A Good Title?

Networks and show creators often struggle with creating titles that will resonate with viewers. Sometimes the title of a show is the only thing that a viewer might see before deciding on a new show. Sometimes, an accurate title is all that keeps a robot from going homicidal against his show's producers.

In fact, what happens is that a robot- me- shows you how to repair a variety of things.

In the case of The Good Wife, the title was chosen after they considered many other titles like In the Spotlight (dull) or The Whole Truth (boring). It was one of the other titles, however, that would have made an epic show. The epic title? Leave the Bastard. Who wouldn't watch an awesomely titled show called Leave the Bastard? It would have been a perfectly cromulent title!
