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

NCIS (Tuesday, 5/14, 8/7c, CBS)
There are ghosts both literal and figurative in NCIS's finale, which brings back one character who was killed off two years ago and another who hasn't been seen for more than a decade.

It's one of the oldest adages in Hollywood: If at first you do succeed, try and try again... to replicate that hit. Just as the movie business remains entrenched in sequel mania (Scary Movie 5, anyone?), almost every broadcast network has a spinoff of a popular series in the works for next season.
ABC is looking to expand its Once Upon A Time universe with the Alice-centric Once: Wonderland. The CW is building The Originals around The Vampire Diaries baddie Klaus (Joseph Morgan). NBC will explore Chicago law enforcement in producer Dick Wolf's untitled Chicago Fire offshoot.

How long has the Justified fan waited for someone to ask this question to Boyd Crowder: "Where did you get all of those teeth?" You'll likely be grinning yourself, while cringing at the edge of your seat, as the pleasures just keep multiplying — a high-octane Justified highball of great banter, tremendous suspense, clever twists and reversals — in a harrowing, hilarious and fantastically entertaining episode, so eventful you might mistake it for a season finale, but thankfully there are still two more episodes to go (Tuesday, 10/9c, FX) in this terrific fourth season.
It has all been building to this violent showdown between the forces of good (the U.S. marshals) and evil (everyone else, from Boyd's crew to an army of thugs and snipers representing the Detroit mob). The target is Drew Thompson (the great Jim Beaver), a 30-year fugitive in sheriff's clothing, currently in the marshals' custody, although they feel like sitting ducks, outnumbered and outgunned in Harlan as they calculate several desperate escape maneuvers while awaiting rescue. The episode, written by exec producer Graham Yost and Chris Provenzano, is titled "Decoy," and revolves around a series of standoffs, confrontations and subterfuges that leave few unscathed and unbloodied. Special props to Patton Oswalt as the loyal and lovably resilient Constable Bob, who even Raylan has to admit is a "tough son-of-a-bitch" by the time the dust settles, following a tense encounter outside a (metaphorically apt) high-school principal's office.
Donald P. Bellisario
After NCIS creator Donald Bellisario revealed he has a serious brain condition, CBS now reportedly hopes to use his medical records against him during an upcoming trial, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In August 2011, Bellisario filed a lawsuit against CBS, seeking...
There's a new doctor in town.
Desperate Housewives' Steven Culp has landed a recurring role on Grey's Anatomy, Deadline reports. The actor will play "top dog" Dr. Parker on the ABC medical drama.
About as subtle as a Texas tornado, GCB storms onto ABC with hopes of delivering Sunday-best ratings. While Desperate Housewives limps into the sunset, this gaudy, bawdy send-up of gossipy Dallas church divas has a brash, giddy energy reminiscent of happier times on Wisteria Lane.
Tom Selleck and Will Estes, Blue Bloods
Blue Bloods' new executive producer, Ed Zuckerman, wants to make one thing clear to viewers: He's not messing with the formula that made the sophomore CBS drama a hit in its first year.

The veteran TV writer/producer was hired in May to replace outgoing creators Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess amid reports that CBS wanted to make the show more procedural. (Zuckerman's resume supported the theory: He served long stints on JAG and Law & Order.) However, Zuckerman insists nothing will change.
"The idea is to keep the show the same balanced show between a case of the week and the Reagan family issues and family drama," Zuckerman tells TVGuide.com....
