Last season, original castmember and fan favorite Archie Panjabi left The Good Wife TV show. How will this development affect the series’ storylines and ratings? Will they rise or continue to fall? Is this the year that the series is cancelled by CBS or will it be renewed for an eighth season instead? Stay tuned.
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. This season, the series also stars Matt Czuchry, Alan Cumming, Zach Grenier, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christine Baranski, and Cush Jumbo.

Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available.
