Question: Any Big Bang Theory scoop? —Alexandra
Ausiello: Extending its love affair with all things Stars and Warsy, the CBS smash will be sending Leonard and Sheldon on a road trip in early April to Marin, Calif., home of the sprawling and heavily fortified Skywalker Ranch. Their goal? To pay its owner, George Lucas, a house call. In related news, Ep Bill Prady just tweeted a first look at their trip.

Next up are reality and genre, including the premiere of the new dating-centric season of The Amazing Race and the season finale of Agent Carter, and we wrap up the week with the dramas, including the pilot of Battle Creek, the return of The Good Wife, and much more.

Rocking simple blouses and jeans ensembles, the fresh-faced girls are the opposite of trying hard, sporting minimal makeup and natural waves.

If the Emmys were an empire, cable television and streaming services would reign supreme as the kings and queens, while poor network TV would be the hard-working yet forgotten serfs. But those were the old days, the days B.C. (Before Cookie). Now that Fox's "Empire" has crushed ratings records, can this Best Drama Series contender save all of network TV at the Emmys? -Break- Related: Marcus James Dixon's Emmys predictions for Best Drama Series: 'Empire,' 'Better Call Saul,' ... Thanks to the onset of cable and the changing of viewing habits, it's been four years since a network production was even nominated as Best Drama Series ("The Good Wife"). And, shockingly, the last time a Big Four network drama won the top prize was a decade ago when another Fox series, "24," claimed gold in 2006. Things are much different over in the race for Best Comedy Series, where »
Fun fact: Michael Sheen has a name for his penis! And while it would be kind of amazing if he chose to give his male member a moniker after his Showtime series Masters of Sex (because duh, how perfect would that be?), it apparently has nothing to do with his show. But we do know what Sheen calls his penis, and that's thanks to his girlfriend Sarah Silverman, who shared the news on Twitter. "My boyfriend named his penis," the comedian wrote. "He named it 'The Great Christine Baranski.'" (Yes, Christine Baranski, the Emmy-winning actress.) Why did he name it after The Good Wife star? Perhaps Sheen is just inspired by the accomplished thesp? Maybe because Baranski »
From courting Lady Mary to duking it out in civil court — Matthew Goode is a very busy man.
Fresh off his Downton Abbey debut during Sunday night’s Season 5 finale, the actor is back in modern-day duds — a rather fetching chocolate-colored suit, if we may be so bold — in a new set of photos from The Good Wife‘s March 15 installment (9/8c on CBS).

On a busy Sunday that marked the beginning of the networks’ spring lineup rollouts, Fox had the best news as its hourlong premiere of comedy “Last Man on Earth” stood as the night’s top-rated broadcast in young adults. ABC did decently with its two-hour launch of “Secrets and Lies,” but it was a sluggish start for CBS’ “Battle Creek.
It’s been a mostly tough year for new comedies, but Fox’s “Last Man on Earth” impressed on Sunday (2.3 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall), building by 28% in the demo from its “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” lead-in (1.8/5 in 18-49, 3.6 million viewers overall) and putting Fox ahead of its rivals on the night.
The post-apocalyptic comedy starring Will Forte edged out ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” as the night’s top Big Four series in 18-49, 18-34 (1.8/6) and all key male demos. And viewers liked what they saw, as the 9:30 p. »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, March 1, 2015. Fox got a strong premiere for the new comedy "Last Man on Earth," which delivered Sunday's top numbers among young viewers and helped the network win primetime in that measure. CBS, meanwhile, easily won Sunday overall thanks to the return of "Madam Secretary," despite a weak premiere for "Battle Creek. Falling somewhere in-between the premieres for "The Last Man on Earth" and "Battle Creek" was an Ok launch for ABC's "Secrets & Lies." Both "Last Man on Earth" and "Secrets & Lies" had double-episode premieres and both shows had encouraging splits, retaining their full key demo numbers for their second episodes. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, Fox averaged a 1.8 rating for Sunday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC was second with a 1.6 key demo rating. CBS' 1.2 key demo rating and the 1.0 key demo rating for NBC followed on Sunday. Overall, though, CBS averaged »

Fox’s freshman drama averaged 5.7 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating across its double-episode debut, topping the night in the demo and standing as the No. 1 comedy launch of the TV season with Men 18-49.
TVLine readers gave Last Man an average grade of “B.”

