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.

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.

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.

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?"

ABC's Emmy-winning "Modern Family" and CBS' "Criminal Minds" both came back strong Wednesday night, attracting 12.6 million and 14 million viewers, respectively, according to the preliminary Nielsens. In the 18-49 demographic advertisers pay to reach, "Family" drew the most of any single show, though CBS won the overall evening.

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")

* FRESH OFF THE BOAT. 8:30 and 9:31 p.m. Wednesday, 6ABC. * ALLEGIANCE. 10 p.m. Thursday, NBC10.   WHAT DOES it mean when we call something groundbreaking? I think it should mean we can come back in a year or two and find more than a deep hole. So I'm not going to saddle ABC's very funny "Fresh Off the Boat" with the G-word. Because it's been a little more than 20 years since comedian Margaret Cho became the first Asian-American to star in a network sitcom.
