MODERN FAMILY - In the second half of the hour, entitled "When Good Kids Go Bad" (9:30-10:00 p.m.), Mitch and Cam plan a nice evening with the whole family to break the happy news that they're looking to adopt another child. However their parade is rained on when they realize Lily may not take well to another baby in the house. Meanwhile, Claire and Jay are each consumed with proving a certain point. "Modern Family" returns for its third season with a special one-hour event on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT)

The 2011 Emmys are Sunday, which means it’s time for everyone’s favorite awards-related activity: predictions! Vulture breaks down the major categories for you, deciding which nominees can be immediately ruled out, who has a fighting chance, whom you should pick for an Emmy pool, and which performers and shows would win in our dream world (no matter how slim their chances are in reality). Will it be Jon Hamm or Steve Buscemi? Amy Poehler or Tina Fey? Peter Dinklage or Alan Cumming? Just how many statuettes will Modern Family walk away with this year? Oh, a whole bunch.
