Michael J. Fox will also reprise his role for multiple episodes. According to TVLine, the actor has closed a deal with CBS to reprise his role as Alicia’s legal rival, Louis Canning, for multiple episodes at the end of this season.
Rumors of Fox’s potential return surfaced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. At the tour, Robert King said, “We’re trying to make that work. Because he finished filming [The Michael J. Fox Show], so it looks like we’re going to get a chance to get him back.”

Forbes magazine has once again released its list of the Most Trustworthy celebrities. Michael J. Fox has been on this list many times and this year he comes in at number four behind Tom Hanks, Carol Burnett and Betty White.
I don’t know about this list. I mean, did anyone answering the poll see this?
I just found an article explaining what one viewer in particular – and I’m guessing many viewers dealing with debilitating disease – liked about “The Michael J. Fox Show”: It’s ability to humanize disease.
Shawn P. Sullivan at fosters.com writes about his thoughts on the show. Be sure to check it out.
Reports of the death of “The Michael J. Fox Show” were apparently exaggerated.
It is true that the show has been temporarily placed on hold for a while but it has been reported that NBC is looking for a new time slot for the last 7 episodes after April. These last 7 episodes will also feature some ‘tweaks’ that were implemented to make the show edgier and hopefully help bring in more viewers.

Michael J. Fox’s sitcom just got the ax, but he won’t have much time to mourn.
TV Line reports that Fox will return to “The Good Wife” for a story arc in Season 5 that will develop throughout “multiple episodes.”
Fox plays Louis Canning, a slimy lawyer who constantly goes up against Alicia (Julianna Marguiles), and we’re sure this time around will be no different.
No word yet on when Fox’s episodes will air but “The Good Wife” returns March 9 on CBS.
Hollywood Reporter is reporting that due to its low ratings “The Michael J. Fox Show” has been cancelled. The remaining seven episodes that have not yet aired have been pulled from the schedule and replaced with something called “Hollywood Game Night.” Is this yet another reality show? *sigh*
It is unclear what will happen with the remaining un-aired episodes. Perhaps we will only see them when released to DVD.
While I have been vocal with my disappointment with the show’s writing, I had hoped that it would have the chance to improve. I was beginning to like the characters – even Ian – and it’s a shame that we won’t be seeing anything further of the Henry family.
Next week be sure to tune in a half hour earlier than usual for “The Michael J. Fox Show” (assuming you’re one of the few still watching.) NBC is swapping the normal time slot with “Sean Saves the World.” “The MJF Show” will air at 9:00 EST.
This is probably an attempt to boost ratings since the program hit its lowest ratings this past week.
At this point a second season doesn’t seem likely.
And I have mixed feelings about that. I stand by my previous comments about this show. The cast is excellent. The writing is not.
