I would have voted for both The Good Wife which is one of my all time favorite shows and Nashville which I really enjoy watching!! Log in to Reply thecourt99 October 14, 2013 Hearing this about The Good Wife really bothers me. I am a fan of the Good Wife, yet I cannot seem to catch it on my DVR because football always pushes the time back. As a result, I prefer to watch Good Wife in other ways. All CBS has to do is move the show to another day. This is a horrible scheduling choice and they are making this wonderful show the fall guy for their bad decisions. Log in to Reply Marland Fan October 14, 2013 TV By the Numbers is a joke of a website. It has listed The Good Wife as a “bubble” show every year it has been on, even though it consistently wins the demos. Log in to Reply GHFan777 October 14, 2013 I love the Good Wife. It is one of my favorite prime time shows. I also love Parenthood and Nashville. I did not care for Betrayal at all and took it out of my DVR. The new Wonderland was disappointing, but I am giving it another chance this week. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 October 14, 2013 I love “The Good Wife”. It seems to be on the bubble every year by those websites. Still I think CBS is pretty happy with the show. What else would CBS air Sunday nights that would get similar ratings? Log in to Reply harlee490 October 14, 2013 Oh please CBS keep The Good Wife, out of all the soaps that is listed it’s by far the most creative and has completely delivered on quality since it debuted. This new season has been brilliant thus far in the short new fall season. Log in to Reply BellaDonna October 14, 2013 IMO, The Good Wife is hands down the best show on the air. Its biggest problem is that it rarely starts on time during football season, at least in the East Coast markets. Why it was moved to Sunday nights is completely beyond my comprehension. Log in to Reply CinLee October 14, 2013 If they’re going to schedule a show against a juggernaut like Big Bang Theory, they shouldn’t expect stellar ratings. And the list of renewal likely (for comedy) is horrible and the comedy on the chopping block is hysterical. Blegh. Log in to Reply 1titanman October 14, 2013 I would think The Good Wife would have some healthy ratings on Sunday Night, and The Good Wife is a really good written television show. Nashville is another good show I like, and along with Parenthood which a good show, but sometimes there scenes are way too long, and the storylines are slow moving… Log in to Reply Yoryla October 15, 2013 Definitely The Good Wife! Log in to Reply jme October 15, 2013 The Good Wife – the best show on television? Hardly. I love it but there are definitely better shows. I don’t think The Good Wife is actually a bubble show. I love Parenthood. Don’t watch the others. Parenthood is like the little show that could. It has a great cast, great stories and great acting. Could not ask for a better show. Log in to Reply TV Gord October 15, 2013 I love them all, but I haven’t watched Wonderland yet. The Good Wife has always been listed as a bubble show because it always HAS been a bubble show, but as Matt Roush at TV Guide pointed out this week, it’s a prestige show for CBS, so I don’t think it’s in any real trouble.
