TV ratings: 'The Firm' starts quietly, NFL playoffs give CBS a big win Sunday

Fast National ratings for Sunday, Jan. 8, 2012An overtime NFL playoff game on CBS delivered a huge audience early Sunday night and led the network to a big ratings win. Elsewhere, "The Firm" had a pretty soft start for NBC, particularly in the adults 18-49 demographic, while "Once Upon a Time" returned to ABC with improved numbers compared to its last couple episodes of the fall.Thanks to the Steelers-Broncos game running past 8 p.m. ET, CBS delivered 22.6 million viewers and a 13.2 rating/20 share in households for the night (those numbers will change some because of the live NFL telecast). ABC (7.2 million, 4.4/7) finished a distant second. NBC took third overall with 6.25 million viewers and a 4.1/6, while FOX (4 million, 2.3/3) trailed.CBS also dominated the adults 18-49 demographic with a 7.1 rating.

The Good Wife Promo & Photos: Jason Biggs Guest Stars

The Good Wife returned from its midseason hiatus this weekend with a rather interesting case of the week.  A husband decided to sue Lockhart/Gardner for alienation of affection.  He insisted that David Lee drove him and his wife to a divorce so that the firm could profit from the sale of assets. The firm's equity partners (including Eli) didn't want to pay for David's mistakes in the event that they lost the lawsuit.  Later, Kalinda realized that a simple mistake by Alicia could have severely damaged their case.  With the missing document later found, Alicia couldn't be certain that David didn't fabricate the document so they could get the case dismissed.

'The Good Wife' EPs: Peter's investigation elicits a 'male code of honor' for Will

When we last left "The Good Wife," Wendy Scott Carr just dropped the bombshell to Will that she's actually investigating Peter and not Lockhart/Gardner, as she is pretending to be. Zap2it spoke with creators Robert and Michelle King about this revelation - and the Kings assure us they have an endgame in mind, but they aren't spilling the beans."We always liked the idea of somebody's sins catching up with them," says Robert. "So even though someone could be honestly turning over a new leaf, or at least pretending to turn over a new leaf, you can't get away from the past. Our thing with Peter's past in his first term are there are things he did not necessarily go to jail for that have never been answered for."The nuance of Peter's position as the State's Attorney is that when does doing favors become corruption."One of the razor's edges the show likes to dance on is... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/01/the-good-wife-eps-peters-investigation-may-elicit-a-male-code-of-honor-for-will.html

Jonathan Groff Headed to Good Wife

The sometimes Glee star will appear on the legal drama in February as "a plaintiff suing a software company after his sister disappears during a peaceful protest in Syria." Presumably, Groff's character will enlist the services of Lockhart Gardner, though we could also imagine a Groff–Michael J. Fox dream team facing off against Alicia and whatever crazy name the show dreams up for Twitter. (Twitter would be the software company in question, right?) This is also the show's one opportunity to have Groff stage some sort of Arab Spring/"Do You Hear the People Sing" mash-up, so here's hoping they don't let that one pass by. http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2012/01/jonathan-groff-headed-to-good-wife.html

The Good Wife: Can Alicia and Kalinda's Friendship Come Back Stronger Than Before?

That sigh of relief coming from fans of The Good Wife Sunday was not over an Alicia ( Julianna Margulies ) and Will ( Josh Charles ) reunion, nor even a possible rekindling of the passions between Alicia and Peter ( Chris Noth ). It was for the CBS legal drama's real fan-favorite duo, Alicia and Kalinda ( Archie Panjabi ), and what appeared to be the beginning of a reconciliation for the former best friends.
