Ask Matt: Glee, Good Wife, Person of Interest, Emmys and Law & Order

Lea Michele

Question: I am really disappointed that Glee is returning to McKinley and that they are adding more characters to fill out their already shortened final season. The last few seasons of Glee have been less than stellar, but the last handful of episodes set in New York were awesome. Give me New York and throw McKinley away for good. Even with the cliché that was Rachel going from student to Broadway star to TV star almost overnight, I enjoyed watching the more adult struggles of these characters. Now I feel betrayed, like someone dangled the proverbial carrot and then took it away. With 12 episodes left, I want them to focus on the original glee-clubbers following their dreams into the adult world. Sigh. Is this a thing with Ryan Murphy, where his shows start strong for a few seasons and then implode at the end? I hated the last few seasons of Nip/Tuck. — Olivia

7 Things to Expect From Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.’s Explosive Crossover Event

David Eigenberg, Christian Stolte

Law & Order and its many spin-offs have long been known for ripping from the headlines, whether it was the flagship series' fictionalized version of Mel Gibson's anti-Semitic rant or SVU's take on the Trayvon Martin murder. It was only a matter of time before Dick Wolf's newest series, Chicago Fire and  Chicago P.D., followed suit. In a special two-part crossover airing on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10/9c on NBC, the shows will ... read more

Chicago P.D. is sending one of its own into the trenches of the Big Apple.

SVU Says Goodbye to Capt. Cragen: Will Olivia Be Put in Charge?

Dann Florek

Longtime Law & Order: SVU castmember Dann Florek had one stipulation when discussing his exit from the series with showrunner Warren Leight.

"Dann said, 'I don't like parties. I don't want a party,'" Leight tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "But he does have a nice 'farewell to the troops' moment in this episode."

On Wednesday's episode (9/8c, NBC), Capt. Cragen will retire from the force after 15 seasons of SVU and three seasons on the original flagship series — all of which makes him the longest-running character in Law & Order history. "We set this thing in motion where, for the first time ever, he had a hint of a social life," Leight said in reference to... read more

Wednesday Review: Crime (Melo)Drama on SVU, Chicago PD

Jon Seda, Jason Beghe

The original Law & Order seems like such a distant, and classy, memory these days. Dick Wolf's mini-empire within NBC now runs on a higher octane of lurid overkill. While Chicago Fire is a harmless enough, though largely forgettable, soap about telegenic first responders, its no-brainer (and brainless) spinoff, Chicago PD, is the most arrogantly conceived display of bare-knuckled hooey since the mercifully short-lived Ironside reboot, which polluted the same Wednesday 10/9c time period last fall.

Chicago P.D. Promises to be a "More Aggressive" Crime Show Thanks to an Unlikely Leader

Chicago P.D.

Coming from the man behind the long-running Law & Order franchise — which has spawned four spin-offs since the mothership's 1990 debut — it should come as no surprise that the Dick Wolf-produced Chicago Fire would meet a similar fate. However, showrunner Matt Olmstead admits he didn't see it coming.

"It's funny," he tells TVGuide.com. "If we would have started out thinking that we were going to spin off Jason Beghe's character into a show, we probably wouldn't have... read more
