Actor Josh Charles has been very busy recently making appearances to address the shocking and, according to some fans, distressing plot twist revealed in the 3/23 episode of The Good Wife. Here at TVWW, we remember Charles quite fondly for his first starring role in a weekly series: as Dan Rydell in Aaron Sorkin's Sports Night...

Fans of The Good Wife who haven’t already seen the Sunday, 3/23 episode have had an extraordinarily challenging time avoiding the answer to the “What happened?!” question about their favorite show. Those of us who already have that answer will want to watch this video for a behind-the-scenes look...

Billy Joel surprised his audience at Madison Square Garden Friday night by bringing out someone to join him that most of us wouldn't expect: AC/DC singer Brian Johnson. We here at TVWW preferred an appearance by Joel earlier in the week with Jimmy Fallon..

Last Thursday, Jon Stewart introduced a newly released political ad by Kentucky Senator and Senate Minority Leader Mitch Mcconnell on Comedy Central's The Daily Show.  Apparently, it’s b-roll of the smiling Senator in various situations with nothing but music to accompany it for other PAC’s to use. That's what made it so perfect for Stewart...

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for under $20.

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
