Will 'Modern Family's' Mitchell and Cam get hitched? Maybe, Jesse Tyler Ferguson says

As gay couples celebrate hard-won rights, will "Modern Family" see Mitchell and Cam (Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet) say "I do" when the comedy returns?"It is a possibility," Ferguson tells Zap2it. "It's in the hands of our writers.

Wednesday (June 26) was an historic day in America with the SCOTUS ruling that rendered the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, giving same-sex married couples the same federal rights as their heterosexual counterparts.

'Modern Family' Season 4 finale: 'Goodnight, Gracie' ends with a Dunphy funeral

It takes a self-assured comedy to end a season with a funeral for a character the audience has never met, which is exactly what "Modern Family" does. Wrapping up its fourth season on Wednesday (May 22), the ABC sitcom remains one of TV's most watched comedies, knowing that, at this point in its run, it can do just about whatever it darn well pleases.So, the show kills off Grandma Gracie Dunphy, a character we've never met and therefore find little to be moved by with her death. Or so it would seem. At the onset of the episode, as the entire Dunphy-Pritchett clan descends upon Florida to mourn, not even the woman's son or husband seem that torn up about their loss. True, Claire (Julie Bowen) has an aside in the cold open about the death not being unexpected, but the lack of palpable grief from Phil (Ty Burrell) or Frank (guest star Fred Willard)... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/modern-family-season-4-finale-goodnight-gracie-ends-with-a-dunphy-funeral.html
