The duo steps in following Andrew Dettmann’s exit. The “CSI” alum was set as showrunner on the pilot, but will not continue with the Dick Wolf medical drama as it goes into series, though he will continue to develop with NBC and Universal TV.

Now that's what we call a judging lineup.
"The Silence of the Lambs" This is definitely my favorite Best Picture-winning horror movie featuring Chris Isaak in a supporting role. Let's just think about the glamor of 1991 for a minute: "Point Break" occurred. Kate Nelligan was in whatever movie she wanted. CeCe Peniston was a reigning pop star, which is important because her last name has "penis" in it. And "Silence of the Lambs" was an ominous and unconventional movie that everyone agreed was fantastic. Anthony Hopkins is in "Silence of the Lambs" for less than 20 minutes but his performance lingers far after the credits roll. Jodie Foster is charismatic and august as Clarice Starling, who is no mood for fava beans by the time the movie is over. "Rain Man" I keep pretending I'm incapable of enjoying Tom Cruise in movies anymore, yet "Rain Man" is about as timeless and likable as a 1988 drama is allowed to be. »

Watching this week’s installment of The Good Wife, I couldn’t help but think of a line made famous by Chris Isaak (almost 25 years ago!) in his smash hit “Wicked Game” (you know, the one with the black-and-white video where he and supermodel Helena Christensen played extra-sexy Twister): “It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.”
Yep, as she points to her public halo and asks “Is this thing on?”, Alicia Florrick finally succumbs to an extramarital Humpty Dance* only 72 hours before Election Day. »

We're not sure how anyone managed to concentrate on their knockout rehearsals after Ricky's frankly bizarre dancing, which is apparently intended to relieve nerves. It's certainly... distracting. But somehow they did, so after Ricky had told »
