Michael J. Fox, Matt Czuchry and Julianna Margulies
The gloves come off in a sensational finale to an incredible season of CBS's The Good Wife (Sunday, 9/8c), one of the best and hands down the most purely entertaining drama series anywhere on TV. The intrigue is riveting as rival law firms (Florrick/Agos, Lockhart/Gardner) go for broke, using any means necessary — including possibly illegal electronic eavesdropping — to get the advantage on the other in what now seems a fight to the death. Partners battle partners between and within both teams, and when Christine Baranski (the embattled Diane) faces off with Michael J. Fox (ruthless interloper Louis Canning) for control of the firm she built with the late Will Gardner, the fireworks are as awesome as the surprising fallout.
This week, Epic Rap Battles of History pitted Breaking Bad's Walter White against The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes, and Funny or Die imagined what Donald Sterling's inner monologue may be. In Game of Thrones parody news, Tyrion's speech got an alternate ending, and the entire show got the Law & Order treatment. Oh, and in case you haven't heard, Solange Knowles attacked her brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator while Beyonce looked on!

Charlize Theron returned to Saturday Night Live for the first time since hosting in 2000, and it was ... unremarkable.
The episode didn't get off to a great start as the actress, who stars in Seth MacFarlane's upcoming film A Million Ways to Die in the West, delivered a rather mediocre opening monologue. But the episode wasn't all bad, and wrapped up with a very funny pre-recorded sketch about the typical tourists found in New York.

This week, Person of Interest star Michael Emerson set out to prove that he isn't always dark and intense, while CollegeHumor compiled a 24 video proving that Jack Bauer ... well, is almost always dark and intense. Full House was reimagined as a horror movie, and Saturday Night Live filmed a sketch with Andrew Garfield paying tribute to '90s sitcoms (but was forced to cut it from the broadcast). New judges Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams made their debuts on The Voice (sort of) by performing Stefani's hit "Hollaback Girl." And Sally Field destroyed Julia Roberts in a "Curse-Off" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Is Crisis in crisis?
NBC has pulled the hostage drama starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney from its schedule on May 18, the last Sunday of May sweeps. Believe has also been removed from that Sunday's lineup. Instead, NBC will air a two-hour "Women of Saturday Night Live" special starting at 9/8c.
Leslie Jones, Colin Jost
Saturday Night Live is never shy about taking on taboo topics, but this weekend's episode, which featured a bit making jokes about slavery, has caused quite an Internet stir.
On Saturday's "Weekend Update" segment, writer Leslie Jones made her on-screen debut in a bit about being single. Jones then talked about slavery, saying, "Back in the slave days, I would've never been single. I'm 6 feet tall and I'm strong!" She then continued by saying, "I do not want to be a slave. I don't like working for you white people now, and ya'll pay me. I'm just saying back in the slave days, my love life would've been way better. Master would've hooked me up with the best brother on the plantation."

Oh, snap! After 25 seasons, Fox's The Simpsons can still seem as fresh and inventive as when we first met this merrily mutant family — especially when the show raises its game as it does for this weekend's milestone 550th (!) episode (Sunday, 8/7c), a fantastical collaboration with LEGO in which all the elements of visuals, story and jokes click into place with spectacular results.
