When you think back on the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards—which portion will you remember the most?
For me, it will be George Clooney’s relationships (plural) with the cast members of Modern Family. Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, I beg of you two—please make this happen.

Tonight, the annual Emmy Awards telecast will be aired live on both the East and West Coasts (finally!). The ceremony will also incorporate fan tweets into Jimmy Fallon’s material—but will there be any other surprises in the 2010 broadcast?
Will 30 Rock continue its domination in the Comedy category, or will Glee - or even Modern Family - finally topple the reigning champ? Will Mad Men snag another Best Drama win, or will Lost get a statue for its final season?
What will Conan O’Brien say if he wins for The Tonight Show during this NBC event? Will Elisabeth Moss address soon-to-be ex-husband Fred Armisen if she wins for Best Supporting Actress? Oh – the awkward possibilities are endless!
So who won and who lost at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards? Read our West Coast play-by-play account of this evening’s telecast and find out!

- The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8 p.m.): “Amy’s friends and family forget about her birthday.” Everyone’s so wrapped up with her sister’s wedding to the oily beau-hunk.
- Miss Universe Pageant (NBC, 9 p.m.): “Global beauties compete in swimsuit, evening gown and interview categories at the 59th annual gala, hosted by Bret Michaels and Natalie Morales.” It’s like Bret almost died and went to heaven.
- Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10 p.m.): “A shooter aims for runners participating in the Boston Marathon.” Boston Marathon, biathlon—same diff!
George Clooney, Wyclef Jean and Anderson Cooper will be accompanied by a number of big names during their upcoming telethon.
Hope for Haiti, a fundraiser organized for the devastated country, will air commercial-free this Friday night across a number of networks. ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT are among the channels involved.

- The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm): “Financial issues have Ricky and Adrian at odds.” I hear Playgirl is always an option for baby daddies.
- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8pm): “Robin discovers that she’s the subject of a drinking game.” Every time she sits in the right booth take a shot; when she sits in the left booth, take two.
- The Buried Life (MTV, 10pm): Series premiere. “Four young adventurers tackle a list of 100 things they’d like to do before they die, while helping others fulfill their own dreams along the way.” “Bring back videos to MTV” will have to go unchecked.
When there’s a disaster of epic proportions, we can usually count on three things: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will donate a large chunk of change to the cause, Anderson Cooper will make his way to the middle of the tragedy, and George Clooney will rally the troops for a fundraiser.
To help those devastated by the earthquake in Haiti, the Up in the Air star has already immersed himself in plans for a possible celebrity-filled telethon.
The event - which will reportedly air on MTV, HBO and CBS - is tentatively scheduled for Friday, January 22.
ABC, NBC, CNN may also participate and televise the broadcast.
Jeff Gallen, the same who man produced the 9/11 fundraiser Clooney worked on (America: A Tribute to Heroes), will be involved with this project, as well.

MTV started showing everything but music videos. TLC began giving us household drama (what can we learn from that…avoid family life?). Discovery began airing its own original game show. Now, The Weather Channel is going to start showing movies.
Anything can happen on cable, people.
Of course, the network plans to stick to its main theme by showing flicks which largely feature - what else? - weather phenomenon. Beginning this Friday, TWC will have a movie night. First on deck is the George Clooney flick A Perfect Storm.
March of the Penguins, Deep Blue Sea and Misery (well, you can only stay on theme up to a certain point) are also on the network’s programming roster.

Love George Clooney but grown tired of ER? If so, here’s your chance to simply watch last night’s highlights.
In the vet-filled episode, Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) and Doug Ross try to convince a grieving grandmother (Susan Sarandon) to let her dying grandson go. Coincidentally, there are two patients back in Chicago (one being Dr. John Carter) who are in need of organs from the 16-year-old boy.
After watching the clips, let us know what you think. Will Dr. Ross always be Seattle’s resident McSteamy?
Wondering how NBC will coincidentally bring their seasoned ER vets back into the fold? Trying to figure out what role Susan Sarandon will play in the departing series?
Although it appears NBC will be keeping George Clooney‘s cameo close to the vest, the network has allowed us sneak peeks of two other cast faves: Julianna Margulies and Eriq La Salle.
Make sure to set your DVRs. Julianna, Eriq, Susan and George are all scheduled for the March 12 episode of ER.

UPDATE: Entertainment Tonight now says Margulies will be returning with Clooney.
After months and months of speculation, several sources are now claiming that George Clooney will be reporting for ER duty after all. The news comes despite denials last year from the Academy Award winner himself.
It’s not known when Doug Ross will resurface on the show, but the network recently extended the series’ 15th - and final - season by three episodes. (The hospital will now officially close its doors on April 2.) It’s also unclear whether Julianna Margulies will be checking in as well. Although we’ve already seen appearances from Shane West, Anthony Edwards and Alex Kingston (Noah Wyle and Eriq La Salle will arrive later), Margulies said back in November that she had no intentions of returning. “I feel like I left Carol Hathaway in the best scenario possible,” Julianna told the AP.
Clooney, who was last seen in a 2000 episode, will film his scenes later this week.
