So Modern Family, ABC's new pretty darn funny comedy, premieres tonight. And that got me thinking about families. TV families, that is. Pretty much every third TV show is about a family, but only a certain few stick out as the truly great television families--ones we admired or wanted to be a part of or loved to laugh at. With that in mind, here are my five favorite TV families.
Comedian Bill Cosby has settled a lawsuit brought by a woman who claimed he sexually assaulted her, Cosby's publicist said Wednesday.
Andrea Constand, a native of Canada, said in her suit the attack occurred at Cosby's home in suburban Philadelphia in early 2004, when he allegedly drugged her and then assaulted her.
"Ms. Constand and Mr. Cosby have resolved their differences, and therefore the litigation has been dismissed," Cosby's publicist David Brokaw said in a statement. He said there would be no further comment.
Constand's suit alleged that at least 10 other women also had been assaulted by the 69-year-old comedian.
Prosecutors declined to file criminal charges against Cosby, saying there was insufficient evidence.
