Tonight: The Good Wife & The Forgotten

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, ABC, CBS, Cold Case, The Forgotten, The Good Wife on 09/22/2009 at 3:55 pm

The Good Wife

We’re pretty excited for tonight!  This evening marks the premiere of The Good Wife on CBS and, we have to admit, we’ve been looking forward to this show for quite some time.  The cast includes some of our favorite actors of all time, the promotional trailers look fantastic and even the artwork (see above) is looking pretty awesome.  Oh, and the concept sounds pretty good, too!

The Good Wife premieres tonight, Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on CBS.

But wait!  Get your DVR’s ready because there’s also a new series on ABC this evening: The Forgotten.  Or ‘The forgotten‘ as it’s showing up on our Program Guide.  Nobody seems to know much about this series as the pilot was reshot after the lead character was recast with Christian Slater.

From all the trailers we’ve come across, it seems to be a serial in the vein of CBS’ Cold Case about regular folk who help find…well, the forgotten.  Check out some trailers we posted here and here.

The Forgotten premieres this evening, Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on ABC.

Slick poster for CBS’ upcoming Juliana Marguiles series The Good Wife.  Buzz is pretty high surrounding this show.  The trailers look great, the cast is excellent: we’re really hoping for something special here.  Our one hold back, though, is that so much has been made about the scandalous beginning of the series that, once that subsides and we’re left a legal show, some people out there may be disappointed.  We’re not saying that’ll happen, but we do see the potential.  We’ll just keep our fingers crossed.

The Good Wife premieres Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on CBS.

New Promo for The Good Wife

The Good Wife

Hey!  A new promotional trailer for CBS’ The Good Wife!  There’s really only a tiny bit of new footage, and even that’s not much more than a shadowy sex scene, but we’re really looking forward to the arrival of this show.  I’m getting a bit worried that CBS is playing up the scandal part of the series a bit too much.  Granted it is the catalyst for the series, but the main plotline, I believe, is about Juliana Marguilies’ character going back to work after the scandal.  Here’s hoping they don’t fool people into watching for the scandal and then bailing when most of the series is legal-based.  Eh, we’ll let CBS do their job and hope for the best.

The Good Wife premieres on CBS 10pm Tuesday September 22nd.

Preview: The Good Wife

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, CBS, The Good Wife on 06/01/2009 at 3:31 pm


Ever since pilot screeners hit the legit TV media world (which I am not, of course), the show most have been mentioning isThe Good Wife. Maybe because that pilot arrived first or maybe just because it’s good. I posted last night about Chris Noth playing the the disgraced politician husband upon reading Variety‘s good first thoughts on the show. Then Futon Critic said almost the same as Variety and finally, today, EW‘s Michael Ausiello said, while talking about co-star Matt Czuchry, “The pilot for his new CBS legal drama, The Good Wife, doesn’t suck. Like, at all.”

And so we now have a preview, a mix of actor interviews and scene footage. I have to say, it’s looking really good to me. And, as I was wondering, it looks possible that Chris Noth may be sticking around for than just the pilot, even from behind bars.

Mr. Big Plays The Bad Husband

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, CBS, The Good Wife on 06/01/2009 at 1:25 am


Variety posted first look thoughts on CBS’ new drama The Good Wife. The column was pretty positive and provided some good news: Chris Noth, better known as Sex and The City‘s Mr. Big or Law & Order‘s Mike Logan, will be starring as the bad guy.

As previously posted, the series stars Juliana Margulies as the wife of a disgraced politico who gets locked up after a scandal ends his career. Margulies is then transformed from political spouse to breadwinner and must return to work as a lawyer. I was previously delighted by the casting of former Gilmore Girls and Friday Night Lights hunk Matt Czuchry for the series and the addition of Noth makes it even better.

No word, though, on how long Chris Noth’s character will remain in the storylines, if he even makes it past episode one. Remember, the series’ whole reason for being is him going to jail. Here’s hoping they keep him around as a recurring character, atleast. I’m not really pulling for flash backs as those tend to get tiresome, but even disgraced husbands deserve jailhouse visits, right?
