    Its too bad we couldn’t vote for more than one of these shows. 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!!

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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…

    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.

    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.
