Jesse Tyler Ferguson is known for playing neurotic lawyer Mitchell Pritchett on ABC’s Modern Family. The hit series premieres its ninth season on Wednesday, September 27, at 9 p.m. ET and has already been renewed for a 10th. But Ferguson isn’t just a talented actor. Ferguson is also super passionate about cooking and entertaining, and he even blogs with fellow foodie Julie Tanous at julieandjessecook.com. “If I wasn’t an actor, I think I would have found my way into culinary school,” he says.
The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were held last night at the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. And with 450 scripted television shows, the competition was fierce. “Tonight we binge ourselves. Can you feel it?” said host Stephen Colbert in his opening monologue. “This room is crackling with the collective energy of people who for the last 48 hours have consumed nothing but distilled water and Crest White Strips.”The night was filled with surprises from the get go.
Danny Strong cannot remember a time when he didn’t want to be an actor. His mom was a telephone operator working the after school shift. So Strong was a latchkey kid who spent many hours alone after school. And he liked to dream big. “This would never happen today, but I would come home, be by myself and watch TV all day,” he says.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
