Ann Romney Loves 'Modern Family,' 'Jersey Shore' Calls It Quits And More: What TV Taught Us This Week

Posted: Updated:

With the elections right around the corner, this week was a politically charged one in the TV world -- especially in regards to gay rights.

Not only did Ann Romney declare "Modern Family" her favorite show, despite being openly against gay marriage, but Ellen Barkin gave a strong opinion on the backlashNBC's new show "The New Normal" has received because it centers on a gay couple.

Additionally, Charlie Sheen's show "Anger Management" got the green light from FX to crank out 90 more episodes, while MTV finally burned out on "Jersey Shore" and announced that its upcoming Season 6 would be the show's last.
