‘The Good Wife’ Ending After Season 7


Well, that’s one way to announce some big news.

CBS has just announced that The Good Wife is officially coming to an end after seven seasons through a commercial during Super Bowl 50. The series will say its final goodbye in May which means there are only nine episodes left.

Earlier last month at the Television Critics Association winter session, Glenn Geller announced during his executive session that Good Wife creators Michelle and Robert King would not be returning after the seventh season. That was some pretty big news and no one could really see how the show would move forward without them.

According to Vulture, just shortly after TCA, Julianna Margulies made a shocking comment at the Casting Society of America’s third annual Artios Awards saying, “I surprised Robert and Michelle tonight.” “They didn’t know I was going to be here. They think I’m here for them, but I’m unemployed come April, and I think you haven’t seen me in a while, at least not in person, so I thought I should show up.”

Can anyone say DRAMA?!

I just hope she ends up with Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Watch Trailers for CBS’ New Shows: ‘Supergirl,’ ‘Life in Pieces,’ ‘Rush Hour,’ and More

CBS_LIMITLESS_CUTDOWN_master_559135_640x360

CBS announced their fall 2015-16 schedule early Wednesday morning and released a few trailers their upcoming new series, to get us all a little excited for what’s to come later on this year. Personally, I can’t wait for Supergirl and Limitless.

Check out the trailers below and let us know what you think!

LIFE IN PIECES – Mondays at 8:30 p.m.

An irreverent look at a family’s sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments, starring Academy and Emmy Award winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award winner James Brolin, Zoe Lister Jones, Colin Hanks, Angelique Cabral, Thomas Sadoski, Betsy Brandt and Dan Bakkedahl.

SUPERGIRL – Mondays at 8 p.m. (Starting in November)

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

LIMITLESS – Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

LIMITLESS, based on the feature film, is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT, that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.

CODE BLACK – Wednesdays at 10 p.m.

CODE BLACK, based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, is a heart-pounding medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation, where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all – creating a condition known as Code Black. At the heart of the ER’s controlled chaos is Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish (Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden), renowned for successfully performing high-risk procedures in Center Stage, the trauma area reserved for the most critical cases. Her four new first-year residents are Christa Lorenson (Bonnie Somerville), Malaya Pineda (Melanie Kannokada), Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth) and Angus Leighton (Harry M. Ford). Leanne’s confidante, Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman), is an amiable seen-it-all senior nurse who manages the residents.

ANGEL FROM HELL – Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. (Starting in November)

ANGEL FROM HELL stars Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch in a single-camera comedy about Amy (Lynch), a colorful, brassy woman who insinuates herself into Allison’s (Maggie Lawson) organized and seemingly perfect life, claiming to be her “guardian angel.”

Now that NBCFox and ABC have released their fall schedules, it’s CBS’ turn to share some of their new shows as well as some old favorites that are returning for the upcoming 2015-16 season. And by old favorites, I mean 22 returning shows.

CBS hasn’t really made as many changes as the rest of the networks except for the fact that long-time running series CSI is coming to an end. Finally. After 15 seasons, the series will wrap up with a two-hour series finale in September, with original cast members Marg Helgenberger and William Petersen set to return.

New comedy series Life in Pieces will join The Big Bang Theory on Monday nights in the 8:30 p.m. time slot, followed by the highly anticipated Supergirl that starts in November and will fill in during the 8 p.m. hour after Thursday Night Football ends.

Limitless, the new drama series based on the movie with Bradley Cooper, stars Jake McDorman and will join the NCIS family on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Heart-pounding medical series Code Black lands on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. and Ted Danson joins Patricia Arquette on the cast of CSI: Cyber on its new night and time, Sundays at 10 p.m.

Mom, Elementary and new comedy series Angel from Hell will air on Thursdays in November starting at 9 p.m.

Where the hell are Person of Interest and 2 Broke Girls? All we know is they’ll both be returning sometime midseason. Date TBD.

