How to Get Away with Murder Premieres Thursday, September 28, 10 p.m.

How to Get Away with Murder

Murder, deception, fear and guilt are the ties that bind Middelton University Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) to her long-time associates Frank Delfino, Bonnie Winterbottom and her students. But as the group struggles to move on with their lives and focus on their clients, their past continues to haunt them, as Annalise and her inner circle struggle to keep their secrets from getting exposed. Relationships will be fractured, lies will spin out of control, and shocking, new mysteries upend their entire lives.

Modern Family Premieres Wednesday, September 27

Modern Family

The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family with Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neil) sitting at the head. By his side is his vivacious, younger second wife, Gloria (Sofia Vergara), and together they are navigating life with their youngest son, Joe, and Gloria’s son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez), who is heading off to college to explore the world on his own terms. Meanwhile, Jay’s grown daughter, Claire (Julie Bowen), and her husband, Phil (Ty Burrell), are learning to navigate life as empty-nesters with the youngest, Luke (Nolan Gould), now out of high school and looking to his next move; middle daughter Alex (Ariel Winter) is learning how to balance academia and a social life, and eldest Haley (Sarah Hyland) is still living at home as she pursues a career and love. Then there’s Claire’s brother and Jay’s grown son, Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), and his husband, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), who are about to enter the dreaded middle-school years with their newly discovered, gifted daughter, Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons). These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.

Critics Trying to Launch a Ballot Measure to Bring Issue Before Voters

A new gun law is set to take effect in January of 2018 with the goal of preventing shootings like the one that happened at an Eastern Washington high school on Wednesday. The law will allow authorities to take the guns of anyone deemed a threat to themselves or others.
