Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stone-street) hit the Australian beach on “Modern Family.”


TV picks for April 23:  "Modern Family,” "Snow Monkeys,” Ryan Seacrest

  • April 22, 2014 - 1:27 PM

Ryan’s hope

My suspicion that Ryan Seacrest clones walk the Earth much like they do on “Orphan Black” may be confirmed in “Best Moments: On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” a new special that captures his most memorable interviews and takes us behind the curtain of his popular radio show. 7 p.m. E!

Monkey business

Liam Neeson narrates “Snow Monkeys,” a “Nature” installment that takes us to the Japanese Alps, where a group of primates handle the bitter cold even better than an Iron Range veteran. 7 p.m. TPT, Ch. 2

G’day, mate!

Must be nice to be a cast member of “Modern Family” — and not just for the generous salaries. So far, the show has traveled to Las Vegas, Disneyland, Jackson Hole and Hawaii. Now the gang can add Australia to its docket as Phil goes in search of family roots and Gloria struggles to ask natives to put another shrimp on the barbie. 8 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5.
