    CBS should really try swapping TM and TGW. It can’t get much worse.

    CBS should really try swapping TM and TGW.

    I really doubt CBS is going to change up their fall schedule before episodes even start airing. As for the rest of the summer, The Good Wife is now off the schedule.

    LMAO at TGW. 0.5 is abysmal.

    When CBS announced that it would keep The Good Wife on Sundays at 9 pm instead of moving it to Fridays for fall 2012, CBS clearly showed that it wanted The Good Wife to last beyond 4 seasons. Last Sunday wasn’t the first time that a repeat episode of The Mentalist beat a repeat episode of The Good Wife despite The Mentalist airing right after The Good Wife.

    It appears that CBS places a higher priority for the Good Wife to last at least 5 seasons than for The Mentalist to make it to a sixth season because CBS has a stake in potential syndication revenue for The Good Wife.

    That move clearly showed that CBS is willing to take a ratings hit on Sunday night in order to get The Good Wife sold into syndication.

    I would agree with your conclusion if they already had a deal in place, but as far as I know, they don’t.

    Yeah Big Brother!!! Love this show so much. I did watch The Good Wife on Sunday and thought the episode was a bit boring. However, I had not seen it during the year so it was new to me….I enjoy the Good Wife during the year most times.
