Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles
It's been a busy — and heart-wrenching — couple of weeks on The Good Wife.
Moments after becoming Mrs. State's Attorney, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) learned about Peter's one-night-stand with Kalinda (err, Leila) and kicked him out. Last week, she drew enemy lines against Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) after two years of friendship. In the midst of the blow-ups, the tears and the divorce talk, has a chance for Alicia and Will (Josh Charles) to be together finally emerged?
"The nature of what's transpired with Alicia and Peter, Alicia and Kalinda — these things push Alicia and Will closer together as friends," Charles tells TVGuide.com. "I think — at its core — there is a deep love...
NCIS: LA, Claire Forlani
Castle (Monday, 10/9c, ABC)
This week is a smorgasbord of season (and in some cases, possibly series) finales, and Monday is overstuffed with them, including CBS's comedies, a Chuck wedding on NBC, a 90210 graduation on the CW, and a showdown with the legendary villain Wo Fat capping the first season of Hawaii Five-0. But the nicest surprise of this spring has been the resurgence of ABC's comedic crime procedural Castle, which wraps its season by returning to the ongoing mystery surrounding the murder of Kate Beckett's mother. When hitman Hal Lockwood (Max Martini) escapes from...
Curb Your Enthusiasm
It's been a year and a half since HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm signed off with a Seinfeld reunion. Now, with Season 8 finally premiering July 10, star and creator Larry David is saluting another beloved series from NBC's classic Thursday-night lineup, landing guest appearances from two Family Ties faves...

16. Most Self-Aware Reality-Show Judge: Showing she does have a sense of humor about herself, Christina Aguilera injects a little levity into a coaching session with battle-round opponents Frenchie Davis and Tarralyn Ramsey on The Voice. "Don't worry about the words! I never worry about the words!" she laughs, referring to her National Anthem debacle. Can't wait to hear what she has to say about her night behind bars...
Vicci Martinez, Carson Daly, Nikki Dawson
The Voice faltered somewhat but still posted solid numbers in prime time's final hour, pulling in 10.29 million viewers and more 18-to-49-year-olds than its two competitors combined.
Cheers to Sarah Silverman for acquitting herself well on The Good Wife.

The outrageous comic played it straight — well, for her anyway — as the owner of an adulterous dating website who became a suspect in the murder of one of her clients. Silverman held her own in dramatic scenes opposite the formidable Julianna Margulies, as her character's non-monogamous philosophy caused Alicia to ponder her extra-marital attraction to law-firm colleague Will Gardner (Josh Charles).
First, she took care of Peter (with help from some very tough packing tape). Then, on Tuesday's episode of The Good Wife, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) dealt with the other woman, and her former best friend, Kalinda (Archie Panjabi). But will she ever be able to...
Glee (Tuesday, 8/7c, Fox)
Don't expect a firestorm like in the classic Carrie, but the battle for prom queen and king intensifies as our singing heroes provide musical background for the school dance. In other musical news Tuesday night, NBC's new hit...
Patricia Heaton, The Middle
In honor of Mother's Day, let's start there. I've already penned a tribute to the mighty Mags Bennett of FX's Justified, a poison-packing mountain mama fiercely and fatally devoted to her degenerate brood, as we saw in this week's fabulous finale. Brava, Margo Martindale. But that same Wednesday night, another Midwestern mom — The Middle's Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton) from Orson, IN — gave us a pungently funny reminder of why our moms deserve a big hug every day...

15. You Can't Handle the Truth Award: After Dustin's past in the gay porn industry is revealed on The Real World, his girlfriend reacts in a completely predictable and healthy way: by shoving her tongue down the throat of her female roommate, Nany, in front of everyone. Either this is her weird ...
