The Good Wife Spin-Off Finally Has a Premiere Date

Wed, 7 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

CBS All Access has announced the premiere date for the upcoming Good Wife spin-off. Picking up one year after the events of the Good Wife finale, The Good Fight begins after a financial scam destroys the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie), and all the savings of her mentor, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski).



The Flash: 6 Ways Barry Can Save the Future

Wed, 7 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

For a midseason finale, you'd expect that the self-aggrandizing speedster ancient Savitar murdering Iris (Candice Patton) would be the last thing the show would want to leave fans with going into the break. (Happy Holidays, West-Allen fans!) But instead, we got a pleasant denouement with a cute scene of Barry (Grant Gustin) gifting an apartment to Iris, and a special moment where Barry just tries to be present with his soulmate. An adorable scene -- but also, who shops for an apartment alone, signs a lease, and tells another human being, "OK, this is where we live now" without any input from them? [...] again, Barry and Iris only have five friends and they all know about The Flash, so I'm guessing Cisco (Carlos Valdes) might be disappointed but he'd bring them something back. Make them as life-like as possible (if Cisco can whip up a Kid Flash suit on a moment's notice, I'm sure they can make some Real Girl dolls). Get Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Kaitlin (Danielle Panabaker) to freeze the dude (once Barry points in his general direction, since Savitar is hidden from non-speedster eyes), and then it's just about punching and super-punching him into oblivion. [...] even though it's just one enemy that the Superfriends have to pummel and it seems like overkill to have everyone gang up on him, it's like watching your favorite sports team win big against a rival. Maybe Savitar shows up at S.T.A.R. Labs or at the newspaper office, or maybe Barry and Iris catch Savitar having a crumpet at a local tea place and he gets so embarrassed he overreacts by stabbing people to death. Sure, Earth-38 has its own troubles with a constant influx of aliens in a bad mood and legendary screaming nightmares inhabiting a generation of women, but at least you've got a couple of Supers there and you can go back to visit Earth-1 whenever you want. If there's anything we can pull from Jay's scolding, it's that, while knowledge of a possi

?Chicago Fire Boss on Casey and Dawson's Big Decision, Severide's Upcoming Love Triangle

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

We're going to have a shocking ending around Episode 13 that's going to lead into 14, where 51 is never going to be the same. ... [...] there's going to be a call that Casey goes on where he has to decide who he's going to save in a real Sophie's choice. [...] it's going to be haunting, but it's also going to have ramifications that take up the next episode. Chicago Fire returns with a two-hour crossover episode on Tuesday, Jan. 3 at 9/8c on NBC.



The Voice: Here's Who Got Eliminated, and Who's in the Finale

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

The Voice sent home Aaron Gibson from Team Miley Cyrus and Brendan Fletcher from Team Adam Levine Tuesday, which wasn't surprising. Brendan is a very capable and likable singer but his range hardly matched some of the best in the competition. A serious contender for the crown, Billy practically had everyone crying rhinestones after putting his showmanship on display Monday. Saved second, which is kind of a symbolic travesty because Sundance shouldn't follow anyone. Christian, touching as he is, was a bit dull with "I Can't Make You Love Me," and Ali, perhaps crumbling under nerves and too much passion, wobbled a little with "Sledgehammer." Josh played it safe though, sailing smoothly through "I Drive Your Truck."



The Flash: Savitar Offers a Dark View of the Future

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

Tuesday night's fall finale revealed that Savitar is some version of "future Flash" and he's come back to take something that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) had taken from him. Speaking through Julian Albert (Tom Felton), Savitar also offered a harrowing prophecy for Team Flash: one member would be betray the team, one would fall and one would suffer a fate worse than death. Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) was able to pull Barry back to the present and remind him that the future changes with every decision we make -- but Barry won't be able to shake that image from his mind. Is Barry really destined to watch another loved one be killed at the hands of a speedster wanting to prove a point to him? The West-Allen family was able to have an overall happy Christmas, but there's no doubt that darkness looms ahead for them in the second half of the season.



