The Good Wife: an essential crib sheet for new and returning viewers

11 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Missed the first five seasons of The Good Wife, or just lost track of what’s going on? No problem! Get up to date with our handy primer. Contains some spoilers, obviously

The beauty of The Good Wife, the CBS political/legal drama which returns tonight for a sixth series, is that it follows a standalone template. While understanding the nuances of relationships and in-jokes enriches viewing, and some of the plotlines do play out over several instalments, it is possible to dip into an episode with little or no background of the previous one and still enjoy it. Useful because, well, there isn’t much time to play catchup. With that in mind, and to recap for devoted viewers, hereis What You Need to Know About the Good Wife.

13 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

CucumberChannel 4, 9pm

Russell T Davies' comeback continues with episode two of Cucumber – less emotionally raw and so an easier watch than last week's opener.

Henry (Vincent Franklin) stumbles into trouble at work, while his relationship is a shambles, but the only thing that's really on his mind is Freddie (Freddie Fox).

The Good Wife – More4, 9pm

The slick yet powerful Us drama – the recipient of multiple Emmys and Golden Globes – returns for a sixth season.

In tonight's premiere, Alicia's firm comes under fire, while she continues to resist running for State's Attorney.

FortitudeSky Atlantic, 9pm

Much-anticipated, Sky Atlantic's chilling drama kicks off tonight with a feature-length series premiere.

By the time those 110 minutes are up, you still won't quite know what Fortitude is all about. But two things are certain – it looks absolutely spectacular and the all-star cast (including Christopher Eccleston, Stanley Tucci and Sofie Grabol) are superb. »

Pilots: CBS Orders Bradley Cooper- Produced Limitless Drama, 2 Comedies

23 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS’ latest pilot orders include an adaptation of the Bradley Cooper movie Limitless.

In the original 2011 thriller, Cooper starred as Eddie Morra, a writer who with the help of the experimental drug Nzt is able to access 100 percent of his mind, and in turn rockets to success in the financial world.

The TV take, penned by Craig Sweeny (Elementary, The 4400) and counting Cooper among its executive producers, follows a man who uses his newfound Nzt-enhanced abilities to (of course) solve weekly cases for the FBI.

Other EPs on the project include Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and director Neil Berger »

Supergirl Scoop: Jimmy Olsen to Be Played by Desperate Housewives Alum

28 January 2015 5:45 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Extra, extra, read all about it: CBS’ Supergirl has snapped up Desperate Housewives vet Mehcad Brooks to play the classic role of shutterbug Jimmy Olsen, TVLine has learned.

Supergirl‘s version of Jimmy is described as a smart, worldly photographer for CatCo, the media company where Kara — played by Glee‘s Melissa Benoist — works. He has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret, and his salt-of-the-earth nature quickly piques Kara’s interest.

Brooks’ TV resume also includes stints on Necessary Roughness, True Blood and The Game.

Pilot Spotlight: 'Cocked' -- Sam Trammell, Jason Lee and Brian Dennehy Star in Dark Comedy

28 January 2015 5:09 PM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Family is like a loaded gun. Especially if you’re Richard Paxson (True Blood's Sam Trammell) and you left your rural Colorado family and its gun business 20 years ago and vowed never to go back. 

After some unfortunate circumstances, the big city corporate exec is forced to return home to help save the family business. But older brother Grady Paxton (My Name is Earl’s Jason Lee), a playboy bachelor and gun aficionado, isn’t so happy to have him back. And his liberal wife and opinionated teenage kids are horrified by the world they have been thrown into. Hilarity, epic fights and emotional breakdowns ensue.

