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...
Audiences changed the way they consumed television — as well as what they watched — last year, making binge-watching a phenomenon and breathing new life into the TV movie and miniseries genres. What's in store for this year? Here are a few hot topics.
Will there be any more fallout from the Duck Dynasty controversy?
Holy smoke! Law & Order creator Dick Wolf's NBC drama Chicago Fire mixes buff bods, heroic action and — in a startling change from Wolf's previous procedurals — satisfyingly soapy storylines. This combo has helped make the sophomore series a hot date on Tuesday nights for more than 8 million viewers. "What we're doing here is the equivalent of big studio movies that have huge action sequences," says Wolf...

Question: Last Sunday's "Hitting the Fan" episode of The Good Wife lived up to the hype. It was a game changer, but I guess it left me feeling slimed. Alicia has always taken a righteous position and walked a fine ethical line. On Sunday, I feel like she fell off a cliff — not only was she a party to trying to download files which I'm not sure is illegal but certainly not ethical (notwithstanding the ends-justify-the-means argument), but she also seemed gleeful about Peter using his political position to her gain. As Will seemed so right to point out, she seems to have no idea how bad she has become. This is not the good wife that I have been watching. What were your thoughts? — Megan

At the end of Law & Order: SVU's 14th season, showrunner Warren Leight engaged in a very dangerous game of chicken with NBC.
"At the time, we didn't know if the show was coming back. So part of me thought, 'I dare NBC to cancel this show with the last episode ending with a gun pointing at...
Yolanda McClary and Kelly Siegler
There's a new crime-fighting duo coming to prime time this fall, but the cases they're investigating have been dormant for years and sometimes even decades.
On TNT's Cold Justice (premiering Tuesday at 10/9c), the latest endeavor from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, prosecutor Kelly Siegler and crime scene investigator Yolanda McClary team up to reopen unsolved small-town cases that have gone "cold" despite the best efforts of local law enforcement.
