The Good Wife
Whether it's thanks to his three best-selling memoirs or his research foundation, Michael J. Fox is known around the world for his activism for Parkinson's Disease following his diagnosis in 1991. But he's never played a character with the same illness -- until now.
On Tuesday's episode of The Good Wife, Fox will guest-star as Alicia's newest opponent, Louis Canning, a lawyer for a pharmaceutical company who uses his Parkinson's Disease to his advantage in the courtroom. The 49-year-old actor has played characters with...
House (Monday, 8/7c, Fox)
While Thirteen's away, House's team must play nice with Cuddy, agreeing to add a female doctor to fill the void. Enter Joan of Arcadia's Amber Tamblyn as Martha Masters, a third-year med student who can hold her own against these strong personalities. Even the mercurial boss man. She gets a chance to prove herself in the case of a senator's campaign manager who collapses, mid-campaign, with liver failure and temporary paralysis.
Conan (Premieres Monday, 11/10c, TBS)
Like a red-maned phoenix rising from the ashes of last winter's peacock debacle, Conan O'Brien is finally back plying his wacky mad comedy skills in late night — with Andy Richter in tow and The Basic Cable Band (led by...
Kiefer Sutherland will make his Broadway debut in That Championship Season, Playbill reports.

What's up with Paul's creepy wife on Desperate Housewives? — Cassidy
MICKEY: It's clear after Sunday's episode that Beth's mom really wants her to remain married to Paul. (Why is another question.) She even ordered her daughter to sleep with him, which is kind of creepy. Once she does, though, we'll get a very different perspective on the self-proclaimed virgin.
Dexter is getting good. Can you tease what's ahead? — Alex
ADAM: Now that Lumen's abductors know she's still alive, the guilty parties will look to destroy the evidence of their crimes — namely those barrels of bodies in the swamp. That task is made slightly more difficult when...
Ana Gasteyer is trying her very best to be scary.
On the set of Chuck last month, she has her hair tied back tightly in a bun and is sporting multiple scars on her face and neck. But the Saturday Night Live alum still has her funny bone intact.
"Theoretically, I've been through a lot. My personal character journal would reflect...

Question: I am loving Raising Hope, but I'm wondering if there will be any back story on Virginia's and Bert's families, other than Maw Maw, of course. Have you heard if they have parents and siblings? I think there has been mention of other relatives who want Maw Maw's house, but do you know if we will get to meet them? I think it would be a hoot to see the rest of the families on both sides! — Ginni
The Good Wife
The cast of The Good Wife has Shakespeare on the brain. Granted, the playwright may not seem like an obvious influence on the hit CBS drama, which deals with such thoroughly modern issues as the destructive power of media and the Internet. But as the show charges through its sophomore season, it's exhibiting many of his hallmarks, complete with star-crossed lovers and a purloined letter. (Or make that voice mail.)
It took a baseball bat and a whole lot of sexual tension, but viewers finally got to see Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi) come undone on last week's episode of The Good Wife.
After weeks of playing cat and mouse with the firm's new investigator, Blake (Scott Porter), Kalinda sent a clear message by smashing in his car windows and sealing the wreck with a kiss. What followed between the two was one of the season's hottest confrontations yet.
"We were not given any direction for that...
Mad Men, The Good Wife
In the pursuit of TV love, our favorite characters employed some really weird tactics this week. On Boardwalk Empire, Margaret got Nucky's attention by dropping a dime on him. Crosby proposed with a plastic novelty ring while wearing a tacky jumpsuit on Parenthood. House's cranky doc even agreed to — gasp! — babysit. Don Draper's impromptu proposal on Mad Men's finale caught us off guard. But it's Kalinda and Blake's destructive flirtation on The Good Wife that perhaps most eloquently underscored that love may be a many-splendored thing, but there's nothing hotter than taking a baseball bat to your intended's automobile. Welcome to Top Moments: Love Is Strange Edition.
On this week's episode of The Good Wife, Alicia faces disbarment after her deposition with Glenn Childs is leaked. Plus, the race for the state attorney's office takes an interesting turn when a surprise third candidate is revealed.
When It All Falls Apart
My absolute favorite part of the evening was the big confrontation between Kalinda and Blake. It's been a few episodes coming, but it was well worth the wait. After Alicia...
