You mean there was a game on this week?
While TV history was made with the Super Bowl becoming once again the most-watched program ever — my thoughts on the game, the ads, the Glee episode can be found here — it was a pretty super week of February sweeps madness on all fronts. Some significant new shows arrived, including Fox's terrific The Chicago Code (read my review) and ABC's not-quite-there-yet Mr. Sunshine (my review also includes comments on the return of Justified and the farewell of Friday Night Lights).
OK, NCIS can't set a series high every week. Still, the CBS procedural nabbed 20.3 million viewers Tuesday night.

Cheers to The Good Wife for rounding up an impressively diverse roster of guest stars.

This week's stellar episode, "Real Deal," marked the return of guaranteed Emmy nominee Michael J. Fox as Louis Canning, a canny lawyer who exploits his own disability to win sympathy. His encore was subtler and more intriguing, as his motivation for competing (then unwillingly collaborating) with Lockhart Gardner on a class-action lawsuit wasn't clear. Was he still a corporate shill or had he suddenly grown a heart? The resolution was refreshingly nuanced for a network drama—and left the door open for Fox to come back.
But the former Alex P. Keaton was just the biggest name in a long list of gifted actors who graced the hour...

The Chicago Code (Monday, 9/8c, Fox)
Perking up what has been a pretty dismal midseason so far, this tough, brisk police drama from The Shield's Shawn Ryan is set and filmed in Chicago, where the city's brash first female police superintendent (Jennifer Beals, cast against type) clashes with a corrupt alderman (Delroy Lindo, savoring his smooth villainy) who holds her department's purse strings. Colvin's eyes and ears on the mean streets is reckless local-legend detective Jarek Wysocki (Brotherhood's Jason Clarke), who's just been saddled with a young, earnest partner (Friday Night Lights' Matt Lauria) who's not as green as he looks. The show weaves each of their points-of-view into a compelling, muscular narrative. Please watch...
Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls alum Krysten Ritter has signed on to star in ABC's comedy pilot, Don't Trust the Bi--- in Apartment 23, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Ritter will play Chloe, a New York City party girl who makes life miserable for her new Midwestern roommate....
This was a week where history played out before our eyes, with revolution in Egypt catching journalists — including several of TV's biggest news stars (Anderson Cooper, Christiane Amanpour among others) — in the dangerous crossfire. Another colossal winter storm cutting a swath of snowy and icy peril across the country kept millions glued to the Weather Channel (if the elements didn't knock out your cable). And Charlie Sheen's epic real-time E True Hollywood Story continues, shutting down TV's most popular sitcom and challenging Hollywood's priorities in the process.
But hey, what else was on?

HUZZAH! The greatest compliment you can pay any TV show is to want to watch it again the second it's over. And once the February sweeps calms down, that's my plan with this week's delightfully inventive instant-classic episode of...
The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kourtney and Kim Take New York
Our top moments of the week:
14. Best Kiss: We've seen plenty of shirtless Stefan Salvatore shots on The Vampire Diaries, so it was about time we got not one, but two Damon shower scenes. At the end of the episode, Damon soaks in a bubble bath with his new lady Andie. In true vampire fashion, Damon grabs her for an intense kiss, and then nibbles on her neck until we see blood drip down her soaking wet back.
13. Biggest Loser and Gainer: We get that The Biggest Loser is not the best way for everyone to lose weight. But...
NCIS - Mark Harmon
Better a late bloomer than no bloomers at all. NCIS proves that.
