News for The Good Wife

What's Hot Today

CBS President on Good Wife Time Slot, Mike & Molly Wedding, Vagina Jokes and More!

With her network clobbering all others in ratings, and with only one new show premiering this season - the horrific Rob - CBS President Nina Tassler took to the stage today at the Television Critics Association press tour and answered questions regarding a number of steady performers. Among the highlights from her panel, along with those sprinkled in from other network guests: No, CBS is not happy with the football overruns pushing back The Good Wife almost every Sunday, but "the show feels like a better fit on Sunday night. More importantly, the audience that does watch the show on Sunday is more upscale, more female and very engaged." Ashton Kutcher has a new, clean look (above) and the reason why will be addressed on Monday's Two and a Half Men . While confirming 2 Broke Girls will likely continue to use the diner as a setting, Tassler responded to criticism over risque storylines with the line of the week: "Vagina is not indecent."  A Mike & Molly wedding will almost definitely take place in May. Note : 2 Broke Girls creator Michael Patrick King just completed a VERY hostile session with reporters. It deserves its own post... //

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... //

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. //