Watch: First Look at ‘Under the Dome’ Season 3

barbie1b_0

CBS has just released a first look at the upcoming season of their hit series Under the Dome. Last we saw,  Barbie had led the people of Chester’s Mill out through the caves, only to find Melanie on the other side being all cryptic saying “Follow me, we’re going home.”.Unfortunately, Julia wasn’t able to make it across. But don’t worry, she thinks the dome will protect her. Plus, Junior is with her so everything should be fine, right?! RIGHT?!

Anyways, I digress. In the first teaser, we find out that they did, in fact, make it out from under the dome, only to see pink lightning flashing from inside where Big Jim and Julia are still stranded. It doesn’t really show much, but we do see the first look at Marg Helgenberger who joins the the cast “in an extended story arc, beginning with the premiere episode, as the town’s inhabitants figure out the Dome’s purpose and what it wants from them.”

Event series Under the Dome returns for a  third season with a special two-hour premiere on its new night, Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT before moving to its regular time period on Thursday, July 2 at 10 p.m. immediately following Big Brother

TV Shows Invade Week One of SXSW

IMG_9249

SXSW isn’t just for the tech, music and film industry anymore. The TV world is officially making its presence known with cool installations, photo opportunities, branded transportation and more. Networks and studios are coming up with new and interesting ways to grow their audience by expanding on their existing brand recognition and just stepping it up a notch.

Here’s what we saw in Austin this week:

HBO

HBO celebrated the upcoming season premiere of their hit series Game of Thrones by creating a #SXSWesteros interactive exhibit. Fans were able to sit on the Iron Throne,  participate in an interactive sword training game and even taste the new Game of Thrones-themed beer, a Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison Ale from the Ommegang brewery. HBO joined forces with a production company called Red Paper Heart, along with Civic Entertainment Group, to create an interactive sword-fighting experience whereby attendees would pose for a portrait, then step up onto a stage and hit a target using a replica of Arya’s wooden practice sword. The more accurate you were, the more your picture would project onscreen. Users were then able to email themselves their portrait at the end.

In celebration of the release of Catch the Thrones: The Mixtape, Vol. 2, HBO set up a social media vending machine that gave out prizes including a Catch the Throne iPhone case. Snoop Dogg and Talib Kweli are just a couple of artists that are featured on the mixtape that you can check out below.

FOX

FOX decided to get in on the food truck bandwagon in Austin by sending out a Simpsons-themed Kwik-E-Mart Truck of their own. The popup served over 3,400 squishees and claim to have given out the frozen sugar water at a rate of “2.6 Squishees per minute.”

IMG_9353

NatGeo

National Geographic Channel presented attendees with an opportunity to check out their “Escape the Cold” simulator in advance of the season 3 premiere of Life Below Zero on April 9. Fans entered the cold climate of Alaska and had to complete challenges in order to get back to the warmth of Austin, TX.

USA Network

The cable networks upcoming hacker series Mr. Robot, starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater, definitely made their presence known by sending out a street team of guys wearing all black with Mr. Robot black hoodies and sunglasses on, walking around Austin in silence. Kind of like how the guards outside of Buckingham Palace don’t speak or move. It was sort of creepy, but it goes along with the vibe of the show which premieres in June 2015. The series will debut at SXSW on March 17 and was selected as one of five TV series to appear in the Episodic Screenings, a relatively new category for SXSW Film. Other shows included The CW’s iZombie, Lifetime’s UnReal, Rashida Jones’ Angie Tribeca and FX’s The Comedians. 

IMG_9587

FX Networks

FX did a little something different. They took over an already existing establishment, creating the “FX Fearless Factory” where they told SXSW-goers to be Be Fearless. The installation had something fun for everyone including:

  • Interactive FXNOW App Wall
  • The Strain Evolution Gallery
  • The FX FEARLESS Social Vending Machine
  • Free Craft Coffee From Austin’s Flat Track
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Custom Giveaways And More

Visitors were treated to donuts from Little Lucy’s of Austin and could even get their own custom rigged Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll T-shirt.

