Julianna Margulies

Anthony Weiner might be feeling a little hot under the collar after his most recent headline-making scandal, but The Good Wife writers are reveling in his latest misconduct. "I think we're the happiest people writing right now because we have so much to write about," co-creator and executive producer Robert King told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Monday. "It's the gift that keeps on giving," star Julianna Margulies added. "We're starting Season 5 and it feels brand-new.... read more

7 Ways How The Good Wife Got Its Groove Back This Season

Julianna Margulies

Nick who? That's what fans of The Good Wife are — thankfully — asking after a recent string of strong episodes have erased the unpleasant first half of Season 4  from memory. In September, the legal drama (airing Sundays at 9/8c) suffered a rare critical misfire when it introduced Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) cold and abrasive estranged husband Nick (Marc Warren), who was not popular with the fans. No irreparable damage was done, but for a show that was regularly in critics' top 10 lists during its first three seasons, the negative attention was surprising. Producers caught on and quickly expunged Nick. Less than four months later, the show is stronger than ever. So how'd they do it? Here's seven ways... read more

The Good Wife Bosses on Alicia and Will, "War" at the Firm and Kalinda 2.0

The Good Wife

Breathe easy, Good Wife fans. The end of the show isn't near.  Just the end of Peter's gubernatorial campaign.

"We have every reason to anticipate we're coming back," co-creator and executive producer Michelle King told reporters on a conference call Monday. Added her husband, co-creator and executive producer Robert King, "We're writing as if we're coming back."

No one can blame fans of the CBS legal drama for being concerned. For all the show's critical acclaim and big-name guest stars, The Good Wife dipped to a series low 1.4 rating in the adults ages 18-49 demo on Feb. 17. The show bounced back to a 1.6 the following week, and the Kings said the ratings haven't been an issue with CBS. "They're very sophisticated in terms of how the ratings work," Michelle said. "They've never given anything but a positive response and they really focus on the creative and just... read more

Carrie Preston Adds "Cayenne Pepper" to The Good Wife as Fan-Favorite Elsbeth Tascioni

Carrie Preston and Alan Cumming

Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) sure does get around.

In the first season of The Good Wife, she not only helped the Florrick kids cover up Peter's (Chris Noth) brief (but illegal) house arrest breach, but she also got him acquitted. In Season 3, she came to Alicia's (Julianna Margulies) defense against the Treasury Department before helping prevent Will (Josh Charles) from being indicted. Now in Season 4 (Sundays at 9/8c on CBS), she's up to bat once again — this time to... read more

The Good Wife's Christine Baranski on Alicia’s Big Promotion: "The Stakes Have Gotten Higher"

The Good Wife

The "bitchy boss" is a cliché Christine Baranski has spent four years avoiding on The Good Wife. When the series premiered in 2009, many assumed Diane Lockhart would be a woman on top "threatened" by her news-making underling Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies). But instead, Diane has proven to be a stable and encouraging mentor.

So when things briefly — and masterfully — took a turn to the contentious in... read more

T.R. Knight Talks Returning to TV on The Good Wife

T.R. Knight

T.R. Knight hasn't been seen much since he left Grey's Anatomy in 2009. At the time, he cited "a breakdown of communication" with executive producer Shonda Rhimes over a slur by costar Isaiah Washington and what the actor perceived to be a diminished role on the show. With that drama behind him, Knight, 39, is back on screens big and small. Not only is he appearing in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 (hitting theaters this April), but he has also returned to TV in a big way with a multi-episode arc on The Good Wife, playing a hoodie-wearing political consultant... read more

How Sex-y Will Carrie Diaries Be? "We're Fighting For It," Showrunner Says

Austin Butler, AnnaSophia Robb

How will the CW's The Carrie Diaries, a prequel to a series based almost entirely on having and talking about sex, handle the topic in a way that both honors Sex and the City and follows the rules of network television?

Harris is OK taking her time.

Chris Noth is pumped for the upcoming election. "I love politics!" he crows a few weeks before the presidential showdown. But today he's talking about a fictional Democratic gubernatorial primary in the great state of Illinois — and it's a juicy one.
