Everyone on the internet has been going on and on about the historic Supreme Court rulings yesterday and what they mean for the fight for marriage equality. However, it seems to me that, amidst all the discussion, people have been ignoring the most important question of all: what is this monumental SCOTUS ruling going to mean for television?

Seriously, I'm totally happy for all the dudes and chicks who can now marry each other in California and inherit property without getting taxed up the proverbial ass. But none of that really affects me personally. What I really want to know is, what's going to happen to Cam and Mitchell on Modern Family? Are they going to get married now, or what?

Fortunately show creator Christopher Lloyd spoke to Entertainment Weekly on this very subject. In short, he said they're considering having the two tie the knot.

In long, he said this:

As you can imagine in Cam and Mitchell's life, they would be feeling that a door has opened that was closed to them. Wouldn't it be pretty tempting to think about walking through it? We imagine a lot of gay couples today are deciding whether to get married now that it's open to them. From our standpoint, that's something to explore.

So there you have it. The Supreme Court's huge decisions yesterday didn't just affect millions of gay Americans. It also affected the only two gay American's Mitt Romney knows anything about—even if they aren't real.

That's powerful stuff.
