LOS ANGELES - An anti-profanity crusader asked ABC on Tuesday to pull this week's Modern Family episode, in which a toddler appears to use a bleeped curse word. "Our main goal is to stop this from happening," said McKay Hatch, an 18-year-old college student who founded the No Cussing Club in 2007. "If we don't, at least ABC knows that people all over the world don't want to have a 2-year-old saying the 'F-bomb' on TV. " "We hope they know better," said Hatch. He was asking his club's membership, which he said totaled 35,000 in the United States and about three dozen other countries, to complain to ABC. ABC had yet to respond, he said Tuesday.

Ariel Winter opens up Like most girls, Ariel Winter , 17, used to wish she'd grow up to have big breasts. Then the unthinkable happened, and the Modern Family star had an alarming growth spurt when she was 15. "They kept growing and growing and growing, and it didn't seem like they were going to stop," she tells Glamour mag. "I was 15 years old with [size] F" breasts, says the 5-foot-1 actress. "How do you navigate that?" The media stopped writing about her as a performer and fixated on her physique, says Winter.

Kadir LaLena pushed his finger against the glass of the small tank in his mother's living room. Michelangelo, his pet turtle, was hiding. Gina LaLena guided the boy's hand. He'll come out, she said. He'll think it's food. Five years ago, Kadir came to LaLena as another foster child who required a bed for the weekend. She was divorced before age 25, was unable to conceive a child, and felt adrift. Hers was 5-year-old Kadir's 16th long-term home. He is autistic. He suffers from ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and other developmental delays.

STOP ME if you've heard this one before: Jim Parsons, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jessica Lange, Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, "Modern Family," "Breaking Bad" and "The Amazing Race" all went home with Emmys last night. What? You thought NBC was going to waste an original episode of anything on a Monday night in late August? Early - because NBC didn't want to compete with the MTV VMAs and doesn't like to interfere with Sunday night football - and often more like a rerun than a live show, the 66th annual Emmy Awards was nevertheless a fine night out for host Seth Meyers.

Steven Piacquadio likes to tell the story of how he had prepared a perfect argument - logical, balanced, full of wisdom - to convince Chris Schwam, then his life partner, now his husband, why they should move with their two children from the Collingswood home they had painstakingly renovated to a sprawling, early-20th-century dwelling just six blocks away. "I had rehearsed and rehearsed it, and the day came when I finally got Chris into the house," said Piacquadio, 52, a Realtor with Main Street Realty in Collingswood.

Ah, the familiar! We yearn for it. And no one consistently gives us more of the same than network TV. Monday sees the premiere of two new shows - NBC's propulsive thriller Blindspot and the CBS sitcom Life in Pieces - that mine, skillfully, the material that has fueled prime time for years. Venus . . . with tattoos Blindspot , which premieres at 10 p.m. Monday on NBC, opens with an arresting scene shown in so many NBC ads in the last three months that the episode feels like a rerun.

Earlier this week, at a party in New York to celebrate her book Whatever . . . Love Is Love , Norristown-born actress Maria Bello watched as her father had celebrity chef Mario Batali put salami directly into his mouth. "My dad was definitely the king," Bello said with pride. Bello's memories of her father, though, did not always elicit such pride. The third chapter of her book begins as Bello recalls asking her father, "Dad, do you remember when you chased us through the backyard with a gun?"

When former Inquirer writer Buzz Bissinger made the media rounds after penning the Vanity Fair cover piece announcing to the world Caitlyn Jenner's transition, reporters kept asking him how much he knew about transgender issues before working on the story. (I know, because I was one of those reporters.) He didn't know much, he told me and others he talked with, but what he did know he learned from Amazon's Transparent , the second season of which debuts Friday. Transparent was one of the first shows to present a transgender person as a human being - not comic relief or crazy, but a member of a family whose decisions affect not only her, but everyone else in her orbit.

The Emmys, airing at 8 p.m. Sunday on Fox, are in transition. But then again, so is TV itself. Some of the stalwarts that characterized the supposed Golden Age of Television are finished. Breaking Bad is done, meaning Jon Hamm may actually win after a Susan Lucci-like losing streak. Then again, this is the last year for Mad Men , as well. The end of Nurse Jackie finally means Edie Falco can give up her spot in the Lead Actress in a Comedy category when there are so many other deserving women who can take her place (the same could be said for Amy Poehler and Parks and Recreation , but they consistently deserved their berths)

Philly will be representing at the 67th annual Emmy awards. Upper Darby's Tina Fey, who between "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" already owns eight of the gold-ish statuettes, is up for four more. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," the Netflix series that Fey and "30 Rock" veteran Robert Carlock originally created for NBC, received seven nominations yesterday, including one for outstanding comedy and another for Fey's guest turn as attorney Marcia Cross. Fey's also nominated for her writing on the Golden Globe awards, which she co-hosted, and, in the same category, for writing on the "SNL" 40th anniversary special.

There are now enough people officially running for president to qualify for a TLC show. But while the entrance of Donald Trump and New Jersey's Chris Christie could add a little punch to "18 Candidates and Counting," the 2016 election is still 17 months away. For now, I'd rather the men and women seeking our nation's highest office were spending a little less time on our TV sets and a little more in front of their own. Because, like it or not, television is the national pastime.

THE MUPPETS and Don Johnson will both be back on TV this fall, but ABC entertainment chief Paul Lee doesn't want millennials to be scared. "This is not kind of your grandmother's Muppets. Not the old Muppets," Lee told reporters in a conference call yesterday to discuss the network's 2015-16 schedule, a few hours before unveiling it to advertisers in New York. "The Muppets," which will air at 8 p.m. Tuesdays, will be a mockumentary-style comedy from Bill Prady ("The Big Bang Theory")
