It's D-Day on The Good Wife Tuesday (CBS, 10 p.m. ET), when we'll finally learn who wins the law firm's junior associate 'bake off' - Julianna Margulies's Alicia or Matt Czuchry's Cary. From the promo (embedded after the jump), it's not hard to guess who plays a surprising role in the decision: Alan Cumming's Eli, the sharp-tongued, impeccably-dressed image consultant to Alicia's disgraced politician husband Peter (Chris Noth), who knows that Peter will need Alicia by his side if he's going to run again and win. (We won't spoil Eli's play, but after this episode, you'll understand how he becomes a regular in Season 2.) We recently caught up with Cumming as he was finishing a five-night engagement with his cabaret show in New York and preparing to fly to South Africa to shoot a limited-run British TV series, The Runaway, in which he stars as a transvestite named Desrae in 1960s London. That explains why we end up talking about his preferred method of hair removal. To Read More Click Here .

Before this season of The Good Wife concludes, we'll know for sure if Kalinda is a lesbian and, according to Josh Charles, we'll get 'a bit more' background on Will and Alicia's relationship at Georgetown. But that's looking too far ahead. The main focus of next week's new episode, "Mock," is on the conclusion of last week's episode; i.e. the fallout from Peter's decision to break his house arrest and set off his ankle monitor.

CBS' legal drama The Good Wife has been gaining much success since its premiere. But that accomplishment doesn't come without obstacles, especially when you're playing the lead role. Actress Julianna Margulies admitted that it's been a great run so far for her, even though there are roadbumps along the way. Talking to AOL TV, the Golden Globe Award-winning star revealed the difficulties she's encountered playing Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife. The challenge of her role is really what makes her enjoy it, which is why the fans just can't get enough of the series. Asked about the immediate positive response to the show, Margulies easily pointed out the concept of The Good Wife. "It's an adult show that doesn't condescend to its audience, and I think people really appreciate that," she explained. "The writing is just so good. I got a cable show; it just happens to be on network." But it's her portrayal of Alicia that won over audiences and critics. "Alicia is probably the hardest role I've ever played, because I wouldn't react the way she reacts to anything," Marguiles said. "She really knows how to rein it in and how to think before she acts." As it was mentioned before, things weren't always that easy; Julianna Margulies eventually just dealt with it. "Of course [I was] nervous, because I've never carried a show like that on my own. But I have such a good support team. I felt very taken care of. It's the answer to being able to be a mom and stay at home: a television show." That doesn't stop the actress from heading straight to the big screen though. The Good Wife star recently appeared on the film City Island and played another mom, Joyce Rizzo. It's been her favorite role so far, but we're betting Alicia Florrick comes close. Still, Juliana Margulies can't quite agree that she's similar to either character in real life. "I'm so not like either of them, honestly," she declared. "[...] I'm probably more like Joyce in just the way that I'm more reactionary and emotional. But dear Lord, if I was like Joyce, I wouldn't blame my husband. I don't think I'm much like either of them." Source here

This week, TV confused us. On Ugly Betty , little Justin kissed a girl... and a boy. Lost threw us for a loop by making bad-boy Sawyer a cop. American Idol 's Kara DioGuardi made us ask: Ignorance or just a really dry sense of humor? And the titular heroine of The Good Wife went bad, cheating on her cheating husband with her attentive boss. Welcome to Top Moments: Land of Confusion Edition. 13. Weirdest Love Triangle, Part I: On Ugly Betty , little Justin finds himself torn between two acting-class pals: sweet Lily and snarky Austin. When the trio gets together to watch DVDs, Lily asks: "Which Romeo + Juliet should we watch - Zefferelli or Luhrmann?" "Luhrmann," Justin and Austin reply in unison. Justin frets about kissing Lily during a scene, but in the end it's an impromptu peck from Austin that totally unnerves him. 12. Best Moment of Reckoning: In the premiere of HBO 's World War II epic, The Pacific , we watch as Marine Bob Leckie guns down hundreds of Japanese soldiers.
