Kalinda is out of the picture but the show must go on. CBS has renewed The Good Wife for a seventh season.
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 starred Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, Graham Phillips, Makenzie Vega, Alan Cumming, Zach Grenier, and Matthew Goode.
The sixth season of The Good Wife averaged a 1.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.72 million viewers. In the key demo, that’s down by 15% year-to-year but the series is up slightly in viewers.
The ratings have never been stellar so the network certainly could have cancelled the show. However, that looked unlikely since the writers were already working on next season’s installments.
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Good Wife TV show? Is it still worth watching? How much longer should CBS air it?
One of the few showes I cared to watch. Great acting.
I hope CBS reads these comments ..because i love the good wife and don’t want to see it go .. the new people on the show this year fit in great and make the show better

I have watched the show from day one, I do not want to see the show go off the air
It is the consistently best show on TV since West Wing. I love it.
Yes! It is one of the few well written shows and we look forward to every episode. At least let the writer’s give us a great last season that wraps up all the loose ends!
I love the Good Wife. My mother in CA watches & I’m in WA. We love seeing a show about a smart, savvy, business woman who is in charge of her own life! Have watched since the beginning.
What about all the awards it has won?
We have enjoyed this show year after year. We will miss the intricate plots, up to date legal issues and excellent characters. We will be sad if the show is cancelled.
I enjoyed this show b/c of the love triangle between Will, Alicia and Peter. When Will died I forced myself to watch with hopes there would be something to fill that void, but there wasn’t. If this show wants better ratings they need to introduce another triangle or kiss it goodbye. The premise ‘good wife’ has strayed from it’s title. I’m not interested in her starting over again – we’ve already seen that – why recycle yesterday’s news? Are they that desperate? I want to see her and Peter back together. The struggles of her career means nothing if she… Read more »
It needs to stop now, especially as Kalinda is no longer in it. I didn’t realise that the woman that plays Alicia had so much input to the point that she has got rid of most of the top starring positions./
A unique thing about “The Good Wife” is that all of its episode titles have the same number of words as the number of he season in which they appear, up until season 4; for example, season one episodes’ titles have one word, season two episodes’ titles have two words. The creators of “TGW”, Robert and Michelle King, have expressed the idea that ratings permitting, “TGW” would run for seven seasons, which would for a symmetry with its episode titles: 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 for seasons 1, 2 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, respectively. This has got me thinking that Season 7… Read more »
