THE GOOD WIFE
March 30, 2014  | By David Bianculli  | 2 comments

CBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
After last week’s stunning episode, I hardly have to tell you to watch tonight’s installment of The Good Wife. What I do have to tell you is to warn you that, because of CBS coverage of NCAA basketball earlier in the day, tonight’s show might start late on the East Coast. So if you’re setting a recorder, allow plenty of extra time. The sports overrruns affecting The Good Wife many Sundays is the most maddening thing about CBS’s scheduling of its best drama – but otherwise, I have no complaints. For a full story about The Good Wife and its revelatory recent episode, see Jonathan Storm’s Eye of the Storm. And to hear my NPR report on the same topic, see the Fresh Air with Terry Gross website.

I meant to add that sports are a favorite of guys.

Couldn't agree with you more. Shocking as this may be, I don't watch sports. I'm looking at you football, basketball, baseball & golf!! I dread the Superbowl pre-game antics as well as March Madness. TV programmers fail to note there are women (& men) out there who could care less about these competitions. And the last time I checked, Dear TV Advertisers, women are the ones who spend the family income. Just put on the shows we want - when we want.

CBS on Sunday drives me crazy. Why don't they just change the times of their shows rather than have the viewer switching back & forth? I've all but stopped watching 60 Minutes because by the time it gets going, I've already started watching something on another channel. With the exception of the summer, this goes on all year with CBS. And by the summer it's all reruns anyway. It's really insulting to CBS' loyal viewers to be treated with such disdain.

My thoughts, exactly. I add one more: Why mess with the best shows? I suspect sexism, because The Good Wife is a chick show, not a guy show. I have not bothered to wait for 60 Minutes for several years now because there is NO SCHEDULE. By the time the next excellent show, The Mentalist, appears I am asleep. The problem with live sports is that there is no way to tell when it will end. Infuriating.
