Just about the best news I heard all week: CBS's renewal of the splendid The Good Wife for a sixth season, among a ton of other pick-ups. If the month or more of special-Sunday distractions (Super Bowl, Olympics, Oscars) caused you to drift away, now's a great time for "Opting Back In." Which happens to be the name of a keynote speech Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is nervously preparing for the annual American Bar Association powwow in New York City — an occasion allowing for a terrific running gag involving new Mayor Bill De Blasio (Sunday, 9/8c).

NBC's midseason drama Crisis isn't necessarily a political thriller — but it does throw Washington's elite into a hostage situation.
The series stars Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney as parents whose children's school bus is taken hostage during a school field trip.
The X-Files creator Chris Carter has been laying low since the hit mythology series wrapped in 2002. But that's about to change: Carter is plotting a return to TV, starting with the Amazon pilot The After and another project in the works at AMC.
Baby, it's cold outside — especially if you're filming TV shows during the worst Chicago winter in nearly 20 years.
The polar vortex is making it a tough season across the U.S., but it's especially brutal in the Windy City, where in January temperatures averaged 15.1 degrees and 33.5 inches of snow fell (the city's third-highest total on record). "It's even taken the die-hard producers who live here by surprise," says Peter Jankowski, the president of Wolf Films, which makes NBC's Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. "When our fire consultants, who work for the department here, have to run inside between takes, you know it's cold."
How far would you go to save one of your family members? That's what NBC's new drama Crisis ventures to answer.
On the series — which stars Gillian Anderson, Dermot Mulroney and Rachael Taylor — Washington's most powerful players, including the president, find themselves blackmailed into an international conspiracy when...
Gillian Anderson, Fishlove campaign
X Files star Gillian Anderson is getting X-rated... with an eel?!

Is Crisis in crisis mode?
NBC's midseason drama starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney, has gone on an unplanned production hiatus, Deadline reports.
Gillian Anderson has become the American queen of British TV with powerful performances in such classics as Great Expectations and Bleak House. Season 1 of The Fall, her latest Brit hit, a highly praised contemporary crime thriller, has just been released on DVD by Acorn. The X Files star talks to TV Guide Magazine about the BBC show as well as her return to U.S. network television and a possible sci-fi project.

Question: What do you think about new shows that have a premise that seems unsustainable beyond one season? When Revenge was announced, it seemed like a good idea for a miniseries rather than a long-term program, and with the results we saw in the second season, that doesn't seem so far off. The new CBS show Hostages sounds interesting, but it doesn't seem like something you could continue beyond the initial 15-episode run without the writers coming up with convoluted ways to keep situations from being resolved or having it turn into a different show entirely. So I guess my question is: Do you think networks are getting desperate to have instant hits and aren't thinking about whether or not the show can last and still be good? — Mike
