‘Modern Family,’ ‘Mad Men’ Take Top Emmy Honors (B&C)

It was Modern Family’s night at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards. And the freshman show’s raft of awards — as well as some token Emmy gold for Fox’s Glee and CBS’ The Big Bang Theory and The Good Wife — was enough to give broadcast television an awards season shot in the arm. Modern Family won the Emmy for outstanding comedy series, displacing oft winner 30 Rock. The ABC comedy also took home Emmys for supporting actor for Eric Stonestreet and writing for series co-creators and executive producers Steve Levitan and Chris Lloyd. paidContent: Another odd chapter in NBC’s mixed viral video history: it can’t post two of the clips that have the best chance of catching on from the 2010 Emmys. Host Jimmy Fallon knocked it out of the park with an energetic Glee-esque opener to Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” and later performed another number paying tribute to the end of 24, Law & Order and Lost. A spokeswoman suggested by e-mail that music rights are the issue.