Created by Samuel Baum (Lie to Me) and Sam Shaw (Manhattan – TV series), Cocked is an hour-long dark comedy that also stars Tony award-winning Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman), Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad), and Dreama Walker (The Good Wife) — a stellar cast. »

The Good Wife Bringing Back Gary Cole

28 January 2015 12:07 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Now that part two of the season is returning in March, networks are figuring out how to boost their ratings again. Thus shows like The Good Wife is bring back someone special for that. Thus it has been announced that Gary Cole will be returning for a story arc this year. He will be reprising his role of Kurt McVeigh, who we last saw become married back in the fall of 2013. Now we will be seeing him return and find out what he is has been up.

It will be fun to see how they written him back in. I wonder if we can expect to hear if his marriage ended? I do not see why they would bring him back without his wife, unless their marriage didn’t work. However, I suppose that is part of the fun to see what they come up with.

Are you happy that »

28 January 2015 6:52 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Even though news surfaced that the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer was set to return for Netflix’s original TV series, it wasn’t officially confirmed by the streaming network until it released a 50-second teaser touting most of the original stars’ names.

The returning cast includes: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.

'The Americans' producers: 'We're thinking about a long story that we're telling'

27 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

From its first season to its second, FX’s “The Americans” went from being a very good drama to one of the very best things on television, a show I ultimately ranked #2 overall for 2014. I’ve seen the first four episodes of the third season, which debuts tomorrow night at 10, and while there hasn’t been a comparable huge leap in quality, the show also hasn’t backslid at all. The start of the new season feels very much of a piece with season 2, pushing forward the storyline about Philip and Elizabeth being ordered by the Kgb to recruit their daughter Paige to be an asset, and finding creative new ways to portray the brutality of the spy trade in the early ‘80s. (There’s a scene early in next week’s second episode that you may need to “watch” from behind the couch.) On an unseasonably warm day early last month, »

Watch Viola Davis' Brief But Incisive SAG Awards Acceptance Speech + She Shares Her Love for Cicely Tyson

26 January 2015 8:19 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

To be frank, I actually didn't expect her to win in her category. I really didn't. Not because I don't think she's deserving (she's Viola Davis, and she's an Actor!), but I thought her category (Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series) was the toughest, with impressive competition, most of them previously nominated and/or won in this category in past years: Claire Danes ("Homeland"), Julianmna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"), Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey"), and Robin Wright ("House of Cards"). So I wasn't expecting a first-timer in that category to actually win it. But she did! So »

Last night, the 2015 SAG Awards, which aired on both TBS and TNT, honored a lot of newer series.

Here’s the full list of winners (for both TV and film) from the 2015 SAG Awards (the winners’ names are bolded): Drama Ensemble  Boardwalk Empire Downton Abbey Game of Thrones Homeland House of Cards Drama Actress Claire Danes, Homeland Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey Robin Wright, »

Viola Davis’ Powerful SAG Awards Speech Might Make You Cry

25 January 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There’s no doubt in our minds — that was the best speech of the night!

Viola Davis stole the spotlight at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild awards when she won Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Drama for her work on the freshman drama How to Get Away With Murder.

The second-time winner took the stage in a gorgeous white gown, and spoke of how her 4-year-old daughter, Genesis, asks for bedtime stories – but that she always includes one special request: “Mommy, can you put me in the story?”

Davis said, “It starts from the top up,” and thanked Htgawm's executive producer Shonda Rhimes and creator Pete Nowalk. "Thank you… for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman, could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me."

With tears in her eyes, the star continued, "Thank you to all the people who love me, exactly how God made me."

Did Sofia Vergara Just Throw Shade at Julianna Margulies?

25 January 2015 7:01 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It looks like Sofia Vergara might not like The Good Wife as much as the rest of us!  The Modern Family actress was caught in the act giving a major eye roll, seemily at Julianna Margulies' expense. It all went down during the presentation of the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. As the audience was giving it up for Margulies and her nomination, Vergara, who was seated directly behindher, threw out what seemed like a whole lot of attitude. Check out the smoking gun below: Now, since Julianna is one of the most likeable celebs out there, there's probably a less-scandalous reason for said shade. Our theory? Perhaps Sofia's Modern Family costar Eric »
