The Good Wife: Season Seven Ratings

5 October 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, original castmember and fan favorite Archie Panjabi left The Good Wife TV show. How will this development affect the series' storylines and ratings? Will they rise or continue to fall? Is this the year that the series is cancelled by CBS or will it be renewed for an eighth season instead? Stay tuned.

On The Good Wife, attorney and mother Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) continues to face new challenges and opportunities in both her personal and professional lives. This season, the series also stars Matt Czuchry, Alan Cumming, Zach Grenier, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christine Baranski, and Cush Jumbo.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around »

The Affair Season 2 Premiere Recap: Cell Block Tango

4 October 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The good news about The Affair‘s Season 2 premiere: Unlike December’s season ender, no one was held at gunpoint.

The bad news: Not a single person seemed remotely happy throughout the hour.

Ok, maybe that’s an exaggeration. Noah certainly cracked a smile or two during the episode. Helen’s new boyfriend seemed mighty pleased throughout (with himself, mostly). Even Helen and Noah’s divorce mediator (from one Pov) seemed positively jovial about the couple’s decision to end their marriage.

But aside from those fleeting moments of optimism, the Showtime drama’s sophomore debut featured a number of »

'The Good Wife's' Alan Cumming on That Surprise Eli Twist: "He's Out for Revenge"

4 October 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from The Good Wife's season seven premiere, "Bond."] The lawyers of The Good Wife have been through firm changes and personnel changes galore in the past few seasons. But on Sunday's season premiere of the CBS legal drama, one of the show's longest running partnerships came to an end. After Peter (Chris Noth) brought famed political strategist Ruth Eastman (Margo Martindale) onto his presidential campaign, he promptly fired Eli (Alan Cumming) — to the shock of not only Eli himself, but also Alicia (Julianna Margulies). After a little soul searching and downtime at home, Eli made

Everything is about to change on “The Good Wife” when its Season 7 premiere hits the airwaves on Sunday. Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) is running for president, Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) is drinking smoothies, and Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is a free agent, mainly because no one will hire her. Oh yeah, there’s a new investigator in town — following actress Archie Panjabi‘s exit at the end of last season — and not only does he not wear knee-high boots, he’s all up in Alicia’s cookies. “I would say the biggest difference is that last year Alicia’s ambitions got away from her humility, »

Helen Mirren Is Officially Retiring from Onscreen Nudity

2 October 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sexy septuagenarian Helen Mirren is still as gorgeous as ever, and as a hilarious 2011 "Saturday Night Live" sketch proves, her breasts are truly wonderful. But, sadly, audiences won't be able to see them on the big screen again.

In a recent CBS interview with Alan Cumming, Mirren revealed that she's officially covering up for good, and won't do any more onscreen nudity in the future. Cumming, who called Mirren's breasts "legendary," discussed the actress's previous nude roles, and the Oscar winner admitted that though she initially "never wanted" to get naked on camera, she also didn't think it was a very big deal.

"I was doing nude scenes [from] the first moment I started doing movies. ... It was the era," Mirren, who's been seen in the buff in flicks from 1979's "Caligula" to 2003's "Calendar Girls," told Cumming. " ... It seemed to be nothing to get your knickers in a twist over. »

Helen Mirren Retires from Doing Nude Scenes

30 September 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news, gang! At 70-years-old, acclaimed actress Helen Mirren says she has retired from doing Nude Scenes in movies. At this late stage in life, she has decided that the only one who gets to see her bare breasts is longtime husband Taylor Hackford. After appearing in the buff in a number of different projects over the years, why this sudden change of heart? It's simple, as the actress explains.

"That's the good thing about getting older, you don't have to do that sort of thing any more. My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband."

This news comes at a time when Helen Mirren is still being voted one of the sexiest woman in her native homeland of Britain. And that's despite the actress being a septuagenarian. She is most infamously remembered for going nude in the X-Rated 1979 sex fest Caligula, which also starred such iconic and classic actors as Malcolm McDowell, »

X-Men: Apocalypse: what should we expect?

30 September 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An ancient mutant will attack the 1980s in 2016's new X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Here's our look ahead...

If the double-bill disappointment of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine couldn’t kill the X-Men franchise, nothing can. Now that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past have got the series back on track, there’s no stopping Fox’s mutant movies.

Standalone adventures for Deadpool, Gambit and (again) Wolverine are all underway, and there’s even talk of a TV series and slowed-down-a-bit rumours of an X-Force movie.

However, there’s one upcoming X-film that promises a bigger scale, a more dastardly villain and the biggest collection of dodgy haircuts than any of the rest. That film would be X-Men: Apocalypse.

This one’s the next team-based instalment, and it will focus on the recast protagonists introduced in First Class, picking up after their adventure in Days Of Future Past. »

More Nude Scenes For Helen Mirren? Here's What She Says

29 September 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you didn.t already know this, Helen Mirren is awesome. Sure, she.s a distinguished Shakespearian actress with tons of memorable roles and awards to her credit, but she also wants to be in a Fast and Furious movie, isn.t afraid to brandish heavy weapons on screen, and is willing to take risks should a part demand it. There is, however, one thing that she.s done in the past that shall remain firmly in the past from now on: don.t expect any more nude scenes from Dame Helen. During a recent interview on CBS, conducted by Alan Cumming, the 70-year-old Academy Award winner put the subject to rest, saying that her days of publicly baring it all are now behind her. She said: That.s the good thing about getting older; you don.t have to do that sort of thing anymore. My pleasure pillows are »

Helen Mirren's Breasts Have Retired

29 September 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Dame Helen Mirren as always is one of the greatest women on the planet. Not just an award-winning actress, Mirren is also famous for a dry sense of humor, her candour, and a radiant vivaciousness.

Mirren recently sat down with another actor of a similar disposition - Alan Cumming - for a CBS interview in which she says that, at 70, she's now done with on screen nudity.

In fact the entire four-minute interview revolves around her breasts, or her "pleasure pillows" as she calls them, but in terms of retiring the girls from the spotlight she says:

"That's the good thing about getting older; you don't have to do that sort of thing anymore. My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband."

Mirren has taken off her clothes on screen numerous times throughout her career starting with 1969's "Age of Consent" all the way through to 2003's "Calendar Girls" and »

Say goodbye to the pleasure pillows! Oscar winner Helen Mirren has had no problem showing off her body throughout her almost five-decade-spanning career. In fact, her boobs are so famous, they earned their own Saturday Night Live skit back in 2011.  In a new interview with actor Alan Cumming, the host of CBS’ Remember That Time, Mirren, 70, opened up about going nude in her films — and why she won’t be showing her breasts, or “pleasure pillows,” on-screen anytime soon.  “I didn’t know my boobs were legendary.

The Voice Recap: We Don't Really Want to See You Put a Ring on It

28 September 2015 7:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There’s a reason I wiped the most recent season of The Bachelorette from my DVR after only two episodes: I don’t actually enjoy watching real people get engaged on television. (Fictional characters? Get down on bended knee and keep doing your thing!)

This might explain the recurring waves of nameless dread I felt during Monday’s installment of The Voice, as host Carson Daly repeatedly teased how “coming up after the break” (after the break) (after the break that’s after the break) (because apparently we’re all going to change the channel to DWTS if there’s »
