Peter Finds Condoms in Alicia's Drawer on 'The Good Wife' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 10th 2010 4:58AM
The Good WifeUh oh. It's always a bad sign when you come home from prison and find condoms in your wife's bedside drawer. Why? Because she has an IUD. Oh, she had it removed? Then who are the condoms for?! Who?!!!

You can just tell that the scene where Peter finds the condoms in Alicia's drawer on 'The Good Wife' (Tue., 10PM ET on CBS) is going to escalate into a knock-down drag-out fight. Of course, it would help if Peter was trustworthy in the marriage department. Time will tell on that score.

Watch the video after the jump.

Peter Returns Home on 'The Good Wife' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 3rd 2010 6:15AM
The Good Wife, Chris NothAwww ... Peter returned home to Alicia and the kids on 'The Good Wife' (10PM ET on CBS). It was a nice homecoming, though a little awkward with the law enforcement guy and silver briefcase in tow.

You've gotta think there are lots of emotions stirring in Peter and Alicia's simple "Hi" and hug. And lots of adjustments going forward, too.

Watch the video after the jump.

Alan Cumming to appear on The Good Wife

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 26th 2010 10:00AM
alan_cumming_broadway_worldWhen last seen on TV -- by me -- the super-talented Alan Cumming was singing "That's Life" on the M&M float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Well, in his next TV gig, there's no music on the agenda. Alan Cumming will be guesting on The Good Wife, playing a character by the name of Eli Gold.

Robert Keck interviewed Graham Phillips, who plays Zach Florrick on the show, the teenage son of Chris Noth and Julianna Margulies' characters. Graham revealed that Gold is brought in to rehabilitate his dad's reputation.

CBS renews NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 15th 2010 10:00AM
good_wife_NCIS_laThis should come as no surprise to anybody who's been following the current television season. CBS has renewed The Good Wife and NCIS: LA for second seasons. Both shows are part of a solid Tuesday night lineup for CBS, amassing strong Nielsen ratings and even better numbers in total viewers, holding much of the audience from the NCIS lead in. All that adds up to a winning formula, and thus, CBS wasn't going to break up a good thing.

As for the quality of the two shows, they both deserved renewal. They've improved as the season has progressed, especially The Good Wife. What started out as a good premise has morphed into a very compelling legal drama with a lingering subplot – exactly what did Alicia's husband do to warrant the wrath of the enemies that have put him in prison? It's also a terrific set of actors and a star-turn by Julianna Margulies.

'Glee' Renewed for Second Season; Here's a Wish List for 5 More

by Adam Keleman, posted Jan 11th 2010 6:11PM
'Glee' is on a roll, and we're not just talking about the wheelchair-bound, soul-singing character Artie.

Monday morning Fox announced at the Television Critics Association confab that the sweetly buoyant TV phenomenon 'Glee' will return to Fox's 2010 fall line-up for an encore season. The adequately rated program about high school misfits who sing and dance their hearts out has struck a chord with the American public looking for something truly original in a TV landscape mostly filled with run-of-the-mill procedural and medical shows.

Golden Globes 2010: Best TV Drama Series Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 14th 2009 10:00AM
Don't expect a whole lot of drama in the race for Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes. It would surprise no one if last year's winner, 'Mad Men' (pictured, right) repeats as a nominee and even as the eventual winner. Last year's nominees all have a similarly good shot at being recognized again when the nominations are announced on Dec. 15.

The Front Runners: 'Dexter,' 'House,' 'In Treatment' and 'True Blood,' all nominated last year, have a strong likelihood of returning.

Golden Globes: Best TV Actor Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 12th 2009 3:00PM
Usually, the Golden Globes are a little more cutting-edge than the Emmys, a little quicker to recognize new talent on TV. When this year's nominations are announced on Dec. 15, however, you can expect a battle of Globe warhorses, as veterans will largely elbow newcomers out of the way in the struggle for each of the five slots in the Best Actor categories, drama and comedy.

BEST DRAMA ACTORS
Front Runners: 'Mad Men''s Jon Hamm (pictured, above right) and 'House''s Hugh Laurie have to be considered locks.

Christine Baranski Returning to 'The Big Bang Theory'

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 11th 2009 11:30AM
Christine Baranski and Kaley CuocoLaurie Metcalf made a return appearance earlier this season on 'The Big Bang Theroy' as Sheldon's mother. So, it's only fitting that Leonard's mother will be returning to the show as well.

The Ausiello Files
is reporting that Christine Baranski has agreed to bring back her Emmy-nominated role as Leonard's uptight mother, Dr. Beverly Hofstadter. Luckily, Baranski's regular gig on 'The Good Wife' is a fellow CBS series, so it wasn't a challenge to fit her 'Big Bang' guest spot into her schedule.

The first time she appeared, there was some delightfully awkward tension between her and Sheldon. Some would argue and call it sexual tension, but we're not sure that Sheldon is even a sexual creature. With his own mother (Metcalfe) so decidedly non-intellectual, we think he was just thrilled to have a mother-figure he could mentally spar with.

TV Shows Most Likely to Be Canceled: We Made the Odds, Now Place Your Bets

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:11PM

It seems like just yesterday we were greeting the lineup of the 2009-2010 television season; every show was equal, and no show had a better chance at success than any other. What a difference a few weeks make, as now some series are already looking down the barrel of a shotgun, ready to be canceled with barely a few episodes out the gate. Television is a cutthroat world indeed -- here we look at the series that are currently on thin ice, and the odds that they'll come out the other side.

Don't agree with our odds? Let us know!

ABC:

'Ugly Betty'
It wasn't long ago that 'Ugly Betty' had its supporters in droves, proclaiming its brilliance to the heavens. Now, alas, the show seems to have been abandoned, allegedly returning this season only so it has enough episodes in the vault to qualify for syndication. Which it does, so there!
Odds of Cancellation: 2 to 1

CBS wants more of The Good Wife and NCIS: LA

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 8th 2009 5:02PM
The Good WifeCBS must be pretty happy. They've been dominating the television landscape for the past several years. And their spin-offs policy continues to work very well. In it's premiere week, not only was NCIS: LA the top-rated new show of the season, but it pushed its parent series all the way to number one on the week, achieving its highest ratings, too.

Those strong ratings have helped boost Julianna Margulies' The Good Wife to the top as well. As a show of thanks and support, CBS has ordered full-season pick-ups for both The Good Wife and NCIS: LA. As much as I complain about procedurals dominating the CBS landscape, people want to watch these shows. CBS does them better than anyone.

So that's one more night locked in and secured for CBS to dominate. If America ever does get tired of procedurals, though, they're in big trouble!

CBS Picks Up NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife

by Scott Harris, posted Oct 8th 2009 1:30PM
NCIS Los AngelesIn the least shocking news, well, maybe ever, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' was picked up by CBS for a full season.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, both the 'NCIS' spin-off and fellow freshman drama 'The Good Wife' have been extended after posting strong ratings. While there was some slippage last week, the two shows, which air back-to-back on Tuesday nights, have attracted more viewers than any other new series this fall and have helped the network dominate the night so far this season.

No, no, please, not a Criminal Minds spinoff

Oh, no. Please. CBS, please don't. I know it's tempting when you see the NCIS: LA ratings -- number two for last week, topped only by NCIS! -- but please, refrain. What am I talking about? CBS is pushing a spinoff of Criminal Minds, asking the show's executive producer Ed Bernero and executive producer Chris Mundy to come up with a variation on Criminal Minds. Hmm... Criminal Minds 2.0? Son of Criminal Minds? Criminal Guts?
