Does anyone have any good suggestions for a UPS? I need it to support my cable modem, router, and 20" LCD (I am playing off my laptop so it has "built-in" battery backup.

UPS is really designed to shut your system down safely if the power goes out. If you want a UPS for extended play time, you will need to know how much power the devices consume so that you make sure you pick one that is large enough to handle your load for an extended time. Most UPSs have an average hour based on load chart.
