CBS To End Long-Running Drama 'The Good Wife'

CBS Ending 'The Good Wife' This Season
CBS has surprised fans by announcing that this season of The Good Wife will indeed be its last. The network released a new promo during Super Bowl 50 billing the "final episodes" of the long-running drama, which will air its series finale on Sunday, May 8.

Rumors had been swirling for months as to whether or not TGW would continue past this season, as creators Robert and Michelle King had always been vocal about doing the series for seven seasons, down to a specific pattern in the episode titles.

As such, they had announced earlier this season that they would be leaving the show to focus ...

Welcome Back: Great Actors Back On TV In 2016

Video: TruTV Releases First Trailer For 'Impractical Jokers' Sea
The new season of Impractical Jokers begins next week, and so TruTV has released a brand-new trailer filled with clips from what we can expect when Sal, Murr, Q and Joe come back in Season 5.

The season premiere is called "Hell-Copter," and features the Jokers once again taking on the roles of unhelpful receptionists in an office waiting room, as well as visiting a wax museum to perpetrate some shenanigans with the various celebrity statues there. There will be two losers in the episode, both of whom will have to endure a helicopter ride they'd rather forget.

Matt LeBlanc Joining Chris Evans On 'Top Gear'

Matt LeBlanc Joining Chris Evans On 'Top Gear' - But In What Cap
The news for Chris Evans' version of Top Gear just keeps getting more and more surprising. The BBC announced this week that actor Matt LeBlanc will join Evans on the new incarnation of the motoring show, but just how big of a role he'll have in the series is frustratingly vague.

BBC's press release doesn't give any specifics on the Episodes star's role, and it refers to LeBlanc both as "one of the new presenters" and a "new Top Gear friend."

That second phrase makes more sense if you read a recent Radio Times report that says Evans is not building a traditional hosting team, but rather a ...

Bruno Mars Confirms He's Playing Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show
Bruno Mars will be joining Coldplay and Beyonce during tomorrow's Super Bowl 50 halftime show. After much speculation about whether or not he'd participate, the "Grenade" singer posted the official announcement to his Instagram account on Friday.

It's not clear what Mars will be performing in San Francisco, but it does feel like a serious case of deja vu. The singer was the headline a...

Saturday TV Guide: NFL Pre-Game Programming Dominates
The Super Bowl doesn't happen until Sunday, but Saturday's TV programming is geared toward other shows to get audiences hyped for football's biggest game.

On CBS, which is broadcasting the Super Bowl this year, Scorpion star Katharine McPhee and NFL veteran Boomer Esiason will host "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials All-Star Countdown," a one-hour special devoted to the ads that are almost as big as the event itself. The show starts at 8 p.m.

Following that, CBS will broadcast the fifth annual NFL Honors, the league's yearly awards show. The hour-long sports slash entertainment ceremony i...

'Suits' Recap: Battle Lines Are Drawn In 'Live To Fight...'

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Live To Fight' - Firm vs. Family
This week's Suits presented several characters with the oldest dilemma in the book: their family at the firm versus the people they care about outside of it. From Donna (Sarah Rafferty) having to save her overly ambitious father from the wrath of Anita Gibbs to the return of one of our favorite supporting characters, "Live to Fight" made sure we know how much the screws are turning with just a handful of more episodes left in Season 5.

Of course, this is no surprise; the show always loves to raise the stakes in the back part of its seasons, and every TV series needs to make more drama to k...

'Suits' Star Gina Torres: 'I Had Hoped I Turned Him In'
Season 5.5 of Suits has once again put the screws to Jessica Pearson. After surviving a vote of no confidence among her firm's partners in the midseason finale, Jessica now has to keep Pearson Specter Litt going in the face of Mike Ross's federal indictment for fraud.

But when we spoke to Gina Torres during our visit to the show's Toronto set, she told us that she'd wanted to be the one causing all this trouble. "I had hoped I turned him in," she revealed, "but I knew that was highly unlikely knowing what was at stake and what the gratifications of that would probably be.

"We all have the...

'Suits' Star Rick Hoffman Tells Where Louis's Loyalties Lie Now
Suits fans know that Louis Litt is the wild card at Pearson Specter Litt. Sometimes he's out for himself and sometimes he's saving everyone else. He's the character we both love to hate, and often wind up loving.

To find out where Louis is aligning himself in Season 5 now that the firm is imperiled by the fraud case against Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), Starpulse spoke to Rick Hoffman during our recent set visit in Toronto.

"Louis has grown. As of now Louis is, he's not the bull in the china shop," he told us. "If anything, what these last six [episode] do show is that once again he's evo...
