CBS is giving its #1 drama, The Good Wife, a break for the holidays. While The Good Wife is off-air, the TV network is slipping the seventh and final season of The Mentalist into the coveted Good Wife time slot, Sunday at 9pm. But that’s just the schedule for the month of December. On Sunday, January 4, The Good Wife will return to its regular time. The Mentalist will slide into the Wednesday 8pm slot on January 7. Got that?
Good Wife fans have four weeks to worry and wonder about Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) running for State’s Attorney, whether Franky Prady (David Hyde Pierce) can be trusted, and if Cary will end up behind bars or on the lam. Only the writers (who were just nominated for two Writers Guild Awards!) know for sure. Newbies can catch up on all the drama via CBS All Access. More than 6,500 episodes of shows like The Good Wife, Blue Bloods and Big Bang Theory, are on demand. They’re currently offering a one week trial for free.
