"The path to the corner office is always sudden, and incestuous."
Those were Diane's words of wisdom to Alicia (Julianna Margulies) at the end of The Good Wife's second season. More than...
Julianna Margulies, Matt Czuchry
When The Good Wife first began, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) became a household name after being cheated on and publicly humiliated by her politician husband, Peter (Chris Noth).
Now in Season 5, Alicia will be the one betraying those closest to her. "It's going to be a completely different ball game," Margulies tells TVGuide.com. "There's going to be a lot of tension and a lot of friction and a lot of heartbreak. Diane and Will will end up feeling, when they find out, like she stabbed them in the back. And she...
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....

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...
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...
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...

Yes, Alicia (Julianna Margulies), you're kind of an idiot. Or at least the titular character on The Good Wife was kind of an idiot for..
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...
