Weekend TV: Good Wife, Midwife, Walking Dead and Helix Finales

Julianna Margulies, Alan Cumming

In a sudden, shocking (and heaven be praised, unspoiled) twist, this tremendous fifth season of CBS's The Good Wife has shifted from the dueling-firms spectacle of Alicia-vs-Will to the gut-wrenching reality of Alicia — and everyone else in her universe — grieving Will. Her former lover and boss-turned-rival (a succulent role for Josh Charles, who will be terribly missed) was the victim of a courtroom shooting, which in a savage irony was perpetrated by the vulnerable young client (Hunter Parrish) Will was busily defending. Will died doing what he loved best, you might say with his boots on — although one of his shoes was blown off in the violent melee — and now it's time to mourn.

Saturday Night Live: Girls Star Lena Dunham Gets Naked

Lena Dunham

Girls star Lena Dunham made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut Saturday, but she wasn't the only celebrity guest to stop by. Liam Neeson, Jon Hamm and former cast member Fred Armisen also made cameos in what was overall a mediocre episode.

Louis C.K. to host SNL

Dunham predictably addressed the rampant nudity and graphic sex in Girls, both in her so-so monologue and in a hilarious parody of the Garden of Eden story. Did anyone honestly think Dunham could get through the entire episode without showing some skin? This hilarious trailer for "Girl," a new movie about Adam and Eve, features great impersonations of Dunham's co-stars Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet by Taran Killam and Vanessa Bayer. Take a look:

Weekend TV Review: Bountiful, Resurrection, Cosmos

Cicely Tyson

Just try telling Carrie Watts that you can't go home again. This elderly Texan, determined to make her way back to a town that time and everyone but she has forgot, bristles with restless gumption, fueled by an indomitable spirit that erupts in hymns she can't stop humming — or singing, as in a memorable scene set in a deserted bus station after midnight.

On Broadway, where Cicely Tyson won a Tony Award last year for her luminous performance as Carrie in a revival of The Trip to Bountiful, audiences often joined in as she sang "Blessed Assurance" in the play's rapturous high point. And for a moment, in Lifetime's languid movie adaptation (Saturday, 8/7c), you might find your own living room transformed into a choir loft.

Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon

Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon used to share a desk for SNL's "Weekend Update," but on Monday's Tonight Show the pair shared mouths.

It all started when Fey gave voice to our dreams, telling Fallon she wanted to shake things up: "You're doing a pretty good job, but I would also like to interview me." Fallon didn't hesitate before granting Fey's wish, launching into a "Lip Flip" bit, in which the duo's mouths are imposed on each other's faces.
