Okay, so the 'Modern Family' season 4 salary talks are over, right? The adults are all happy with their six-figure-per-episode payday, and the kids are nice and set for college with weekly salaries more than we humble TV writers clear in a year? Good, we can get back to casting! As 'Modern Family' gears up for its biggest season yet (literally, in Gloria's case), at least one famous face is returning to the series. That's right, Dede Pritchett, Shelley Long herself will be back to cause an even bigger scene, but will things end up civil by the end?

In an article almost too depressing to write, it seems that 'Modern Family's child stars are going to be quite taken care of by ABC as well. It's been some time since all the hoopla surrounding the six elder stars vacating the series and launching a lawsuit to protest their meager (read: ginourmous) salaries, clearing the way for 'Modern Family's younger stars to get their raises as well in advance of season 4. So, how sweet is payday for a young 'Modern Family' star, and who's left in the cold?
So now that everybody's salary has been squared away (even the dog's), 'Modern Family' fans can breathe a sigh of relief that the show has resumed production, and things are going off without any further hitches. All that said, there are still some big questions to be answered when 'Modern' family season 4 premieres on September 26, and a few other big things as well. Most importantly: Will we be able to take our eyes off of a pregnant Gloria?
With all the drama surrounding 'Modern Family' season 4 and its multiple cast re-negotiations, its easy to forget that we're going to see plenty of faces outside of the Dunphys, Pritchetts and Delgados. And for a series that has boasted such impressive talent as Greg Kinnear and Edward Norton, it's good to see 'Modern Family' dipping into one of our favorite comedic wells by casting 'Reno 911!' and 'Bridesmaids' star Wendi Mclendon-Covey!
Earlier today, we saw a surprising article that detailed the current state of viewers for Sunday night cable series, some of which hardly seemed like they could be true. And yet, for as critically adored as series like 'Breaking Bad' may be, it just isn't where the big bucks are. A new list of TV's most paid stars that came out today will equally shock you, particularly when your salary is less than that of a monkey. Enjoy!
Just when you thought it was safe to get back into 'Modern Family,' more members of the cast have jumped onto the "we like money" bandwagon, causing yet another headache to be ironed out in advance of production on 'Modern Family' season 4. This time, it's the kids looking to follow in the grown-ups footsteps by banding together for a salary raise, but will they succeed? And what's this about a new dog?
'Modern Family' fans can now breathe a tremendous sigh of relief, as the tense negotiations have ended and the entire cast has officially been signed for season 4. Things got a little hairy there, but in the end all the "i's" have been dotted and season 4 won't miss a beat from production to premiere. But the big question is, if $150,000 and episode wasn't enough for the six adult cast members, what did they end up getting?
All week long we've been hearing about the stars of ABC's 'Modern Family,' and the circus that erupted after the principle cast declined to show up for the show's first season 4 table ready over unsettled contract negotiations. Later it seemed like the cast was willing to show up without officially closing any deals, but who actually arrived at the big day?
Oh thank goodness, the millionaire TV stars are getting back to work and swimming in Emmy nominations. Though there are still plenty of details to be hashed out in the ongoing 'Modern Family' contract negotiations, at least both sides have agreed to a temporary truce that will see a resumption in production for the show's fourth season. But, will it last?
Considering 'Modern Family' earned a whopping 14 Emmys nominations last week, you'd better believe that the stars of the show are going to want their overlords to pay through the nose for their talent. We'd previously heard a bit about the ongoing contract negotiations, but now a sudden twist has left the chairs empty for the show's first season 4 table read! What happened, and how long until it's resolved?
