DON'T MISS: "THE GOOD WIFE" - Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) agreed to renew her vows with Peter (Chris Noth), but she clearly still has Will (Josh Charles) on the brain as this drama closes out another superb season. Just what will she do? Meanwhile, the episode is mainly pegged to a voter-fraud plot and an ensuing court case that brings on some standout guest stars, including Martha Plimpton, Denis O'Hare, Dylan Baker and Ana Gasteyer. 8 tonight, CBS.
