'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Trust Issues' - Diane Says Go
After last week's surprising premiere that landed Cary in some serious hot water, showed that Finn still has some claws that he's willing to use, and pushed Peter into a political corner, Alicia Florrick is going to need some serious help in this week's episode of The Good Wife. Thankfully, Taye Diggs has some time off from Murder In The First, and so he's coming to the rescue. Kind of. And Diane finally makes the leap she's been threatening to for weeks now. Everything is not okay, but things are looking pretty good in chapter two.

'Saturday Night Live' Season 40 Premiere: Chris Pratt Proves To Be Perfect Utility Player Host

September 29th, 2014 9:04am EDT
SNL Chris Pratt
To kick off its milestone 40th season, “SNL” entrusted the premiere to first-time guests Chris Pratt and Ariana Grande. Pratt proved to be the perfect utility player host, comfortably slotting into all his roles without overshadowing the cast. His trademark goofy energy could have been put to greater use, but this was an episode of “SNL” that wanted to try out new material and cover some of the most pressing news stories. New cast members Michael Che and Pete Davidson looked perfectly comfortable as they made auspicious debuts. Overall, this was an episode that was not entirely focused ...

'Masters Of Sex' Recap: 5 Memorable Moments From 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised' And Thoughts On Season 2

'Masters Of Sex' Recap: 5 Memorable Moments From 'The Revolution
Individually, the episodes that make up Masters of Sex’s second season have been brilliant. The development of Virginia and Bill has moved at a steady, believable pace, as well as the character development of side characters like Libby, Betty, Lester, and Austin. We lost one of the show’s best characters, Dr. Lillian DePaul, probably too soon, but it was effective nonetheless. The introduction of Bill’s brother and exploration of his relationship with his father was another strength. However, as a whole, season two has been rocky.

The show rid itself of some of season one’s strongest eleme...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Last season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" left us with so many pressing questions. Questions like:

How long will Jake Peralta stay undercover?

Will this be the start of a new recurring story arc?

Is it humanly possible for Holt to get any sterner?

And "Undercover," the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" season premiere, delivered a series of succinct answers. "Not long." "Yes, but not in the way you'd think." "NO."

First up is Peralta's undercover duty. Which, given its importance at the end of last season (it even spurned Jake into sharing his feelings with Santiago, for God's sake) seems lik...

8 Potential Breakout Stars In Television
You know them: the actor who's really good at what they do, but for whatever reason, doesn't get as much attention as they deserve. Maybe they're on a show that doesn't have a huge audience. Maybe they get less screen time than their costars. Maybe they ought to have won several awards by now and they've never even been nominated. But you love watching them every week, and you just wish everyone else would give them more respect already.

The 2014-2015 TV season has quite a few of those actors, several of whom are poised to break through to bigger story arcs and wider acclaim. Whether they'...

“Saturday Night Live” is at a point in its run when there is some, but usually not too much, turnover in its creative personnel between seasons.

Season 40’s change rate is more typical, with the addition of two featured players and five writers. On the cusp of the season premiere, let’s take a moment to get to know these rookies:

1. Michael Che (New Weekend Update Anchor/Featured Player) – Che joined ‘SNL’ as a writer at the tail end of...

'Blue Bloods' Season 5 Premiere Recap: 'Partners'
The Reagan's are back and their blood is bluer than ever.

After five years "on the job" someone decided we needed a refresher course in partnership: how some can be a challenge, some need to change, while others can stand the test of time. We'll learn our lesson through detectives “Danny Reagan” (Donnie Wahlberg) and “Maria Baez” (Marisa Ramirez), patrol officers “Jamie Reagan” (Will Estes) and "Eddie Jenko" (Vanessa Ray), and "Commissioner Frank Reagan" (Tom Selleck) and the entire NYPD, as well as his family.

There's a reason that Danny's had a revolving door of partners: he's controlli...
