When two different celeb friends told Jesse Tyler Ferguson that he should appear on Who Do You Think You Are? to learn more about his family ancestry, the actor was sold on the idea.
Except Ferguson never would have guessed what he ended up discovering about his family.
"We followed my great-grandfather's line, and I had no information about him at all," Ferguson tells PEOPLE. "He passed away before my dad was even born."
But only one day into researching his great-grandfather's life, the Modern Family star was stunned at the findings.
After last week's leg-endary finale of The Real Housewives of New York City, it was time for the rowdy reunion on Tuesday.
And what better way to recount the biggest drama from the Big Apple than with the juiciest lines from Part One of their reunion?
Nikki Ferrell was quite pleased with last season's Bachelor finale. But last night's Bachelorette finale was a whole different story.
Ferrell, who was chosen by Juan Pablo Galavis at the end of The Bachelor's 18th season, blasted ABC producers Tuesday night on Twitter while watching the culmination of The Bachelorette – seemingly in reference, fans say, to Nick Viall's revelation that he'd slept with Andi Dorfman – and suggesting that producers pushed him to admit it.
It's another magical day for Frozen fans, as two more actors have been chosen to bring characters from the beloved animated movie to life on Once Upon a Time.
It wasn't a happy birthday for Lizzie Rovsek on Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County, as almost no one showed up to help her celebrate.
"I'm psyched. It's my birthday! Go, Lizzie. It's your birthday," Rovsek happily sang as she boarded a party limousine before everyone started calling to cancel, citing colds and sick kids. "I don't think I've ever had a birthday party where no one showed up," she said.
On Monday night's live taping of "After the Final Rose," a seemingly bitter Nick Viall shocked both Bachelorette Andi Dorfman and the audience by revealing she had "made love" to him on their fantasy suite date.
Andi Dorfman is the Bachelorette! After a dramatic exit from Juan Pablo's season of The Bachelor, the former assistant district attorney, who lives in Atlanta, has been searching for love once again on ABC's hit franchise. And on Monday night's season finale, she found it: with former pro baseball player Josh Murray. Andi, 27, has been blogging for PEOPLE.com every week about the men, the dates and the difficult decisions she's made on her road to romance. Here is her final entry. You can also follow Andi on Twitter.
Wow, what an incredible season! I can't even put into words how grateful and truly blessed I feel to have gotten the opportunity to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
America has to wait a little longer to find out who the next Bachelor will be, but fan favorite Chris Soules may have dropped a big hint during Monday night's finale of The Bachelorette.
The sweet farmer from Iowa attended the taping of After the Final Rose, and though it was announced a new bachelor wouldn't be revealed, Soules – who was let go by Andi Dorfman two weeks ago – turned bright red and laughed nervously when the discussion launched.
Fans would certainly be happy if he's indeed snagged the spot. The soft-spoken contestant won over hearts when he was revealed as Dorfman's secret admirer throughout the season and further stepped up the romance game by telling her he was in love by hiring a plane to fly over his hometown date.
