america’s top tv critic matt roush answers your burning questions

@TVGMMattRoush It may be too early to speculate, but I can’t help but wonder how they’ll be ending ABC’s Modern Family a year from now. Here’s what I’d like to see: We finally get a look at the crew who’ve been filming the family all these years (for those cut-aways where they talk to the camera), and in the final shot, the director comes into range and shrugs, “Yeah, there’s not enough there to use for anything. Let’s just forget the whole thing.” Fade to black. It will never happen, of course, but I hope that whatever they decide, this stalwart (if a bit worn-out) Emmy winner gets the same kind of hype that surrounds The Big Bang Theory. —Aaron MATT ROUSH: That’s kind of brilliant. I’m sure the industry and media…

will your favorite show be back?

EVERYONE GETTING NERVOUS? That’s typical this time of year as the networks make their final decisions on which series get to live on for another season. Some calls have already been made—Blue Bloods, The Good Place and The Good Doctor are among those coming back—but 51 scripted shows are still sweating it out. All fates should be determined by the week of May 13, when the broadcast networks announce their 2019–20 lineups. Here’s where things stand as of press time. DRAMAS Shonda Rhimes’s Grey’s Anatomy will surely be prescribed a 16th round—the March 28 episode hit a season high with 7.4 million viewers. Spinoff Station 19 will likely continue to put out fires (averaging 5.3 million viewers for the season), but it’s not such a sure thing for Rhimes’s other ABC dramas,…

georgia engel

IF MARY TYLER MOORE turned the world on with her smile, costar Georgia Engel managed an equally nifty trick: turning the image of the ditzy blonde on its head with a beguiling innocence, sweet sincerity and crafty comic confidence. “The perfect mix of talent and kindness. With a sprinkle of perfect comic timing,” Ed Asner wrote on Twitter of the character actress with the wide eyes and birdlike voice, who died April 12 at age 70. (No cause of death was announced, as Engel was a Christian Scientist and didn’t consult doctors.) “I think of her as a cross between Stan Laurel and Marilyn Monroe,” Moore told TV GUIDE MAGAZINE in 1973, not long after Engel seamlessly joined The Mary Tyler Moore Show’s esteemed ensemble as Georgette, blustery Ted Baxter’s ingenuous girlfriend…

blue bloods’ big day

YOU ARE CORDIALLY invited to the long-awaited nuptials of Blue Bloods’ NYPD Sgt. Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) and Officer Edit “Eddie” Janko (Vanessa Ray) on Friday, May 10 (10/9c, CBS). Joining the Reagan clan at the celebration—shot last month at NYC’s Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, built in the 1800s—are Eddie’s mom, Lena (Christine Ebersole), and a number of the couple’s friends and coworkers. “We had over 400 people, amazing flowers and a beautiful church,” says Estes. “And I wore a morning suit and tails!” Not to be outdone, the bride is elegant in a strapless Marisa Collection champagne lace A-line gown with a train. “It was fitted so well that my ribs were bruised after wearing it all day,” Ray reveals. Of course, no big event on Blue…
