News & Notes

Find The Good Wife Season 1 on DVD at AmazonTonight, ABC has a 20/20: Charlie Sheen: In His Own Words special.

Over on cable, Golf Channel has the third season finale of The Haney Project.

Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): New. It looks like the murder of a former investigative assistant may be linked to a robbery plan. A new special agent arrives at the office.

Raising Hope (FOX): New. Sabrina and Virginia both find out secrets about the other and Sabrina tries to blackmail Virginia with them. Burt has to go in for a vasectomy. Plays following a 90 minute American Idol and runs 30 minutes.

The Good Wife (CBS): New. The firm is suing an Internet company that failed to protect the identity of one of its customers in China, which lead to his being imprisoned and tortured. Eli gets some news that may help them knock Childs out of the race. Will and Diane are trying to garner enough support to take back control of the firm. Mini Review: Another outstanding episode, as the partnership maneuvering comes to a head tonight and a vote is called. I loved how the whole things plays out, as you can’t do much better than delivering me a story that ends the way I thought it would, but made me seriously doubt it during the episode. Also, there is some really good stuff on the campaign storyline. Lastly, the case is very interesting and it is dealt with very well, giving you both sides and something to think about. There are some great character moments for all the main players and few of the side characters. Everything together makes for a very strong episode that left me wanting more. Can’t wait to see where they go from here.
