Case dismissed

Parting is such sweet sorrow, Kalinda. The season finale of "The Good Wife" will mark the departure of Emmy winner Archie Panjabi, although I'm guessing the producers will leave the door open a crack for guest appearances. Panjabi has been the epitome of coolness, even if the writing has sometimes led her astray. (Abusive ex-husband? We never bought it.) While we may be losing one of TV's most fascinating characters, it's nice to know that Michael J. Fox will stop by to reprise his role as Alicia's most cunning legal opponent. "Wife" has continued to be great television because it has been consistently willing to reinvent itself, but sometimes it's nice to visit with some old friends. 8 p.m. Sunday, WCCO, Ch. 4

Anchors aweigh

Tom Brokaw goes on PR patrol with appearances on "Live With Kelly and Michael" (9 a.m. Monday, KSTP, Ch. 5) and "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" (10:35 p.m. Monday, KARE, Ch. 11). Let's see just how much he'll say about his fallen colleague, Brian Williams.

Talking points

One of the many great things about "Inside Amy Schumer" is the host's sit-down interviews with those who may appear to walk on the wild side, including a gigolo in this week's episode. Schumer's nonjudgmental approach makes for fascinating chatter. 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Comedy Central

While we're young

One Direction makes its first U.S. concert appearance since Zayn Malik left the blockbuster group on "The Late Late Show With James Corden." Don't be surprised if the multitalented host becomes a temporary member of the boy band. 11:35 p.m. Thursday, WCCO, Ch. 4
