Someone’s following in Josh Charles’ footsteps and leaving The Good Wife. And that someone is Archie Punjabi who has played Kalinda Sharma since the first season. She’ll exit at the end of Season 6. The Emmy award-winning actress will headline a drama pilot for 20th Century TV, under a new talent deal she recently signed.

“Archie is an Emmy award-winning dramatic actress, and rightly so,” said Sharon Klein, 20th’s executive vice president of casting. “Her work on The Good Wife has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own. We couldn’t be happier that it will be with us.”

Showrunners for The Good Wife, Robert and Michelle King, also chimed in. Read their statement below.

black-ish-renewal

Good news for all you fans of TGIT- ABC’s Thank God It’s Thursday line-up. Shonda Rimes’ latest watercooler show How To Get Away With Murder has received a full season pick-up. Normally that would be 22 episodes, but since it’s billed as a limited series, it’s only going from 13 to 15 episodes. The Viola Davis drama is the highest-rated new series this Fall, averaging a 3.6 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo and delivering more than 14 million viewers in its opening night.

The alphabet network also gave out good news to new comedy black-ish. The rookie sitcom gets an additional nine episodes, upping it to 22. The Anthony Anderson series debuted strongly thanks to its lead-in Modern Family. It debuted to 10.8 million and a 3.3 rating.

Are you happy about both these shows getting more episodes. Personally, I’m enjoying both but really obsessed with HTGAWM. Viola is sensational and I’m loving gay law student Connor (Jack Falahee). How sexy is he?

Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.

Were you one of the millions of viewers not happy with the series finale of How I Met Your Mother? There were definitely plenty of haters who felt betrayed and ripped off. You can never please everyone I suppose. Personally, I didn’t mind it.

As promised by the producers, an alternate ending is included on the final DVD box set. It’s a happier one than the one that aired. That is of course depending on how much you hated the original send-off. Check out the alternate and original ending below and weigh in on which one you prefer in the comments section.

amazing-race-season-25-cast

It appears that CBS is continuing their mandate to create more cross-brand synergy between their shows. On the heels of Survivor: San Juan del Sur casting former racers, the Amazing Race has tapped Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollefson from Survivor: South Pacific.

They’re not the only familiar faces. The milestone 25th season of The Amazing Race includes pro surfer Bethany Hamilton, famous for losing an arm during a shark attack, and TNA pro wrestling stars Brooke Adams and Robbie Strauss, better known as Miss Tessmacher and Robbie E to their fans.

The Race kicked off in May with the first ever public start from Times Square in New York City where Phil Keoghan introduced a new game-changing element, “The Save.” The team-that finishes first in the premiere episode will be awarded “The Save,” which they can use to rescue themselves if they come in last on a leg and face elimination. Teams this season will travel through eight countries and twenty cities.

The Amazing Race moves to a new night, Fridays at 8pm this Fall, starting September 26. Check out the teams below.

Survivor is bringing back the Blood vs Water twist for Season 29. This time though, all the castaways have never played the game before. With that being said, there are several familiar faces including Amazing Race alums (the Twinsies), former MLB player John Rocker and Miss Michigan.

Also included in the bunch is a gay couple who are dancers. Clearly, CBS is in love with Broadway performers after casting BB’s Frankie Grande.

Initially, Exile Island wasn’t part of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, but the show lost one pair after a medical checkup just days before filming began in Nicaragua. Check out the ones who made the cut below and weigh in on which ones are your favorites. There are a couple of certifiable hotties among the bunch. Survivor 29 premieres on CBS with a special 90-minute episode on Sept. 24 at 8pm.
