Since Sunday September 21st is far too long to wait for the much-anticipated return of our favorite network drama, we thought fellow you might enjoy a first look at THE GOOD WIFE’s sixth season premiere. Ominiously titled “The Line,” Alicia is adamant in her refusal to run for State’s Attorney despite Eli’s attempts to persuade her to launch a campaign. Meanwhile, as Diane considers joining Florrick/Agos as partner, an internal crisis threatens to destroy the firm. [Read more...]
Further solidifying THE GOOD WIFE as one of the best cast shows on television, theTVaddict.com has just learned that FRASIER alum and multiple Emmy/Tony Award-winning actor David Hyde Pierce will guest on multiple episodes of THE GOOD WIFE during the show’s upcoming sixth season. Full press release below. [Read more...]
This just in, new episode photos and previews from the Sunday March 9th episode of ARROW. Direct from CBS, “Florrick/Agos and Lockhart/Gardner fight to keep Lemond Bishop as a client when he is arrested on a drug-related charge, which possibly resulted from a leak inside Alicia’s firm. Meanwhile, the investigation into voter fraud in the gubernatorial election continues to move forward when Marilyn is approached by an agent in the Office of Public Integrity, on THE GOOD WIFE.” [Read more...]
It’s that time of year when we’re grateful for a DVR and On-Demand. Seriously, how in the world did people keep up with all their favorites in the primitive days before those existed? And heck, a lot of our favorites — THE WALKING DEAD, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, etc — haven’t even returned yet! But let’s flip around the dial, talk about some of what we’re watching at the moment… [Read more...]
Perhaps there was no more heart-breaking moment on THE GOOD WIFE than in the 2nd season episode “Foreign Affairs” when Alicia (Julianna Margulies) found out that her estranged husband Peter (Chris Noth) had slept with her new best friend Kalinda (Archie Panjabi). We could just see the glass shattering around Alicia as her carefully constructed façade of control began to slip. With expediency that one can only marvel at, Alicia had the locks changed on her apartment, packed Peter’s things, and rented an apartment for him — all within hours of learning of his latest betrayal. Peter had betrayed her one last time and she was not going to take it anymore. [Read more...]
THE GOOD WIFE is CBS’ crown jewel drama. It’s a show that has garnered three Emmy nominations for Oustanding Drama (and should have been nominated last year too). Multiple series regulars have been nominated for Emmys and Julianna Margulies has won one for playing the titular character, Alicia Florrick. It’s also the prime destination for great actors to show up in guest starring roles. The only thing is, it’s not a big ratings hit. By CBS standards the numbers it currently gets would certainly get it cancelled at the end of this season. (On Tuesday the NCIS twins both got a 1.9 for reruns, while a new episode of The Good Wife on Sunday got a 1.5). That’s not gonna happen because CBS knows what kind of acclaim and prestige this show garners. Plus it brings people to CBS that don’t regularly watch other CBS dramas. CBS is in such good shape with the 20 plus million people who watch NCIS and THE BIG BANG THEORY [TBBT] regularly, that they can afford to have a lower rated, high income, prestige show on their schedule, especially one that many, including CBS themselves, love.

Just when you thought THE GOOD WIFE’s seemingly never-ending string of Emmy-worthy guest stars couldn’t get anymore, well Emmy-worthy, comes a first look at the show’s January 6th episode featuring a familiar face. And while star T.R. Knight checking into the show for the start of a multi-episode arc is good news for GREY’S ANATOMY fans, it’s not such a positive development for one Eli “Doesn’t Play Well With Others” Gold (Alan Cumming) who will be forced to work alongside Knight’s up-and-coming campaign strategist Jordan Karahalios on Peter Florrick’s campaign for Governor. See for yourself, after the jump. [Read more...]
