The Good Wife Finale: Alicia, like the Cheese, Stands Alone

Originally posted 05/09/2016 12:10AM

CBS' The Good Wife ended Sunday night on a note of deep, deliberate ambiguity that, for all its clever dodging of definitiveness, struck an oddly incorrect note.

Nothing changes the fact that this was the best network drama of the past 20 years or so. Mad Men, by contrast, may have concluded on a note of crystalline, acidic perfection, but the show itself was often bafflingly uneven. I'll take Good Wife.

I mean, it's not as if Kalinda Sharma lept out of the bathtub with a knife.

Still.

Spoiler warning: For those who haven't seen The Good Wife series finale, plot details will follow.

Alan Cumming on His Tony Awards Co-Host: Kristin Chenoweth 'Can't Stop Talking' (VIDEO)

Originally posted 06/04/2015 08:55AM

As Kristin Chenoweth prepares to host the Tony Awards on Sunday, she has put herself on vocal rest – dry-erase whiteboard and all – to keep her vocal cords in tip-top shape.

Her awards-night co-host revealed to Seth Meyers on Wednesday, however, that she "can't stop talking" and that her vocal rest lasted "for about 30 seconds."

Alan Cumming, 50, told the Late Night host that Chenoweth starts her meetings off with the dry-erase board, segueing rapidly into whispers, her normal speaking voice and then straight-up "screaming."

Sunday night marked many firsts on The Good Wife: the start of Taye Diggs's guest arc; the introduction of Gunter, a hairy gentleman prone to bathing in the Florrick, Agos restroom; and the long-anticipated acting debut of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama's senior advisor.

But most notably, The Good Wife somehow staged the most suspenseful bail hearing in TV and movie history. (Take that, Hitchcock!) The episode was also jam-packed with great dialogue.
