'Modern Family's' cursing controversy: So how was the show?

Let's get this out of the way, first and foremost, about Wednesday night's episode of "Modern Family": Yes, it involved Cam and Mitchell's adopted daughter Lily saying the "F" word, not once, but several times. Before the episode aired, this upset some people.

As executive producer Steve Levitan explained, "For the record, when shooting, the actress who plays Lily never actually dropped the F-Bomb. After, who knows? She gets cranky when tired."

The young actress, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (though, we're guessing it is not really her) tweeted, "Fudge IS the f-word. Right?"

'Top Chef: Texas': Snow White and the seven chefs

This week we learned the Restaurant Wars hangover cure: one part Charlize Theron, one part Eric “The Ripper” Ripert, one part Padma in a romper, and a dash of product placement.

For the Quickfire, everyone’s favorite subtitled guest judge told the cheftestants they had 30 minutes to create a dish incorporating three random ingredients from a conveyor belt.

It was a completely absurd premise featuring a bunch of junk food, with a few choice seafood ingredients thrown in. The whole thing would’ve been more entertaining if we had seen the nervous interns behind the curtain swapping items on and off the belt as the Benny Hill music played.

Could the 'Twilight' saga continue?

Now that Lionsgate has acquired Summit Entertainment, the top exec at the studio is hoping that Summit Entertainment's "Twilight Saga" franchise has a bit more life left in it.

Adapted from Stephenie Meyer's four-book fiction series, "The Twilight Saga" was broken out into five films, with the fifth, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," arriving in theaters this November.

And although that would signal the end of Bella and Edward's tale being translated to film, the chief executive of Lionsgate appears nonetheless optimistic that they'll somehow be able to extend the story.
