Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
CBS has announced their Fall TV premiere schedule, calling it a "multi-phase rollout." The schedule begins with NFL Thursday Night Football on September 11, while the scripted series don't start rolling out until the week of Sunday, September 21. Among the returning shows lined up for premiere week are The Good Wife, Person of Interest and Hawaii Five-0...
The Good Wife has never been a particularly safe show. From the subject matter to the weekly cases to the overall story arc, the writers like to bob and weave to keep viewers intrigued. That approach led to the jaw-dropping and brilliant fracture of Lockhart Gardner earlier in Season 5
Yesterday, word broke that CBS had given a massive 3-season renewal to The Big Bang Theory. Today, good news has come down for eighteen -- yes, eighteen! -- other CBS series. These aren't three-season renewals, but the network has ensured that a lot of their currently airing programs will be back on the air for the 2014-2015 season.
NBC’s Thursday night comedy lineup has been tanking this season, but it took until this morning for the network to yank The Michael J. Fox Show from the lineup. However, there’s a silver lining to this morning’s news. Effectively cancelling The Michael J. Fox Show helped CBS to feel comfortable enough to announce Fox’s return to The Good Wife, where he will reprise his role as one of Alicia Florrick's rivals.
When Cary and Alicia left Lockhart Gardner to form Florrick & Agos, they earned the ire of an entire firm. It hasn’t always been fun or comfortable to watch, but it has been compelling. Luckily, it looks like the cast hasn’t been taking itself too seriously. Just check out their fun-loving dance moves in this brand new video.
For this ratings grab, via Rolling Stone, The Good Wife will feature the leading single “High Hopes,” “Hunter of Invisible Game” and a new version of his classic “The Ghost of Tom Joad.” The album is a mixture of new recordings of old songs and tunes that were cut from Springsteen’s last few albums, so this isn’t as high-profile a release as one might expect. And that’s probably why CBS is getting exclusivity out of it.

It’s that time of year again! Yesterday, we heard from the Screen Actors Guild on their nominations for their annual awards ceremony, and today the Hollywood Foreign Press shares their own nominations for the Golden Globe Awards.The Golden Globes celebrate some of the best that TV and film have to offer in the past year.
Tomorrow is the day to give thanks and count our blessings. And on this Thanksgiving Eve, we’re taking a look at the small screen to consider all of the things we’re feeling grateful for. Whether it’s Saturday Night Live’s new “Weekend Update” anchor, The Good Wife and Scandal’s ongoing drama, the adaptation of Preacher that’s in the works, or any of the other items on our lists, we’re feeling the love and gratitude for the wonderful bounty TV’s offered us.
If you’re a Sunday night drama on ABC or CBS, you’re probably having the best day ever. Because the numbers are in and dramas are all on the upswing, gobbling viewers away (even when the footballers are at play). Sorry, comedy — looks like Sunday just ain’t your day. The last night of the weekend has become a hotbed for dramatic activities and with the revelations from this weekend’s ratings it’s safe to assume that comedy should just look to broadcast itself elsewhere.
Since The Good Wife is structured around a bunch of different court cases each season, there is always ample room for guest stars. On Thursday, CBS’ lawyer drama announced that Alias and Deception actor Victor Garber will be joining The Good Wife for a Season 5 guest gig. It’ll still be a while before we catch the man in action, though, as his episode isn’t expected to air until early 2014.
I have no idea where The Good Wife is going. None. I’ve spent the past day and a half trying to find clues I may have missed or a clear, logical exit strategy out of the brilliant and seemingly crippling corner the writers have painted themselves into, and I’m only able to muster up a few guesses I’m less than confident about, which is a very unnatural and uncomfortable feeling to me.
Ready for the fall? Yeah, me neither. The summer TV season is only just getting started but CBS is already getting their ducks in a row for the Fall and those who want to plan ahead can get a look at what the Eye has in store for their viewers come September.
