The Good Wife
You might say a love affair that kicks into high gear with a steamy embrace in an elevator is predestined to have its share of ups and downs. And sure enough, as external pressures start to close in on The Good Wife's Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and Will Gardner (Josh Charles), their clandestine courtship is in for a very bumpy ride.
After two seasons of anticipation, Willicia supporters — as opposed to those who continue rooting for a reunion of Alicia and her estranged philandering politician hubby Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) — are finally being rewarded for their patience with a passionate payoff each week. The once dutiful spouse at the center of the drama has been transformed into a woman who giggles(!) and says yes to lunchtime lust with her fellow lawyer — but there's still plenty working against the fledgling couple.

The Good Wife viewers are about to see a part of Eli that some probably never even knew he had — a soft side. "In this episode, we find out that there is something very shocking that happened when Eli was married," Alan Cumming tells TVGuide.com. "So you see Eli very, very vulnerable for the first time ever."
Why? The arrival of Eli's ex-wife, Vanessa, played by Parker Posey, has a lot to do with it. It's no coincidence that the two actors have shared the screen several times before (most memorably in The Anniversary Party and Josie and the Pussycats) and Cumming immediately suggested...

Question: I have watched All My Children and One Life to Live for 40 years. I watch GMA and stay with ABC just waiting for them to come on to see what has happened. They are an escape from reality with spice, and ABC wants to give us more reality? There are mannnnny other stations for that. If ABC cancels my soaps, I will not watch them ever again any time of the day or night. AMC and OLTL are icons. Regis retires in November and Kelly understands. AMC and OLTL are a part of our lives and our friends. This is a wrong choice that ABC needs to reconsider or I'll be watching The Early Show, Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Gunsmoke and Walker Texas Ranger, not reality. Oprah's leaving. Put the new shows there, or move the soaps around, just do not cancel them. 40 years of loyalty cuts deep and never heals. Why did they move AMC to LA and hire the veteran head writer just to cancel? Someone's thinking is screwed up. — Mary Alice
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Spoiler alert: The following reveals major plot points from Tuesday's episode of The Good Wife.
Alicia (Julianna Margulies) thought she had bad timing last season on The Good Wife, but things went from bad to worse on Tuesday's episode.
Just as Alicia — and the rest of Cook County — learned that Peter (Chris Noth) had officially won his old job back as state's attorney and...
Alan Cumming has a clone. What other explanation is there, really, for how he can simultaneously play an integral part on The Good Wife, travel the world with a cabaret act, star in movies and stage productions, host PBS' Masterpiece Mystery! — oh, and do enough charitable work to be honored by the U.K. with an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) citation. "I like to stay busy, try different things, mix and match," acknowledges the exuberant Scottish actor. "I'm quite good at multitasking!"
The clone theory works for Robert and Michelle King, the married cocreators of the sophisticated, deeply satisfying sophomore CBS drama about love, law and politics in Chicago.
Ratings behemoths NCIS and American Idol went head to head — and Idol won. And the self-proclaimed biggest "winner" of all, Charlie Sheen, helped ABC win a lot more viewers than usual.

The CBS procedural attracted 19.2 million viewers (the low end of its range), while a 90-minute edition of the Fox network's singing competition — in which the top 12 male semifinalists performed — lured nearly 21.3 million. Idol's rating among 18-to-49-year-olds declined ...

Cheers to The Good Wife because, to put it in Facebook parlance, "it's complicated."
