ABC’s Modern Family is ending its second season by adding a new series regular. The name of this pretty young new character: Bridgette. Who is she, you ask? “We’re getting a French bulldog for me to hang out with,” reports Rico Rodriguez (Manny). “She’ll probably be in the last three episodes of the season and then in multiple episodes next year. She’s a very good listener and has fit in very well.” We’ll have to see if Bridgette can deliver the same bark Ed O’Neill‘s previous canine co-star, Buck, brought to Married… With Children.

Steve Levitan, the co-creator of the Emmy- winning comedy series “Modern Family,” didn’t have to look far to find the home of the show’s Brentwood patriarch, above.
“It actually is the house down the street from where I live,” Levitan says. “I would drive past it every day, and it looked like the modern house that so many rich, divorced older guys seem to end up in.”
How did the crew create the looks, and where does all the decor come from? You can get the full story on the houses in “Modern Family” here. LA Times also got photos galore on “Modern Family” and two other family-themed shows in their 21-picture gallery.
Modern Family‘s recent Emmy win gave the show a boost: The ABC comedy drew its highest rating ever on a night when several new shows failed to get much attention.
Family‘s Season 2 premiere drew 12.6 million viewers and was the night’s highest-rated show among adults 18 to 49, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. That demo rating was also a 19 percent improvement over the show’s debut last fall.
