good for you CBS loyalty is important.

-TLC is bringing back the NBC show Who Do You Think You Are. This is the one where celebs get special access to find their family history and learn about their roots.