NBC

What better way to promote the second season of a show than by kicking off a comedy tour featuring the stars of the series. Chris D’Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman performed at Esther’s Follies on Saturday night and I’m not gonna lie, they were pretty freaking hilarious. Make sure to tune in to the season 2 premiere of Undateable on Tuesday, March 17 at 9/8c.

Saturday Night Live had a 40th Anniversary Virtual Reality Experience Presented by Samsung Gear VR on site. Cast member Vanessa Bayer, producer Erik Kenward, and filmmaker Chris Milk were on hand to guide attendees through the experience, which allowed users to sit in on pieces of the SNL 40th (specifically, Jerry Seinfeld’s audience Q&A) as if there were part of the audience.

A&E

SXSW wouldn’t be complete without a replica of the Bates Motel to help promote the new season which premiered on March 9. In just three days, A&E had built The Bates Motel, a fully-immersive live activation based on the hit thriller by the same name. The motel will open its doors throughout the festival to let fans truly experience the world of Norman Bates, complete with authentic décor, show props designed with the series producers, a Bates-themed Tumblr GIF booth and eerie surprises around every (dimly-lit) corner.

Fans could even enter to win a night’s stay in one of the three fully-functional replica rooms which included:

·       “Special” brownies – often found in White Pine Bay – from local bakery Delish;
·       Maid and turndown service from leading-service booking platform Handy;
·       Bates Motel-themed welcome packages from Austin-based Tito’s Vodka; and
·       “Minibar room service” from liquor delivery service Drizly.

CW – iZombie

Last but not least, was The CW / Buzzfeed party in celebration of the series premiere of iZombie on Tuesday, March 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The “Party Til You’re UNDEAD” party came with everything you hoped for in an undead party, including 3D printed candy brains and even zombie hosted bartenders serving “Brain Appétit”-themed drinks.

‘The Good Wife’ Photo Gallery: “Sticky Content”

The race for State’s Attorney is in full swing and Alicia is determined to beat her newest opponent, Frank Prady, but doesn’t want to fight the dirty way with a negative campaign strategy. But we all know Johnny and Eli are going to push for just that. Meanwhile, Cary has been asked by the Feds to help build a case again Lemond Bishop. I mean, this sounds like a good thing but will it help him? How is Kalinda involved? Does it affect her in any way? I’m sort of fearing for her life at this point.

‘The Good Wife’ Preview: “Message Discipline” [Photos]

The Good Wife is known for having some pretty amazing guest stars and this week is no different. David Hyde Pierce (Frasier) joins the series as legal commentator, Frank Prady.

On a side note, can we just talk about how much I’m loving the amazing flirty awkwardness between Elsbeth and Josh Perotti?! Fantastic!

‘The Good Wife’ Preview: “Shiny Objects” [Photos and Video]

Last week’s episode of The Good Wife was probably one of the best episode of the entire series. I wanted them to shoot the entire episode at the table. We can tell that Eli and Alicia are getting pretty serious about her running for State’s Attorney, to the point that they brought well respected campaign manager, Jonathan Elfman (Steven Pasquale) to the house to discuss oppo research. That took quite the turn when they brought some pretty tough secrets to light, especially ones that Alicia didn’t know about. Not only did Zach lie to her and say he was going to look at colleges for the weekend, but he went with his then-girlfriend, Neesa, to get an abortion and didn’t tell her about it. Even her parents knew about it. This made Alicia’s skin boil. I mean, I’d be pissed too. Now she thinks he’s lying about everything, including the bong photos from last season. Good thing Eli didn’t let Jonathan Elfman (Steven Pasquale) tell her about the intern in Peter’s office. That would have been too much.

This week’s episode titled “Shiny Objects” has the entire team of Florrick/Agos/Lockhart on red alert when a hacker seizes control and threatens to delete all of their files.
