TV ratings: 'Sunday Night Football' down but still leads, Sunday 'X Factor' also dips

Fast national ratings for Sunday, Oct. 16, 2011A blowout win for the Chicago Bears over the Minnesota Vikings sent "Sunday Night Football's" ratings down some this week, but NBC still scored the evening's best ratings. FOX got big numbers from its late afternoon NFL game too, but those didn't help a special showing of "The X Factor" that much. Its numbers were not surprisingly below average, considering FOX had relatively little time to promote the episode airing away from its usual spot.ABC, meanwhile, saw "Pan Am's" ratings dip again, while "Desperate Housewives" was basically even with its low numbers from last week.NBC averaged 12.3 million viewers and a 7.6 rating/12 share in households for the night, beating FOX's 11.6 million and 6.9/11. (The numbers for both networks will change some, however, when the adjustments for live sports are factored in.) CBS took third with 10.2 million viewers and a 6.5/10, while ABC (6.9 million, 4.3/7)... //

The Good Wife Photos & Promo: Dylan Baker Returns as Colin Sweeney in Episode 3.05

This week on The Good Wife , Lockhart/Gardner got serious about the economic situation.  First, it decided to stop its pro bono relationship with the local legal aid agency.  Diane also realized that having a bankruptcy division was a smart idea during a recession and asked Will to convince Celeste and her co-workers to come to Lockhart/Gardner when their firm breaks up. Alicia's case of the week was a pro bono one (started before the firm decided to break ties with Legal Aid) that involved a witness to a robbery/murder who became a suspect.  Fortunately, Kalinda managed to pinpoint the real suspect. In the end, Celeste told Will that she was going to start her own firm and Diane's conscience made her want to bring the legal aid in-house because they were losing their funding.  Meanwhile, Eli wants Alicia and Kalinda to work with him full-time, although the others in the firm are resistant to that.  The Justice Department also sent a lawyer in to the State's Attorney's Office to ensure that there are no racial biases. In the October 23 episode of The Good Wife , Alicia runs into a huge stumbling block when her key witness in a case commits suicide.  There is only one person who can testify and save her case: Colin Sweeney (guest star Dylan Baker). Eli will also be taking it upon himself to make some big moves on Peter's behalf.  Lisa Edelstein will be making a guest appearance as Celeste and political strategist Donna Brazile will be appearing as herself.

The Good Wife Photos & Promo: A Witness Becomes a Suspect in Episode 3.04

The most recent episode of The Good Wife introduced us to one of Will's ex-girlfriends, Celeste Serrano (played by Lisa Edelstein).  Celeste will be sticking around for a few episodes, as she asked Will to join his firm. In this week's episode, Will and Alicia spent several days in a hotel, trying to mediate a medical malpractice case, with Celeste acting as opposing counsel.  Owen returned to watch over the kids and Zach revealed Peter told him about his affair with another woman who wasn't a hooker.  Back at Lockhart/Gardner, Eli was hired by a cheese guild to help crisis manage a listeria outbreak story, at least until he himself was the subject of a news story and he told Diane he didn't appreciate leaks in the office. In the October 16 episode of The Good Wife , Alicia gets involved in a case where a witness to a crime quickly becomes the prime suspect.  But the big question is whether Will and Diane will remain as partners when they both question the firm's direction.  Lisa Edelstein will also be making a guest appearance in this episode, as will Harvey Fierstein as a judge.

Top Moments: Conan's Triumphant Reunion and a Pleasurable Horror Story

Our top moments of the week: 12. Tastiest Defense: How do you know when your airline passenger is done? You stick a fork in him, naturally. Or at least, that's what Maggie does on Pan Am when a male first-class flyer (and first-class sleazebag) tries to feel her up and pull into the bathroom. It's about 50 years later, but we'd still stab someone with a fork if they pulled that crap with us. 11.
