Kit Harington Wants More Naked Men on Game of Thrones (But Maybe Not Himself)

Originally posted 03/28/2014 08:35AM

The gender disparity in cable nudity has become a social-media flashpoint, and few shows on television have received as much criticism on this issue as HBO's Game of Thrones, a fantasy series with enough female nudity to invite the term "King's Landing Strip," but nary any of the displays of swordsmanship its female fans might want to see.

Good Luck, Good Wife: 13 TV Shows That Survived Killing off Major Characters

Originally posted 03/24/2014 12:00PM

Killing off a main character in a television show is a risky move: You're upending the show's world (and putting a coworker out of a job) in the hope that the shake-up will lead to something greater down the line.

Below, 13 shows that did the same thing The Good Wife did Sunday night, and not only survived, but thrived.
