Ask Matt: Good Wife, Parenthood, Gotham, Murder, Castle, Scorpion, Forever and More

Matt Czuchry

Question: Just when I thought The Good Wife couldn't top Season 5, Season 6 is off to a humdinger of a start! I certainly didn't see Cary's arrest coming, and I can't wait to find out what they have in store for us next. Matt Czuchry is terrific, and I'm thrilled he's getting this opportunity for a meaty storyline. As opposed to a show such as The Vampire Diaries, which tore through so much plot I stopped caring (no one stays dead, so where are the stakes?), The Good Wife earns its twists and turns, and only gets better with each game-changer. I've thoroughly enjoyed it from the get-go, but in the last year, it has vaulted to the top of my can't-miss shows. As we all know, many programs decline after the first few seasons and limp to the finish line. NCIS became a big hit a few years into its run, but I'm not sure it grew creatively. (That's not a slight — I don't watch it, so I genuinely don't know.) I can't think of another show that has risen to such glorious new artistic heights in Season 5 and onward the way The Good Wife has. Can you? — Keira

NCIS: Los Angeles Promises More Action and Romance in Season 6

LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell

LL Cool J may have participated in CBS's salute to the ­Beatles earlier this year, but he certainly won't be ­singing "We all live in a yellow submarine" when his Sam and Chris O'Donnell's Callen find themselves trapped in a ­hostile submersible as NCIS: Los Angeles opens its sixth ­season. Last May's cliffhanger found the partners taking an... read more

Lifetime Renews Devious Maids for a Third Season

Roselyn Sánchez, Ana Ortiz and Dania Ramirez

After a down-to-the-wire negotiation, Lifetime has sealed a deal to bring back the Marc Cherry-produced soap Devious Maids for a third season.

Lifetime picked up 13 new episodes to air sometime in 2015. "Marc Cherry has created a uniquely twisted world that blends his... read more

Will Revenge's Fourth Season Be Its Last?

Emily VanCamp

If Emily VanCamp gets her way, this will be one helluva final season for ABC's Revenge. Actually, the actress would have even been satisfied had last May's jaw-dropping finale spelled the end of her vengeful character Emily Thorne's (aka Amanda Clarke) three-year takedown of the conspirators she blamed for her father's false imprisonment and death. In the season ender, Emily's... read more

First Look: Paul Reubens Is Definitely Not Pee-Wee Herman on NBC's The Blacklist

Paul Reubens

Paul Reubens — the actor sometimes known as Pee-Wee Herman — joins NBC's The Blacklist for at least two episodes next month, and TV Guide Magazine has the first look at his character.

Reubens plays Mr. Vargas, a mysterious fixer for the underground criminal world. He first appears in the episode "Dr. Linus Creel," which airs on Monday, Oct. 6 at 10/9c. In the episode, Red (James Spader) warns Liz (Megan Boone) that a social-psychological experiment may be behind a series of killings at the hands of seemingly nonviolent people.

Weekend TV: Amazon's Brilliant Transparent, Simpsons Death and Family Guy Crossover

Jeffrey Tambor

Mort Pfefferman's entire life has been an identity crisis. A divorced dad of three grown, though not always grown-up, children, melancholy Mort is truly at ease only when in the heretofore secret guise of his feminine alter ego, Maura. In a flashback from 20 years earlier, Maura laments, "No one's ever seen me except me" — a situation that's about to change as the funky younger Pfeffermans slowly get to know the truth about their trans parent in Amazon's Transparent (get it?), creator Jill Soloway's deeply felt, intensely human comedy. This series (available on Amazon Instant Prime starting Friday) should do for Amazon, reputation-wise, what House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black achieved for Netflix. It's at least their equal, with the feel and tone of... read more

Exclusive: A Big Brother-Palooza on The Bold and the Beautiful

Donny Thompson

He's not just "America's Favorite," he's also a soap star! Big Brother 16 contestant Donny Thompson wasn't named champ on last night's season finale of the CBS reality hit — he was evicted from the house weeks ago — but at the end of the show, the North Carolina groundskeeper did bag $25,000 in a viewer popularity poll.

Now he's off to the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful, where he'll appear in scenes on Oct. 30-31 with Emmy winner Scott Clifton (Liam) and Aussie beauty Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) that'll riff on the paranoia Donny caused on Big Brother — he was so humble and down-home nice that the other houseguests suspected he was really a genius doctor from Harvard or an undercover super soldier.

New Season Review: Going Along With Murder

Viola Davis

If Grey's Anatomy is an oversexed St. Elsewhere, and Scandal a frenzied object lesson on how to put the woo-woo in The West Wing, then the latest Shondaland extravaganza, ABC's juicy legal melodrama How To Get Away With Murder (10/9c), is The Paper Chase on steroids. This instantly addictive thriller appears to have been written on... read more
