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 end of The Good Wife's second season left a marriage and — more heartbreaking for fans — a close friendship in its wake as the revelation surfaced that Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) had once slept with Alicia's husband. But those fans still mourning the end of Alicia and Kalinda have a new twosome to watch out for: Kalinda and Eli Gold (Alan Cumming).
"I am as excited about Kalinda's relationship with Eli as I am devastated about her relationship with Alicia," Panjabi, who won an Emmy for her role last year and is nominated again this year, tells TVGuide.com.
"Here you've got two people who just instantly connect. They can read each other's minds and because of that, they're quite...

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.
Less than year after retiring her signature braces and colorful poncho to bid adieu to Ugly Betty, America Ferrera is back on television, trading in the love triangles, murder trials and Meade family drama for a story line closer to reality — and Ferrera's heart.
"I certainly didn't expect to jump into anything on TV that shortly after being off Betty," the Emmy-winning actress tells TVGuide.com of her guest stint on The Good Wife as graduate student and illegal alien Natalie. "For me, the appeal was just how [creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King] were really interested in addressing this topic and having the character set in the world of these hot-button issues of immigrants in this country. My heart is very close to...
