By the downsized standards of network TV today, "The Good Wife" has about as high-powered a cast as you are ever going to see again: Julianna Margulies, Chris Noth, Christine Baranski and Baltimore native Josh Charles. And with all four bringing their "A" games to the pilot, it looks as if CBS could have another winning 10 o'clock drama. Let's be clear, however, this is not an ensemble drama. As engaging and strong a presence as Noth, Charles and Baranski can each be, this series belongs to Margulies.

Renee Zellweger, she of the pillowy cheeks and preternatural lip-pucker, has made a bid for artistic integrity in "A Price Above Rubies," her first movie since she won audiences' hearts in "Jerry Maguire." In that film, she had all the makings of a contemporary Jean Arthur, meaning that her pertness was mellowed by her smarts and unaffected grace.None of that is in evidence in "A Price Above Rubies," not because she doesn't still have it, but because she's not supposed to. As Sonia, a young Orthodox Jewish woman who feels increasingly repressed by her religion's sexist moral strictures, she's supposed to be burning with repressed sexual heat.

"Traveller" ventures into darkly intriguing environs.Its subject is an intensely secretive Irish clan living deep in the damp woods of North Carolina. Piously observant of its own customs, the clan discourages contact with outsiders. The one acceptable reason for interaction with others is for the purpose of scamming them.The Travellers' business is the con. More problematic is romance.Directed by Jack Green, an accomplished cinematographer ("Twister," "The Bridges of Madison County"), the low-budget drama "Traveller" effectively evokes a generations-old subculture that exists just beyond the law and just above poverty.

Poisonous sarin gas is released in a London hotel, killing more than a dozen civilians. A terrorist cell, probably al-Qaida, is behind it and expected to strike again ... soon ... with a major attack in the subways of New York. The clock is ticking ... That's the set-up for The Grid, a new limited series premiering tonight at 9 on cable channel TNT. The six-hour, four-night series is structured along the lines of the 2003 Traffick miniseries (USA), which used whip-around storytelling to deal with drug smuggling, but its heaviest debt in subject matter, style and tone is to 24, the Fox action-drama starring Kiefer Sutherland as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer.

The final episode for George Clooney as Dr. Douglas Ross on "ER" last night wasn't nearly as moving as Jimmy Smits' departure from "NYPD Blue" in November through the death of his character, Bobby Simone.In fact, after all the buildup, Clooney's last hour on "ER" after almost five seasons with the hit series felt like a bit of a letdown. A long kiss for the teary-eyed Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) and a last lakefront chat with his best friend, Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), and Ross was off to a new job in Portland.

Orioles baseball will keep us from watching ice skating on CBS tonight (unless you can get Washington's Channel 9), so let's see what else is on"Friends" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Courteney Cox has had Tom Selleck for a love interest, Matthew Perry has had Julia Roberts (sort of) and David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston have had each other. This time, it's Lisa Kudrow's turn, and she's landed Charlie Sheen. And without having had to sign on with Heidi Fleiss! NBC."Living Single" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45)

There's way too much blarney in Evelyn, a treacly father's-rights diatribe that will leave you feeling as though every heartstring has been tugged 20 times over by the time the final credits roll. What makes the movie's failure to tone down the cheap sentiment even more egregious is that it's based on a true story, an Irish court case from 1953 that essentially gave single parents the right to keep their children and not have them end up in a Catholic orphanage far from home. The law that separated children from their parents was a moral outrage, and the trial that brought it down must have been a corker.

Where do TV doctors go to die? CBS, apparently."High Incident" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Marsh's daughter falls for an undercover narc at school, leaving Marsh (David Keith) fearful for her safety. ABC."Diagnosis Murder" (8 p.m.-9 p.m. and 9 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- A double-dose of Dick Van Dyke and Co., and neither's a repeat. In the first, "Diagnosis" cements its status as the series where old stars go to re-visit their careers, as a quintet of famous TV doctors shows up. One of them gets killed (I won't tell you which)
