With all the talk centering around females going home left and right and the judges’ refusal to judge, a teen country crooner may just be flying under the radar all the way to the American Idol title. Can anyone beat Scotty McCreery? As a teen country singer, he seems to be pulling votes from two of the biggest voting blocks on the show (young girls and country music fans). He was the first person sent to safety last night and has yet to make an appearance in the bottom three. On this week’s InsideTV Podcast, Jessica Shaw fills in for a vacationing Annie Barrett as we examine whether there is anyone that can beat Scotty. We also argue about whether Jennifer Lopez crossed the line in imploring people to vote for contestants based on their sex, not talent. READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Good Wife (79-91 of 134)
Feeling left off The Good Wife bandwagon? The good folks at CBS put together a primer to help the uninformed catch up on a juicy arc that’s evolving on the legal series. To recap: Creepy investigator Blake (Scott Porter) recently revealed the news that Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) slept with former state attorney Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), who happens to be married to her best friend Alicia (Julianna Margulies). Ooh, the intrigue! Check out the video below: READ FULL STORY
Here’s a provocative piece of casting news from CBS’ The Good Wife: The drama’s scribes tweeted Tuesday that Sarah Silverman will guest star in episode 222.
Sadly, there weren’t any more details so we’ll have to speculate, for now, what the comedienne will play. The judges on the drama have been particularly memorable (and funny), so Silverman donning a black robe would be a particularly awesome development. Stay tuned…
'The Good Wife': Creators Robert and Michelle King answer burning questions about last night's explosive episode
Every episode of CBS’ The Good Wife typically ups the ante of the one that came before it, but last night’s hour, cheekily titled “Ham Sandwich,” blew wide open the drama’s already knotty atmosphere: Dark, violent investigator Blake (Scott Porter) revealed the shocking news that — SPOILER ALERT – his mysterious nemesis Kalinda (Archie Panjabi, right) slept with her best friend Alicia’s (Julianna Margulies, left) husband, former state’s attorney Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), when she’d worked for him years before (see Ken Tucker’s take). The revelation is more than your typical twist for several reasons, but mostly because it almost transforms two of the show’s most crux-y relationships — the romantic one between spouses Alicia and Peter, and the friendly one between coworkers Alicia and Kalinda.
How long has this revelation been planned? Was it intended as a reboot? Can anything else this season possibly top this? Why not wait until the finale for such a bombshell? We tapped Robert and Michelle King — the married co-creators and co-executive producers of The Good Wife — to answer those burning questions and many more here:
InsideTV Podcast: Who was robbed on 'American Idol', plus 'The Good Wife' shines and the first booted 'Survivor' castoff speaks!
We have our American Idol finalists! But which unlikely losers were snubbed by not making it through to the final 13?

Then, the first person booted off Survivor: Redemption Island, Francesca Hogi, calls in to discuss her — albeit too short — time on the island. What does she think now of Phillip?

SAG Awards 2011: Backstage with Julianna Margulies, 'Modern Family,' Melissa Leo of 'The Fighter,' and many more
SAG Award winners accept their statuettes, give their speeches, and head off stage? They go backstage for a mini-media tour, of course, where they talk to the press and eventually make their way back to the main press room to take questions from all sorts of reporters, including yours truly from EW. It wasn’t until nearly an hour after the show started that the first winner made her way to the press room (thanks to The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies!), but after that, the winners came through in a near-constant parade, glowing all the way over the accolades they’d just gotten from their fellow actors. Here, enjoy a minute-by-minute, fly-on-the-wall account of the winners’ tours backstage from the Screen Actors Guild Awards press room.What happens after the
5:56 p.m. PT: The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies — who took home a trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series — appears as the first winner to come backstage, looking composed and beautiful as always. (Would you honestly expect anything less?) Margulies talks about several topics, but most interestingly, how the most nerve-wracking part of the night is always the red carpet. She also tells the press about her first movie role, way back in 1994: She played, in her words, “a hooker with a heart of gold” opposite Steven Seagal in Out for Justice.
a pilot-greenlighting tear lately. But which possible show has the potential to be a gem of the 2011-12 season? We’ll go out on a limb here: CBS’ in-the-works thriller Ringer, which—should the pilot get the pickup to series during May’s network upfronts—would mark the much-anticipated return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar to regular series television. Granted, Gellar acolytes have been titillated by her possible return before with HBO’s The Wonderful Maladys, only to have the pilot never make it to series. But alas, the potential seems to be there with Ringer. Until now, the show has only been described as drama about “a troubled young woman on the run who hides out by living the life of her wealthy twin sister, until she learns her sibling’s life has a bounty on it as well.” Rather vague. Are you dying for more details? Us, too, so we tracked down Peter Traugott, the pilot’s producer and head of Brillstein Entertainment Partners, the production company behind Ringer, and grilled him about the pilot. Here, Traugott spills more about Ringer’s plot, its enviable star Sarah Michelle Gellar and getting her to come back to network television (she wanted to do cable!), and why the show is indeed a good fit for CBS.The networks have been on
