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

Hostages

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

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

A Day Out With The Talk's Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen

On paper, Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne — the queen bees of CBS' girly gabfest The Talk — couldn't be more different. Chen, a pedigreed journalist, spent years rising up the ranks at The Early Show and hosting Big Brother. Osbourne, meanwhile, has passed the last decade-plus morphing from music manager to reality-TV pioneer and variety-show judge. (Heck, even their husbands are practically from different planets: Chen is married to Leslie Moonves, the power-suited president and CEO of CBS; Osbourne has a 30-year union with rock icon Ozzy.) And yet... read more

CBS Mocks ABC by "Developing" Fake Dancing on the Stars Series

After a judge denied CBS' request to prevent the airing of ABC's new reality program The Glass House -- which CBS believes to be a direct rip-off of its long-running hit Big Brother -- the network fired back Wednesday with a mock press release announcing the development of a new show called Dancing on the Stars, a blatant play on ABC's hit competition series Dancing with the Stars.

Premise: The lives of disparate housemates are captured on-camera 24/7 over a three-month period, with one person getting the boot every week (originally it was every two weeks). The last to leave wins $500,000. The intrusive Orwellian premise drew its share of critical barbs, but the series was popular enough to spawn a number of sequels.
