The Good Wife closed out its fourth season on a good note.
The drama drew 9 million viewers and a 1.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up a tenth from last week. Lead-out The Mentalist (8.7 million, 1.5) and lead-in The Amazing Race (9.1 million, 2.3) both dipped a tenth.

Question: I just read that Mike Kelley, the creator of Revenge, is leaving the show after this season. I will admit that this season isn't as good as the first, but it's OK. There are reports that Mike Kelley wanted shorter seasons, like on cable, with 13 episodes instead of the regular 22 moving forward. Since that wasn't going to happen, he left. What do you think? Do you think the show would work better with a shorter episode order? Also, if Kelley knew the show wouldn't work with longer seasons, why didn't he speak up the first season? Do you think someone else stepping in will freshen the show a bit? I will admit the time I started to take a step back and realize the writers were going too far was when they revealed Victoria had yet another child. Really?! Did you think the writers went overboard with that storyline in particular too? I also don't agree with the assertion that Scandal has replaced Revenge.

Talk about a spoiler alert. Fans of The Good Wife were shocked when — moments after Alicia (Julianna Margulies) accepted Peter's (Chris Noth) proposal to renew their vows in Hawaii — the preview for Sunday's season finale (9/8c on CBS) showed Alicia and Will (Josh Charles) making out in a car like a couple of teenagers. And though that scene answers the question of whether Alicia would act on her lingering feelings, there are still plenty of story lines up in the air going into Season 4's final hour. We take a closer look at the biggest burning questions...
In Sunday's brilliantly entertaining finale to another splendid season of CBS' The Good Wife — we choose to forget that Kalinda's ex ever existed — Denis O'Hare returns as a judge whose sciatica keeps him off the bench, pacing around the courtroom as he presides over a late-night emergency hearing over ballot-box irregularities in the next day's neck-and-neck election for Illinois governor. (Alicia's husband Peter is sweating every single vote.) Like Judge Abernathy, you may find it difficult to stay seated as this episode (9/8c), written by series creators Robert King (who also directed) and Michelle King, takes its many clever twists and turns, specializing in mischievous misdirection and game-changing surprises up to the very last jaw-dropping minute.
