See Her Tonight
Melissa George on The Good Wife
(9 PM EST, CBS)
Yes, you’ve seen Melissa George recommended by the See Her Tonight column before—but that was when the built blonde was just beginning to regularly recur in her role as Chris Noth’s love interest on The Good Wife.

Melissa George–aka TheMGeorge on Twitter–has also kept things busy this year.

That probably means a lot more screen time for Melissa. It’s a nice recovery after her big-screen career didn’t pan out back at the end of the ’90s. That’s despite her appearances in fine films like the sci-fi saga Dark City and the classic indie The Limey, along with roles in David Lynch’s muddled masterpiece Mulholland Drive. We’re hoping that Hollywood will be tuning in tonight–but for now, let’s enjoy Melissa in another very good gallery …
