Though it’s never been hit in the ratings, CBS has been renewing The Good Wife year after year. Will this be the season when the show’s luck runs out or will it be the biggest year yet? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a seventh season? We shall see.
On The Good Wife, attorney and mother Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) continues to face new challenges and opportunities in both her personal and professional lives. The series also stars Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, Graham Phillips, Makenzie Vega, Alan Cumming, Zach Grenier, and Matthew Goode.
The higher a show’s ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better its chances for survival. New ratings data will be added as it becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Due to a Nielsen glitch, some of the early ratings of the 2014-15 season were revised a couple weeks later.
Last year comparison: The fifth season of The Good Wife averaged a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.4 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
