The Good Wife Preview: Matthew Perry Guest Stars in Episode 3.19

This week's episode of The Good Wife saw Alicia securing herself a bonus and managing to pull a switcheroo on Louis Canning (guest star Michael J. Fox).  After Canning got involved in a lawsuit involving a Lockhart Gardner client suing a snowmobile manufacturer, he once again offered Alicia a position.  Desperate to secure more money so that she could afford to buy her old house, she approached Diane about the offer, asking if the firm could match it.  While some of the other partners didn't want to single Alicia out for a raise, Diane used her managing partner authority to grant Alicia a bonus.  Also, she and Kalinda have somewhat reconciled, with the understanding that their relationship cannot be what it once was, but needs to involve a rebuilding of trust.

The Good Wife: Series Renewal Means More Law, Love and Political Liaisons

Fans of The Good Wife can officially rejoice: the show has been renewed for a fourth season!  For people who have followed The Good Wife for years, this news shouldn’t be surprising (though, admittedly, welcomed), but for those who strictly track ratings, this show can often be found "on the bubble."  Why?  Your guess is as good as mine.  The Good Wife has everything going for it, including an undeniable knack for drama, charm and wit, all rolled into a tidy package earmarked for endlessly enjoyable Sunday nights.  Okay, that could be the only downfall of the show: Its Sunday night time slot often results in scheduling conflicts on the east coast, caused by everything from football to golf (seriously… golf?  The only thing that could be worse would be being delayed by bowling… or billiards).  While the delays can be frustrating, it hasn’t deterred diehard fans one bit.

Julianna Margulies Talks Matthew Perry Joining 'The Good Wife'

On the same day that CBS announced a whole slew of renewals, including the critical darling "The Good Wife," series star Julianna Margulies appeared on " Anderson " (Weeknights, 4 p.m. ET on Fox). There she talked about how she helped orchestrate Matthew Perry jumping on board the legal drama for an eight episode run. All it took was Perry telling her he was interested. The two bumped into one another at a Halloween party, and Perry told her " The Good Wife " was his favorite show and telling her he wanted to be on it. It's probably something actors hear a lot from fellow actors, but they don't always mean it. But Margulies immediately pounced on the idea. "If you say that, I will do something about it, so are you sure?" she asked him. And when he said he was, the very next day she was on the phone with the show's producers helping to make it happen, slotting Perry into a role they were already developing. She said it took him about three days to get back into the rhythm of the long shooting hours that come with a weekly series, but he settled back in nicely. Fans can look forward to Perry's first appearance with the episode airing Sunday, March 25. Julianna Margulies stars in "The Good Wife," airing at 9 p.m. Sundays on CBS. "Anderson" is syndicated nationally. Check local listings for channel and time.
