A few thoughts on last night's "The Good Wife" — and the season as a whole so far — coming up just as soon as I improperly eject this thumb drive... For reasons that have somehow been kept secret in our age of over-reporting all things entertainment, Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi haven't physically appeared together in a scene since midway through season 4. This has been a problem, given that the Alicia/Kalinda friendship had been the heart of the show for so long, and it took a character in Kalinda who almost never had good storylines on her own and forced her to exist entirely on the fringes of the series, occasionally interacting with Cary or Diane in person, but mainly on the phone with the other regulars. That's a big problem, and it turned Kalinda's exit — which involved missed phone calls, a note, and a brief video snippet — into an emotional muddle, »

The weekend TV ratings for Friday, April 24th through Sunday, April 26th are in; here are some of the highlights: The big winner on Friday night was ABC, whose Bruce Jenner interview pulled a massive 5.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, and a whopping 16.86 million viewers. If you couldn't tell from my other adjectives, that's huge. Back at 8 p.m. on Friday, Shark Tank was up two tenths to a 1.7 rating for ABC, while NBC's Grimm stayed steady in that hour with a 1.0 rating and 4.7 million viewers. On the CW, Cedric's Barber Battle bucked the trend of series losing numbers after their premieres by being up two tenths to a 0.4 rating and 1.36 million viewers. Their other new series, The Messengers, also bounced up a tenth to a 0.4 rating and 1.2 million viewers. On Saturday, NBC's Stanley Cup coverage was down a tenth to a 0.8 rating and 2.69 million viewers. [caption id="attachment_416894" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via ABC[/caption] Sunday, »

One week from its season finale, “Secrets & Lies” shot up to a season high Sunday and helped ABC, which was the Big Four leader in young adults all four hours, win the night. Fox, meanwhile, got solid scores from its comedy block, which was all original for the first time in six weeks.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ABC’s winning night opened with “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.5 rating/5 share in adults 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall) and “Once Upon a Time” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.1 million viewers overall), with the former up a bit and the latter steady vs. last week.
The Alphabet standout on the night, though, was “Secrets & Lies” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall), which was up 0.2 to a series high and matched its “Once” lead-in; the 1.7 is also better than all but the fall’s first two weeks of “Resurrection” in the time period. Though ABC »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, April 26, 2015. Renewal hopes for "Secrets and Lies" continue to improve as the ABC drama outdrew "Once Upon a Time" overall and tied with "Once" among young viewers, helping ABC split Sunday night. ABC may have won Sunday in the key demo, but "Madam Secretary" and "60 Minutes" helped CBS cruise to an easy overall win. Other Sunday notables included an impressively consistent through-line for Fox's two-hour comedy block, plus NBC's "American Odyssey" falling to halfway between "zero" and "The Mulaney Line" in the key demo. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 1.5 rating for Sunday night, tops in the key demographic. Fox was second with a 1.2 key demo rating, while CBS and NBC both did a 0.9 key demo rating for Sunday. Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 8.88 million viewers and a 5.7 rating/10 share for Sunday night. ABC and NBC both averaged a »

Oh, Kalinda, we’ll miss you. On last night’s The Good Wife, all this Lemond Bishop mess finally caught up with Kalinda (played by Archie Panjabi, whose contract is up at the end of this season). Well, actually, she pretty perfectly planned handing over the evidence to Geneva Pine so she wouldn’t get caught, but Cary messed it up for her in the end (or, you know, fate did). (Read our recap for all the info.) So Kalinda decides to leave town rather than be killed. She leaves Grace, and everyone watching at home, with a very direct good-bye:a marginally more emotional moment came earlier in the episode, when Kalinda stops by at her old friend Alicia’s place but Alicia isn’t home. This beautiful friendship, which was once so integral to the show, is given a sentimental flashback sequence, which the two likely did not film together. »

In Monday’s episode “Mother From Another Mudlick” (CBS, 8:30/7:30c), Mike (played by Billy Gardell) meets his Aunt Rosemary (Martindale) for the first time and is instantly smitten by her warmth and positive attitude. Peggy (Rondi Reed), however, can only tolerate so much of her sister’s act, especially when Rosemary renders her opinion on the tales being told »
I always take showrunners' assurances that they have story lines and plot twists set out decades in advance with a healthy dose of skepticism. That said, I have no doubt that all those years ago, when they were conceiving Alicia Florrick and The Good Wife's premise, Michelle and Robert King must have envisioned the scene that opened last night's episode. This time, it was Alicia who was resigning in disgrace, and Peter who stood a few steps back, the spouse of the disgraced. The symmetry of the moment was really cool, although I'm not sure yet whether that symmetry justifies an entire season of is-she-or-isn't-she campaign antics. Too soon.Now that she won't be state's attorney, Alicia hopes she'll be able to go back to the firm, and she sits anxiously in the waiting room under a sign that's already removed her name.

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 20: “The Deconstruction”
Written by Ted Humphrey
Directed by Ted Humphrey
Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS
That’s the length of TV time since Alicia Florrick and Kalinda Sharma occupied the same frame, or shared a scene in the same physical space. They’ve exchanged texts, emails, and even called each other up on the phone, but for all intents and purposes, it’s been two and a half seasons since they’ve meaningfully shared a scene. It’s been pointed out many, many times before (including these recaps), but since “The Deconstruction” appears to contain Kalinda’s goodbye, it’s worth hammering on just how absurd this all is one last time.
Season six has struggled mightily, especially coming after the series’ best season to date, and “The Deconstruction” really underlines just how badly the Kings have bungled the season’s major arcs. »

Like an exquisite meal sitting on a wobbly restaurant table, this week’s installment of The Good Wife had its delicious moments — marred by the intermittent/aggravating vibe that somebody at the top of the food chain really ought to be paying a little more attention to detail.
I mean, do we honestly believe Chicago drug kingpin Lemond Bishop would leave all his precious secrets on an unguarded computer in his home office? Or that Alicia and Diane would ignore their own gut instincts and professional experience — and put their faith in He Who Could Double as a Sneering, D. »
The Mentalist‘s Patrick Jane/Teresa Lisbon romance of course ended with “happily ever after,” but which of the two series leads was nervous about the partners in crimesolving (finally) hooking up?

The CBS drama will close Season 5 on Friday, May 8 with two episodes, beginning at 9/8c. It is in the second hour, titled “A Make Kaua” (“Until We Die”), that Michelle Borth returns as Catherine Rollins, who last was seen in the year-ago finale when she chose to stay in Afghanistan to help with a humanitarian issue.
“That was absolutely our master plan,” says Michelle King, with a laugh, when asked about the show’s stressful sixth season. Indeed, in its most recent episode alone, the CBS drama found Alicia being forced to resign in disgrace from her hard-won State’s Attorney post, Cary offering to testify against dangerous drug kingpin Lemond Bishop, and Kalinda and Diane throwing themselves at the mercy of the court with regard to »
On Thursday night's episode of Grey's Anatomy [spoiler alert], Shonda Rhimes killed off Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), a move that left fans stunned and heartbroken. Dempsey still had a year left on his contract, but recent rumors hinted that Rhimes was fed up with his “diva” behavior on set. His character dies after getting in a car accident and not receiving proper care at the hospital. In light of his death on the show, we’re rerunning this piece, which originally ran after Will Gardner’s death on The Good Wife. Will Gardner is dead. If that means anything to you, you’re probably still reeling. If it doesn’t, you don't watch The Good Wife. Either way, you should know that Josh Charles's character died in a hail of bullets on last Sunday's episode because the actor wanted to move on to different projects. It's not an uncommon »
