Even as the first season kicks off on CBS, we don’t have to worry whether The Good Wife TV show is cancelled or renewed for season two. This spinoff of The Good Wife originated on CBS All Access (the paid subscription streaming service) back in February of 2017 and was recently renewed for season four. We’re still tracking the ratings, to see how it stacks up to the other summertime programming on the CBS broadcast network. Will it be a hit, or has everyone who cares already watched it on CBS All Access? Stay tuned.
A CBS legal drama, season one of The Good Fight stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele, and Justin Bartha. Paul Guilfoyle, Bernadette Peters, Carrie Preston, Matthew Perry, and Rita Wilson recur. The spin-off picks up one year after the events of The Good Wife TV series finale. In the wake of the 2017 presidential inauguration, Diane Lockhart (Baranski) decides to move to Provence and tenders her resignation. Her goddaughter, Maia Rindell (Leslie) is just starting out at the firm when word breaks that her parents have perpetrated a huge financial scam. Now, Maia’s reputation is trashed, and Diane’s savings are wiped out. No longer welcome at Lockhart & Lee, Maia and Diane join Lucca Quinn (Jumbo) at a prominent Chicago law firm.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly on the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
