A funny thing happened to the TV characters who made our original “Most Polarizing” list: many are no longer with us! (Was it something we said?)
Actually, chalk it up to cancellations and such. Regardless, that mass exodus of those you love, love, love or haaaaate has created a void, which we are here to fill.

TVLine pays attention, taking notice of the characters that, like clockwork, spark debate — be it either Arrow blonde, a traitorous S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, the ruler of an Empire, Once Upon »
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Doctor Who, The Good Wife and Chicago Fire!
1 | Has Jessica Jones given young women the easiest (and a modest!) superhero costume to pull off? (That said, doesn’t it kind of look like Shiri Appleby’s UnREAL wardrobe?) And after so many start-and-stops, has Rachael Taylor (Charlie’s Angels, 666 Park, Crisis…) finally found herself a winner?

TV beards can go one of two ways: They’re either so epic that they deserve their own on-screen credit, or so dreadful that they deserve to be written off — like, yesterday.

While messaging a friend last week about a show whose pacing was much too slow, I wrote, "I'm getting frustrated with how the plog is moving." "Plog" was a typo, but it accidentally captured the feeling I have about too many shows right now where the plots are a slog to get through, and where the experience of watching individual episodes feels less and less satisfying. On Friday, Netflix released the first season of its latest Marvel series, "Jessica Jones," and while I liked it a lot, I also found myself frustrated at times by the show's structure, which largely treated all 13 hours as one big chunk of story, with little to distinguish each installment from the next, and with not quite enough material to fill that many episodes. As Vox's Todd VanDerWerff has written, writers who create shows for the different streaming services are increasingly choosing to — or in some cases, »

Warning: The following recaplet contains spoilers for Monday’s Scorpion. Proceed with caution.
Unless you have the emotional quotient of Walter O’Brien himself, chances are you were dabbing your eyes as Monday’s installment of Scorpion faded to black.

Don’t worry, Supergirl fans, you’re not losing your collective minds.
Though Monday’s installment of the CBS drama seems to take a giant step backwards, storytelling-wise, it’s merely the result of last week’s decision to swap “How Does She Do It?” with “Livewire” in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris.

ABC’s J.Lo-hosted American Music Awards was down but by no means out.
Sunday’s telecast drew 11 million viewers and a 3.5 demo rating, off only slightly from 2014’s 11.6 million/3.8 rating. It easily marked ABC’s highest-rated Sunday of the season.
Fox | Buoyed by its football lead-in, The Simpsons (5.6 million/2.3) more than doubled its demo rating vs. »
The 2015 “American Music Awards” gave ABC its strongest Sunday of the television season even if it came in a little below last year’s event in key ratings categories. NBC dominated the night overall as usual with “Sunday Night Football,” but its Cincinnati-Arizona matchup produced season-low results.
The “AMAs,” hosted by Jennifer Lopez from Los Angeles, averaged a 3.5 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 11 million viewers overall from 8 to 11 p.m., placing second to football in the demo for its time period. The kudocast was down 8% (0.3) in the demo and off by about 600,000 total viewers from last year and gave ABC its top-rated Sunday night since the night of the Billboard Music Awards in May (3.8 in 18-49, 11.2 million total viewers). The “AMAs” led its time period in key female demos as well as teens 12-17 (3.5/15).
Kicking off the night, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall) matched »

First David Letterman retired, then Jon Stewart — and now, out of the blue, E! just canceled The Soup. After December 18th, we'll no longer get to watch Joel McHale savage the idiocy of reality-show celebrities, a vital public service he's performed for the past 11 years. And if last week is any indication, the remaining episodes are going to be something to see; the host is already going down swinging with hilariously mean jokes about Charlie Sheen, Jared Fogle, and E! itself. Still … only four more to go? What a crummy »
If there's one thing we learned from "Restraint," it's this: Never get in Diane Lockhart's way when it comes to the First Amendment.Let's start at the beginning. Diane is still working with the conservative think-tank headed by Reese Dipple (a tragically absent Oliver Platt) and Dipple's henchman Ethan, played by Peter Gallagher. I like to pretend that Peter Gallagher is playing his character from Center Stage on The Good Wife, having become a conservative think-tank operative after the demanding life of ballet choreography became too stressful. It makes the subject matter of this episode far more manageable. Trust me. Ethan approaches Diane with a surreptitious video of a doctor at an abortion clinic — it's not Planned Parenthood, as the show takes pains to point out — who talks about harvesting and selling fetal tissue. Her explanations are frank and explicit, made all the more disconcerting by the fact that »

At this point, Justin Bieber, pop star, and Justin Bieber, purveyor of GIFs to use when you just miss the subway, have become one and the same. After a teary-eyed VMAs performance, Bieber blessed us with yet another repository of images that easily represent how you feel when Starbucks is out of pumpkin spice lattes. The Biebs started things off with a medley of "What Do You Mean" and "Where Are Ü Now," but the big moment came with "Sorry," during which the singer emptied what's left of California's water supply onto the L.A. Live stage — all so that you can have the perfect response when your DVR messes up its recording The Good Wife. »

The Good Wife remembered Christine Baranski is one of the best actors in their cast and finally let her do things besides look flawless, roll her eyes and mediate squabbles (not that those things aren't enjoyable). In "Restraint," Diane was tasked with going against her pro-choice ideals and defend Citizens for Ethical Medicine at the behest of Sandy Cohen. Sorry, Peter Gallagher's character Ethan Carver. Diane It was a ripped from the headlines story featuring a doctor secretly recorded talking about what happens with aborted fetuses. Making Diane go against her ideals wasn't something new for The Good Wife, but in doing so Baranski really got a chance to shine. She wasn't going to do it until »
Diane Lockhart’s “Where did she get that and how much did it set her back?” wardrobe tells the story of a woman who very rarely loses a case.
But while The Good Wife‘s steely, erudite law partner may be a superhero to those of us who think the ability to rock a chunky necklace is as impressive as leaping a tall building in a single bound, she does have her own particular brand of kryptonite.

At some point, it was inevitable that Diane's deal with the devil (aka billionaire Reese "R.D." Dipple) would come back to haunt her on The Good Wife. When R.D. became Lockhart, Agos' biggest client, she extracted a promise that he'd never force her to push his anti-choice position. But in the world of hot-button political issues, some promises can't be kept.
Unfortunately for Diane, what transpires next has huge consequences for Lockhart, Agos. The biggest beneficiaries of her actions might just be the fledgling firm of Florrick & Quinn. And wait until you hear what's up with Eli!

Remember when Grace Florrick purely existed to cause drama for Alicia Florrick? Those days are long gone. Well, she's still causing some drama, but it's not at determent to her mother. The Good Wife finally fixed its Grace problem. A problem Makenzie Vega was aware of. "This season she's really able to support Alicia more and I think in doing so, I think everyone's probably to like her more—I like her more," she told E! News when we visited the set in October as the cast and crew were filming this Sunday's episode. Grace and Zach (Graham Phillips) seemed to exist in the early days of The Good Wife purely to let Alicia (Julianna Margulies) emote or struggle with balancing her »