Another season of “Downton Abbey” has come to a close in grand romantic fashion — this time with Carson (Jim Carter) surprising Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan) by proposing marriage. (Fortunately, she accepted.)
With season six already in production in the UK, Variety rang “Downton” executive producer Gareth Neame to discuss the season five finale and what’s ahead for the series.
Though rumors persist that season six could be the end of “Downton,” Neame re-confirms that no one is ready to announce such a thing just yet and renewals are made one season at a time. And while the ratings in the UK slipped a bit this past year, Neame asserts the series remains in “robust health” worldwide.

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 13: “Dark Money”
Written by Keith Eisner
Directed by Jim McKay
Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS
After the relative, unexpected disaster that was “The Debate,” in which the Kings bit off way more than they could chew thematically speaking, it makes sense that The Good Wife would return after its brief hiatus with an episode that mostly plays it safe. Accordingly, “Dark Money” is a total comfort-zone hour in theory, replete with the meta-gags the series has grown increasingly in love with, a legendary guest actor playing sharply against (recent) type, and a set of new plots for familiar returning characters. Should be a surefire slam dunk, right?
Not so much. For starters, the principal returning character of the episode – that is, the one we’ve not seen in a while – is Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker), the bourgeois almost-definite-murderer for whom the series »

In a strange way, Sunday’s Downton Abbey finale brought Season 5 full circle, as the Crawleys’ annual Christmas vacation — this time to visit Rose’s hellish new in-laws at Brancaster Castle — nearly went down in flames. (Remember that? Honestly, Edith…)
But let’s start with the only thing that really matters: Carson and Mrs. Hughes got engaged! And while I’m obviously over the damn moon about it, I have to admit I was surprised to see their relationship progress so quickly over the past few weeks. »
Alicia Florrick has a gay brother who happens to be one of her closest confidantes — an inconvenient truth my brain struggled mightily to suppress during this week’s installment of The Good Wife.
After all, to acknowledge the Alicia-Owen bond while big sis made not a peep of protest during a homophobic rant by a potential fat-cat campaign donor (a fantastically nasty Ed Asner) raised some painful questions: Has a heated run for state’s attorney cracked Alicia’s moral compass? Has her desire for victory and thirst for power turned her into a “bad person”? Or has Alicia always »
The Good Wife is back! But after their collective victory in getting Cary's (Matt Czuchry) charges dropped, it's not smooth sailing for Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi). Now that you've seen "Dark Money," which featured a bawdy Ed Asner, Alicia having a little bit of a breakdown about her campaign and Lemond Bishop (Mike Colter) calling in his favor with Kalinda for helping Cary (when he was set for jail), we're sure you have questions. We have the answers courtesy of Robert and Michelle King, The Good Wife co-creators and executive producers. Was that the big favor Lemond Bishop demanded of Kalinda? Will Alicia and Kalinda »
The Good Wife is back and suddenly everything feels right. Sunday nights are complete once again! In "Dark Money" Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker) helped usher the CBS drama back to the airwaves with a defamation suit against a TV show. The Good Wife really let Baker go to town and gave him a dual role—he also played the actor playing the Colin Sweeney-esque character—which was absurd and delightful at the same time. Julie White of Go On played the opposing counsel. When Diane (Christine Baranski) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) basically destroyed her case, White's character sought to prove Sweeney killed his first wife. Can't be defamatory if it's true. Things weren't really going Colin »
