The Modern Family Kids Would Also Like More Money

MODERN FAMILY - "Tableau Vivant" - It seems everyone has a bone to pick: Jay and Gloria get on each other's nerves while trying to simply order lunch at their local diner; Phil is put in the position of having to fire Mitchell; Cam and Claire have opposing theories on how to discipline children; and Manny is upset with Luke for accepting an award under false pretenses - all of which spells trouble for Alex who is counting on them to all work together for a "living art" school project display, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, MAY 16 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

NOLAN GOULD, RICO RODRIGUEZ

Now that their adult counterparts have successfully negotiated for salary increases, the child stars of ABC's Modern Family are looking to do the same. Sources say 13-year-old Rico Rodriguez (Manny), 13-year-old Nolan Gould (Luke), 14-year-old Ariel Winter (Alex), and 21-year-old Sarah Hyland (who plays Hayley and is more of a young adult) will begin talking to the show's studio, 20th Century Fox, about the subject next week, though their conversations are expected to be less "contentious" than those of the grown-up actors.
