Last season, The Good Wife saw a big drop in the ratings but CBS renewed it anyway, most likely because of syndication profits. Will the numbers rise this season? Will the show be renewed for a sixth season or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.
On The Good Wife, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) continues to work out her tricky personal life while trying to win cases for her firm’s clients. Others in the cast include Josh Charles, Christine Baranski, Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry, Graham Phillips, Makenzie Vega, Alan Cumming, and Zach Grenier.
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.

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.
