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...

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...

The Voice not only held its high ratings note; it went up. The two-hour program averaged 12.38 million viewers and gave NBC its highest ratings in the time slot in nearly six years.
Ingela Ratledge and Matt Czuchry
Matt Czuchry doesn't like to lose. As Cary Agos — The Good Wife's deliciously multidimensional assistant state's attorney with a grudge — Czuchry (pronounced "zoo-cree") displays a fierce competitive streak. In person, the actor, 33, isn't much different — as he was only too happy to demonstrate over several merciless rounds of Skee-Ball at NYC arcade Dave & Buster's. What can we say? He's got game.
TV Guide Magazine: This season, viewers have seen a different side of Cary.
Czuchry: He's grown up quite a bit at the state's attorney's office. It's humbled him. Ambition is still at the root of who he is, but now we see more sincerity and vulnerability...

Question: I don't understand why more people are not watching Fringe. I admit Season 1 was a bit rocky, but Season 2 was great, and so far this season has been the best, in my opinion. It's the only show that seems to fill The X-Files void for me. Last Friday's "LSD" episode was brilliant. I still crack up every time I picture the "How wonderful!" thought bubble above cartoon Walter. And how hilarious was tripping Broyles? He's the only character I've never liked on the show, because he's so rigid, but it was nice to see him loosen up a bit. Too bad it took a bad trip of LSD to do it. Anyway, I know it was renewed for a fourth season despite the poor ratings, but do you think that will be the end? I mean, how can they afford to keep such a low-rated show around?
