The best show on television belongs to stodgy old bastard CBS, and stars the lovely and talented Juliana Marguiles. Despite the unfortunate title (which I hate SO MUCH) the show is flippin amazing and I hope it sticks around as long as it wants to. It’s that good.

Why’s it good?

The Cast: Marguiles was one of the strongest actors on “ER” but was never really stepped out of the shadow of her hot male costars. Remember the episode where Ewan McGregor held her hostage in a grocery store? That was LEGEND! And in this part, Marguiles walks a fine line, a character going through intense personal hell inside, but trying to maintain a collected face to snotty work colleagues, her family, and the press. Watching her back are two of my favorite actors in the world, Archie Panjabi and Josh Charles. Ms. Panjabi is insanely talented, disappearing into any role she plays, from “Bend it Like Beckham” to “A Mighty Heart” she’s really one of the best actresses working today, because it takes a few minutes to realize it’s her, and by then you’re already loving the work. And Josh Charles, so amazing on the too-soon-gone, “Sports Night” Creates perfect sexual tension.
