On "The Good Wife" Alicia's and Peter's teenager son Zack has been featured in the first episode of the new zeason. He's hardly a heart-stopper but he knows his way around all the features of the smartphone, including how to videotape. And that's what he does when the cop stops him on the highway, which gets him into even more trouble. Mom rushes to the rescue, including using Peter's influence.
Obviously, the show is pulling for younger demographics. But it might have considered that before it cast some plain-vanilla characters like Zack and Grace as the main attraction's children.
