Sure, everyone knows that Thanksgiving is this week. But fans of The Good Wife have another reason to be thankful aside from the requisite turkey and stuffing coming to a dinner table near you. This Sunday marks the drama's 100th episode (9/8c, CBS), and boy, does the show deliver. Already in the middle of an acclaimed, high-octane season, the 100th episode includes the return of several fan-favorite guest stars, a suspenseful (and very personal!) legal case, some juicy new...
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...

Imagine professing your love to someone only to learn that they don't feel the same — and you still have to see them on a daily basis!
That's exactly how Emily Owens, M.D.'s titular character will feel now after telling Will (Justin Hartley) that she has feelings for him and being shot down. So how will Emily (Mamie Gummer) act around him now? Check out this very awkward exclusive video below to find out:
How many times have you heard that while watching a medical show? Now meet The CW's Emily Owens, M.D. (9/8c), who's such a magically giddy sprite of a surgical intern she can actually "Clear!" a room, just by showing up. My living room, anyway. Or any room in which she might suddenly appear, babbling in gratingly incessant voice-overs that make Meredith Grey seem a model of restraint. A more toxically cutesy, aggravatingly precious, aren't-I-adorable waste of talent would be hard to imagine.

From the moment Emily Owens, M.D. begins, one thought will surely cross your mind: This feels very familiar.
That's because The CW's new medical dramedy is pretty similar to ABC's stalwart Grey's Anatomy — from the titular protagonists' names to the voiceovers and even the characters, the tone of Shonda Rhimes' medical drama is present.
Emily Owens stars Mamie Gummer (The Good Wife, Off the Map) as a first-year intern who, while working alongside her best friend/crush (Justin Hartley) and her childhood nemesis (Aja Naomi King), must learn the hard way that hospitals are a lot like high school.

Why is it that whenever I see a new CW series that piques my interest, I can't help thinking it looks like something from the classic WB playbook.
