TV Scoop: ‘Fringe’ Finale Gets a Date, ‘Modern Family’ Casts Gloria’s Mom

Mr. Burns on 'The Simpson'+ Fox has just announced that the two-hour series finale for cult sci-fi show Fringe will air on January 18. Here's to hoping that it will actually answer all the questions to the series, unlike that other J.J. Abrams show...

+ ABC's hit comedy Modern Family has cast Elizabeth Peña (Rush Hour, The Incredibles) as the Pilar, mother to Sofia Vergara's Gloria.

+ Juno writer and creator of Showtime's short-lives The United States of Tara, Diablo Cody, has sold her romantic comedy series to ABC. Alex + Amy "will revolve around a millennial guy and Gen X woman in love." No word on casting just yet.

+ Because just about every comedy series on air this week has to take a crack at the presidential election, The Simpsons billionaire Montgomery Burns endorses Mitt Romney.

+ Can you imagine anyone else other than Bryan Cranston as Walter White on Breaking Bad? Well apparently AMC wanted John Cusack or Matthew Broderick.

+ USA gives Political Animals, Common Law, and Fairly Legal the boot.
