  • Over on CBS, The Good Wife was up 9% to a 1.2 rating and 8.68 million viewers, while The Mentalist matched last week’s 1.2 rating and garnered 8.63 million viewers.

Simon Baker and Bruno Heller Talk THE MENTALIST, Closing the Red John Chapter, Arriving at His Identity, and What the Resolution of This Case Means

by     Posted 1 year, 26 days ago

Now that he has finally come face-to-face with Red John, the serial killer he’s tracked since the madman murdered his wife and daughter, it will be quite interesting to see what’s next for Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) on The Mentalist.  After nearly five and a half seasons of hunting Red John, that chapter of the story is closed and everyone will need to start over and find their place again.

During this recent interview to discuss the ramifications of that resolution, show creator Bruno Heller and actor Simon Baker talked about what was most important to them with this seminal episode, when and how they arrived at Red John’s identity, how this will affect Patrick Jane going forward, what the resolution of this case will mean for the rest of the team, whether Patrick Jane will ever return to law enforcement, why now was the right time to deal with this storyline instead of waiting until the end of the season, when the Blake Association was put into place, whether they ever considered an alternate ending or an alternate identity for Red John, and how they’re now working towards making a good season finale.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Dominant CBS Renews Almost Entire Slate of Programming, Including ELEMENTARY, THE GOOD WIFE, and 2 BROKE GIRLS

by     Posted 1 year, 269 days ago

Whereas NBC is desperately scrambling for viewers (after falling behind Univision in some recent rankings), CBS, the most dominant of the Big Four networks continues to show its programming stability by renewing almost all of its series, including:

  • Freshman Sherlock procedural drama Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
  • The excellent series The Good Wife, which has been on the bubble for years (however, with a new syndication deal CBS surely sees more dollar signs and viewers by keeping it on the air)
  • Comedies Mike & Molly and 2 Broke Girls
  • The many procedurals: NCIS: LAPerson of InterestThe MentalistHawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods.

Two series that haven’t made the cut yet though are Criminal Minds (because of cast negotiations) and the Dennis Quaid vehicle Vegas, which hasn’t ever seemed to find its audience.  For more on these shows (and the ones these nine series join in the ranks of already renewed), hit the jump.