This Is Us: Bad Things Can Happen on Christmas Eve

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

At the end of the night's festivities, Toby collapsed in Randall's (Sterling K. Brown) living room and was rushed to the hospital. The closing moments of the episode showed Toby flatlining on the operating table with doctors attempting to revive him -- and we'll have to wait several more weeks before we find out whether he survived. data-image-credit=NBC, Ron Batzdorff/NBC data-image-alt-text=Chrissy Metz, This Is Us? data-image-credit-url= data-image-target-url= data-image-title=Chrissy Metz, This Is Us? data-image-filename=161206-news-this-is-us-chrissy-metz.jpg data-image-date-created=2016/12/06 data-image-crop= data-image-crop-gravity= data-image-aspect-ratio= data-image-height=1380 data-image-width=2070 data-image-do-not-crop= data-image-do-not-resize= data-image-watermark= data-lightbox=> Since the first episode, Toby has been a shining part of Kate's storyline. With Kevin living in New York now and Kate 3,000 miles away from the rest of her family, Toby is an essential part of her journey and his death could be a hard blow that Kate doesn't have the strength to handle at this juncture. Toby carries a lot of the comedic relief weight (though Randall has been catching up recently), and just like he balances Kate, his sarcastic and dry sense of humor helps to balance some of the heavier drama of the show.



NCIS: A New Rivalry Emerges - Or Is It a Bromance?

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

For viewers who were confused by the overt introduction of Reeves, who we also saw in the Thanksgiving episode a couple of weeks ago, it's likely due to the fact that these episodes of NCIS aired out of order. [...] if nothing else, Torres setting Reeves up as a target for Bishop's brothers in the previous episode makes more sense now, given their competitive dynamic that we see emerge this week. The two agents go head-to-head throughout the episode, ribbing each other over their wardrobes, bench weightlifting capabilities, and mutual good looks. Jenna Flemming, a popular and ambitious congresswoman (guest star Mary Stuart Masterson), becomes the target of death threats, and the investigation leads Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Quinn (Jennifer Esposito) to a handful of internet trolls who spread misinformation on social media and belong to an online forum that calls for the death of female politicians.

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

On Wednesday's winter finale of the Fox series, the holidays are in full swing when Riggs (Clayne Crawford) and Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) are called to investigate the murder of a young woman that may feel familiar to some eagle-eyed fans. To find out if Riggs' heart will eventually grow three sizes and how the murder is connected to his past, tune in when Lethal Weapon airs Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.



Shut Eye's Jeffrey Donovan Explains How to Run a Psychic Scam

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

Have you ever looked at one of those neon sign-bedazzled fortune telling parlors in an upscale neighborhood and wondered "how does that place pay its rent?" Well, Shut Eye creator Les Bohem has wondered that, too, and he made a show about it, which premieres on Hulu Wednesday, Dec. 7. According to Shut Eye, the answer is "crime." While the organized crime element of Shut Eye is fictional, the techniques the psychics use to get clients' money are very real. "When people are trying to take money from you, and telling you that 'I can see your future,' it doesn't get any more simple than fraud," says Donovan. Much of the transaction is in charm -- which Donovan has in spades -- but he also learned a little bit of how to read the cards; more importantly, he learned about how to read people.



Fuller House: Who Should Win DJ's Heart?

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

In Season 1, DJ was stuck between Steve (Scott Weigner), her high school sweetheart who has carried the torch for her since they were teenagers, and Matt (John Brotherton), her new business partner at the veterinary clinic where she works. The final episode of the freshman season showed DJ picking herself rather than either of the men to settle down with, but they both will still be around for Season 2, making it inevitable for the love triangle to resurface. Back in the day, Steve was a confident football player who ate everything in the Tanner fridge but was absolutely nuts about DJ. Unfortunately, we already know that Steve has moved on with a DJ lookalike in the sophomore season, so it might be a minute before he's able to find his groove with his old flame again. When DJ tried to back out of their first date with a white lie about having a dentist appointment, he called every dentist in the area to try and track DJ down. If Matt can prove he's capable of having a professional and personal relationship with DJ without things getting messy, he could very easily override Steve's nostalgia points to become DJ's Fuller House match. The move to keep DJ single for a prolonged period of time isn't unprecedented either.
