In case you missed out on the first season, Jay is married to Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and taking care of her son Manny (Rico Rodriguez). His son Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) lives with his partner Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and their adopted daughter. His daughter Claire (Julie Bowen)...

Voluptuous actress Sofia Vergara was desperate to undergo breast reduction surgery as a teen, because she thought her famous curves made her look like a "stripper."

The lovely Latina star of TV show "Modern Family" started busting out at the age of 13, and she begged her mum to let her go under the knife because she was so self-conscious.

Vergara tells Self magazine, "I wanted surgery. I told my mom, 'As soon as I'm older, please take these boobs away.' She said, 'Sofia, shut up. When you're 18, it will be different.' I was like, 'Why would I want these huge t**s? I'm a 34 DD. It's hard t...

So, without further ado, let's see what Jimmy Fallon can do...

5:00 – We start with a backstage shot – one of my favorite things about the Emmys has always been when the person directing the show wins and we get a look at the show being put together as it happens. So, needless...

2010 Emmys
It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners.
