ABC Wanted Very Different Cast For 'Modern Family' According To E! Special (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
E! took viewers behind the scenes of "Modern Family" with a special presentation. There were interviews with the cast, and a few interesting secrets about the show. One of those was that ABC wasn't all too happy with that cast in the beginning. While it's been widely reported that the network wanted Craig T. Nelson over Ed O'Neill, that's just the tip of the iceberg. ABC originally passed on Ty Burrell and was pursuing Matt LeBlanc for his role. Julie Bowen wasn't even being considered for the show because she was very pregnant at the time. In fact, Kristen Johnston and Lisa Kudrow were in the running, which would have made for a very unusual weekly "Friends" reunion. The network also originally wanted Jesse Tyler Ferguson to play the more flamboyant Cam, rather than buttoned-down Mitchell. Luckily, though, they didn't get their way.

Did 'The Onion' Predict This Controversy?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Satire kings The Onion might have parodied CNN's coverage of the Steubenville rape trial two years before the serious and quite real events occurred. A segment from The Onion's short-lived Comedy Central series "Sportsdome" featuring the satirical headline, "Athlete Overcomes Rape," has resurfaced online after CNN's coverage of the trial was criticized for focusing on how the outcome will affect the teen athlete attackers rather than the victim. Former "Sportsdome" staff writer Krister Johnson posted the segment to YouTube and noted in the description: "It could have been produced by the CNN team covering the Steubenville rape verdict."

Anderson Cooper Compares Fat Cat To 'Big Tub Of Jello'
Crabby Golightly - over 4 years
CATTY CONVERSATION Anderson Cooper Compares Fat Cat To 'Big Tub Of Jello' By Elizabeth C. POOR MEOW, TIPPING THE SCALE AT 37 pounds and being forced to succumb to the white heat of fame, all for our entertainment pleasure. Here is is visiting Anderson Cooper in New York today. Some say it's the closest that Cooper ever got to a, a, a, pussycat. Cooper took it in stride, even if he did rudely compare Meow to a "big tub of Jello." The 2-year-old feline was turned into a shelter in Santa Fe, New Mexico because his 87-year owner could no longer take care of him. Some speculate that he was on a hot dog diet. Meow's so fat that shelter managers won't even consider placing him in a home until he loses weight. Kristen Johnston who cohosted the show, asked, "But seriously, what's wrong with a fat cat?" You tell 'em, Kristen. Even fat cats need love.