Are you among the millions of Americans who find themselves increasingly anxious around the holidays due to the requisite family drama that comes with it? Well, consider the following: No matter what fireworks are served up with alongside that succulent Turkey this Thanksgiving, it will probably pale in comparison to that of the Florrick family reunion! Case in point, the November 25th Thanksgiving-themed episode of THE GOOD WIFE ominously titled “A Defense of Marriage” that promises sparks-a-plenty when Stockard Channing drops by as Alicia’s mother. More first look photos of which can be found after the jump. [Read more...]
What a difference a season makes. Last year, I was wildly intrigued by THE GOOD WIFE’s Kalinda and her mysterious background. Now that her abusive hubby is on the scene, I want them both to go away… or for her to at least drive a stiletto heel through his heart and get back to work. On the plus side, WIFE continues to turn the new frontier of electronic media into a breeding ground for fantastic lawsuits. This week’s story about the manipulation of search engine results was fascinating.
Every year, I say I’m not going to watch SURVIVOR, and every year, I do. Why? Because I’m drawn in by the fascinating dynamics that unfold when you put a group of diverse, interesting people into a stressful situation. Sadly, nobody told this cycle’s group of contestants that they were supposed to be interesting. If one of them doesn’t develop a personality soon, I’ll stop carrying a torch for this longtime favorite.
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the latest episdes of DEXTER or HOMELAND, skip this paragraph! Moving along in 3… 2… 1… When Deb found out the truth about DEXTER in the season finale, my jaw hit the floor and I eagerly anticipated the fallout. Unfortunately, what we’ve gotten so far this season has been pedantic at best. Deb’s reaction to finding out her brother is a serial killer was to basically ground him. The most interesting thing so far has been the rival between Dexter and his babysitter’s boyfriend… who has now been killed off. Similarly, the show’s timeslot companion, HOMELAND, went from a game-changing episode in which Saul found out the truth about Brody to this week’s overlong outting which went nowhere. Did anybody really think things would end well for Brody’s tailor pal? Yes, there were some great performances, but when a show does as few new episodes a year as this one, I don’t expect to waste an entire hour waiting for Saul to show Carrie the proof that she was right all along.

Should Booth and Brennan fans be worried that tonight’s episode revolves around a murder of a polarizing divorce attorney? — Francine
The TV Addict: Well, since Booth and Brennan aren’t actually married, fans don’t technically have anything to worry about! That said, the amount of time spent around bickering couples, sleazy divorce layers, not to mention a couple of corpses does bring certain issues for both Booth and Brennan bubbling to the surface. Particular Booth, who hasn’t quite forgiven himself for what happened to Brennan who herself is having trouble adapting to coupledom having spent three months on the lam. And, while we’re on the subject of those three months running from the law, BONES fans disappointed with last week’s somewhat lacklustre season premiere that put a swift end to a very contrived separation will be pleased to know that tonight’s follow-up episode is vastly improved thanks to some sharp dialogue and relatable issues between their favourite Foxy couple.
Any clues as to what Kalinda’s life will be like now that her much-talked about husband is back in town on THE GOOD WIFE? — Miranda
The TV Addict:To say that Kalinda fans are in for a real treat when THE GOOD WIFE kicks off its much anticipated fourth season may in fact be the understatement of the year. Not only does Kalinda get more time in the spotlight than ever before, her storyline with her husband (Marc Warren) has us wondering if THE GOOD WIFE writer’s room spent a little too much of their down time this past hiatus reading the likes of 50 Shades of Grey and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
This long suffering HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER fan could really use some encouragement: Should I even bother tuning into tonight’s season premiere? — Brandon
The TV Addict:Short answer: Yes, yes, and oh yes! Unfortunately the long answer is a slightly more complicated. So, to avoid giving away anything about tonight’s immensely enjoyable season opener, we’ll simply leave it at this: Those recording the show are going to want to make extra-sure that they’ve got those last few minutes covered! Also, serious kudos to co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas for perfectly working Marshall and Lily’s newborn baby into the fold. [Read more...]
