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. And guess what? Despite the ministrations of fans, who claim that they will never watch their favorite show without [insert character name here], it often works!

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

Could Damian Lewis' new look be growing on costar Claire Danes?

While attending a private screening of their hit show at New York City restaurant Lafayette on Thursday evening, Lewis was spotted also celebrating November's famous facial trend: a mustache.

"It's not for a role – I'm doing it for Movember," the actor, 42, told PEOPLE during the event.

Adorable! Homeland Gets the Sesame Street Treatment

Homeland Gets the Sesame Street Treatment

Carrie's cry-face just got a whole lot cuter because Homeland's been given the Sesame Street treatment.

From the moody jazz-infused opening sequence to Special Sheep Agents, the Showtime drama is parodied in "Homelamb," a segment for the iconic children's show.

Nicholas Ba-a-a-a-rody – who sports Damian Lewis's trademark red locks – comes under fire for being a wolf in sheep's clothing. While Saul (who is played by Mandy Patinkin on the series) dons trademark glasses, Carrie breathlessly delivers why she thinks Ba-a-a-a-rody's is deceiving the Special Sheep Agents in a performance that rivals Claire Danes's portrayal on the actual Emmy award-winning series.

It's not just the fact that President Obama and the Television Academy (which hands out the Emmys) have named Showtime's Homeland their favorite show, but there is also the enormous contribution of its star Damian Lewis to consider.

Some look at Lewis and find a thinking person's sex symbol.

As for Lewis's perception of himself and his TV persona, "I know it looks like I'm thinking deep thoughts on the show," he tells November's GQ magazine about playing Nick Brody, "but I'm probably just trying to remember my next line."

Emmy Picks: What They Got Right and What They Didn't

Originally posted 09/24/2012 08:35AM

For some reason I started Emmy night worrying that Hugh Bonneville of PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey would win best actor in a drama, or that there'd be a Downton sweep. He gives a perfectly lovely performance, but it's essentially like watching Piers Morgan mellowed by a life of having valets brush his evening jacket.

But Damian Lewis won for Homeland, allowing my head to clear and track what I thought the Emmys got right and got wrong.

Got right: Homeland, Showtime.
Mad Men and Breaking Bad both had tremendous seasons, but neither was as brilliantly focused right out of the gate as this new political thriller. It was fitting, too, that the acting awards went to both Lewis and Claire Danes: They're a sort of Janus head – two faces, terrorist and counter-terrorist, each collapsing under the pressure of a duty to protect (hers) and destroy (his).
