Cary to Switch Teams on The Good Wife

Cary Agos is no longer a member of Stern, Lockhart & Gardner. Beat out by Alicia for the coveted junior associate spot on last week's episode of The Good Wife, where will this bitter character end up? The promo for tomorrow night's new installment gives fans a good idea, but let's hear it from Matt Czuchry himself: "The next episode, there is a scene where I go off on Alicia and take a job from Childs. The final episode of the season is Cary actually over there. That’s something that they could have taken at least two or three episodes to explore, and it still would have been great, but they just jumped right to it," the actor told To Read More Click Here .

The Good Wife': Matt Czuchry on the contest's original ending...

Matt Czuchry would be the first person to tell you that Cary was never going to win the junior associate bake-off on The Good Wife. But after seeing the promo for Tuesday’s episode (CBS, 10 p.m. ET) - which shows Cary in cahoots with Childs (Titus Welliver), Peter’s nemesis - we’re suddenly okay with that. Here, Czuchry tells us how the contest was originally supposed to end, if we’ll be meeting Evil Cary (fingers crossed!), and why being crowned Mr. College of Charleston changed his path from being a lawyer to playing one on TV.

The Good Wife Promo: Cary Ends Up Where?!? Episode 22

We gave the most recent episode of The Good Wife a 4.7 out of 5 stars because it settled the Alicia/Cary competition in a fascinating manner that set up future storylines well. Based on the following promo for the May 18 installment, it doesn't look like we need to wait long see where Cary ends up and how his bitterness toward Alicia may affect her and her family...

TV ratings: 'American Idol' improves, but CBS wins Tuesday

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, May 11, 2010 "American Idol" halted its ratings slide Tuesday, improving by more than a million viewers over last week's season low. TV viewing was up elsewhere as well -- enough that CBS managed to take the total-viewer crown from FOX. CBS drew 15.26 million viewers and a 9.4 rating/15 share in households, narrowly beating FOX's 15.19 million and 8.7/13. ABC (9.5 million, 6.0/10) and NBC (7.6 million, 4.7/7) were also up a little from last week. The CW was way back with just 1.15 million viewers and a 0.7/1. FOX kept a stranglehold on the adults 18-49 demographic with a 5.7 rating. CBS scored a 3.2 in the demo to finish just ahead of NBC, 3.1, and ABC, 3.0. The CW could manage only a 0.5.

The Good Wife': Alan Cumming on the 'little bombs'

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 .

How Far Will The Good Wife Go to Save Her Job?

After seven months, the battle for the junior associate position at Stern, Lockhart & Gardner will finally come to an end on Tuesday's episode of The Good Wife (10/9c, CBS). Win or lose, things are going to get even more complicated for Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies). "She's worried that she's going to lose the battle with Cary, so she comes to Eli asking for help," Alan Cumming, who plays devious campaign manager Eli Gold, tells "Basically, she reaches out to him and then, just at that point where they're about to go into the office and find out who won, you see Eli coming out and you realize he gives his own business to the firm."
