The Harris family is officially going away when Fox’s animated sitcom Duncanville returns for its sophomore season.

Ty Burrell on why he opened four bars in Utah

The Founder Series is a monthly column by and about Utah founders and how they got to where they are today. Click here to read past articles in the series. For a really long time, I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. I went to junior high and high school in Applegate, Oregon―a small town with 200ish people. I played a lot of sports and was, athletically, a “big fish in a small pond” during my years there.

Ty Burrell pays tribute to Fred Willard, the comedy legend who 'defied gravity'

Burrell explains the massive impact that Willard had on him while they worked together on Back to You and Modern Family. Where there was a Willard, there was a way to find new laughs. That mild-mannered Midwestern guy was a spicy master of quirk and surprise, right up until his death in May at the age of 86. Fred Willard broke through in the Rob Reiner mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, and later swiping scenes in such Christopher Guest mockumentaries as Waiting for Guffman, Best In Show, and A Mighty Wind. The Anchorman alum was a fixture of funny on TV, too, first with Fernwood 2 Night/America 2 Night, and then in a flurry of guest spots on sitcoms including The Golden Girls, Mad About You, Roseanne, Undeclared, Everybody Loves Raymond, Modern Family, and Review.
