MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Christian Yelich was a late arrival to the Milwaukee Brewers' annual winter fan festival. Considering the reason, his tardiness was more than understandable.

'Modern Family' Renewed for 11th and Final Season by ABC

'Modern Family' Renewed for 11th and Final Season by ABC ABC has set an end date for "Modern Family," renewing the sitcom for an 11th and final season. The announcement was made by ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour. "Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history," Burke said. "In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won't want to miss." During its run, "Modern Family" was among the most-nominated comedy series, winning a total of 22 Emmys, including five straight years for Outstanding Comedy Series (2010-2014).

Must C: Top moments from Brewers ' exciting '18 season - Продолжительность: 58:55 Milwaukee Brewers 34 510 просмотров. Christian Yelich Joins The Beer Chugging Competition - Продолжительность: 0:29 Milwaukee Bucks 31 408 просмотров.

Yelich spent Saturday night in New York, where he was presented with his 2018 National League Most Valuable Player Award trophy. He then flew back to Milwaukee on Sunday on the private jet of team owner Mark Attanasio.

It's quite a difference from a year ago, when Yelich had flown on the very same plane to Milwaukee just days after he was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Miami Marlins. Joining him on that flight were Hall of Famers Robin Yount and Bob Uecker, as well as Ryan Braun, who had been the last Brewers player to earn MVP honors.

''You are on this flight with Brewers royalty and you kind of feel out of place at the time,'' Yelich recalled Sunday.

Now, after one of the most prolific seasons in franchise history, Yelich is part of that echelon. His No. 22 jersey was among the most popular among in the sold-out crowd at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee and his line for autographs was easily the day's longest - even more so than those for franchise icons Yount and Uecker.

Legion to End After Season 3

Legion to End After Season 3 Legion is approaching its final panel: The FX comic book drama’s upcoming third season will also be its final season, the network announced on Monday. “Noah Hawley had always considered Legion to be a three-season show,” FX CEO John Landgraf told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, “and he has confirmed that he’s going to stick with his plan. This will be the final season.” Landgraf added that Season 3 of Legion will debut in June. Legion stars Dan Stevens as conflicted mutant David Haller, who’s spent his life in mental institutions but now discovers that what he thought was an illness may actually be his superpower.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich is picking up the 2019 season right where his 2018 MVP season left off. Christian Yelich 's historic homer means this Brewers family is getting a new puppy.

Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich is out to prove that his MVP season wasn't a one-time thing.

''He's a superstar,'' said manager Craig Counsell, who presented Yelich at Saturday night's awards banquet. ''We had people chasing our car down last night down the streets in New York.''

''But I think from his perspective, he's really looking forward to playing baseball again. And then it's a little bit more business as usual,'' he said.

Business as usual has taken on a new meaning in Milwaukee after Yelich and the Brewers burst back onto the national scene last season, storming into the postseason before finishing a game short of the the franchise's first World Series berth since 1982.

Yelich played a key role in that run. Acquired to add a more consistent left-handed bat for the top of a lineup that struggled to produce in 2017, Yelich got off to a good start and earned his first career All-Star nod by hitting .292 with 11 home runs and 43 RBIs in the first half.

That turned out to be nothing more than a prelude of what was to come.

PG&E says judge's wildfire safety plan would cost at least $75 billion, lead to huge rate hike

PG&E says judge's wildfire safety plan would cost at least $75 billion, lead to huge rate hike Pacific Gas and Electric Co. on Wednesday blasted a federal judge's plan for wildfire safety as unrealistic, saying his proposal for the utility to inspect every inch of its electrical grid and remove dangerous trees would cost $75 billion to $150 billion and lead to staggering rate hikes. The embattled California utility, which plans to file for bankruptcy because of wildfire claims, said it "does not have the ability to raise those funds" and would have to turn to ratepayers for more money.

Christian Yelich is the frontrunner to win the NL MVP , and his Milwaukee Brewers teammates let him hear it following their win in the NLDS.

There are many modern shopping malls throughout Moscow, but if you want to experience the retro charm and nostalgia of days past, there is no better place than GUM on Red Square or Eliseevsky food store on Tverskaya.

After hitting in three straight games heading into the All-Star Break, Yelich stretched his streak to 15 games to open the second half and had raised his average to .317 after closing out August with a 2-for-4 showing in a 4-1 victory at Washington.

His best work came over the final month as he batted .352 (31 for 88) with 10 home runs, 33 RBIs and a 1.307 OPS. He went 3 for 4 in a tiebreaker win over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field that gave the Brewers the NL Central crown. The Brewers, who had been out of the playoffs since 2011, swept Colorado in the NL Division Series before losing to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 of the NL Championship Series at Miller Park.

Topping that final-month performance is a tall order, especially over the course of an entire season. But Counsell was confident that Yelich, just entering his prime at age 27, was more than capable of handling the pressure and expectations that come with an historic season that fell just short of the ultimate goal.

''Christian and I actually had a conversation about it last night,'' Counsell said. ''Christian has a huge challenge in front of him. I think he's looking forward to that. He wants to get better and he feels like he can get better. That's what's on his plate and that's what you want on his plate.''

‘Grace and Frankie’ Renewed for Season 6 at Netflix

‘Grace and Frankie’ Renewed for Season 6 at Netflix Netflix has renewed “Grace and Frankie” for a sixth season ahead of the Season 5 premiere this Friday. The series stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as the titular characters who found their lives turned upside down when their husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, respectively) revealed they were gay and left the women for each other. Season 6 is expected to launch in 2020. The show, which comes from creators Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, is executive produced by Kauffman, Morris, Paula Weinstein, John Hoffman, Billy Finnegan, Robbie Tollin, Fonda, Tomlin, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross.

Yelich insists he's still the same player - the same person, too. And while he acknowledges setting the bar high last season, he's hoping to use the one-game difference as a motivator for another magical year.

''Life has changed a little bit, but I'm taking it all in stride and learning along the way,'' Yelich said. ''I'm just really excited to getting back to playing baseball and picking up where we left off as a team and seeing if we can make that next step.''

Brewers' Braun changing swing, focused on being a force.
Now 35, Ryan Braun is years past his dominant, MVP self. Yet the aging slugger is trying to set himself up to be a part of the Milwaukee Brewers' promising future. Specifically, Braun is doing something he's never done: changing his swing. And to do that, he's been using analytics. ''Based on where my swing was at the beginning of the offseason, I've made some productive adjustments at least according to all of those (analytics),'' Braun said Sunday at the Brewers' annual winter fan festival. ''It'll be interesting to get back out onto the field and see how those things play out,'' he said.
