Ellen Gray's weekend TV picks

* THE GOOD WIFE. 9 p.m. Sunday, CBS3.

Series creators Robert and Michelle King wrote this game-changing episode, which deals at last with the consequences of the decision Alicia (Julianna Margulies) made in last season's finale, to leave Lockhart/Gardner and help start a new firm. Still some of the best TV being made for adults, "The Good Wife" manages to make a corporate breakup as exciting as any zombie apocalypse.

* ROSEANNE HALLOWEEN MARATHON. 3-6 a.m. Saturday and 3-6 p.m. Sunday, TV Land.

Here's one for the DVR: As "Roseanne" celebrates its 25th anniversary this month, TV Land holds a two-day mini-marathon of the series' signature Halloween episodes, starting off with one guest-starring George Clooney (most likely from his Bad Hair era).

  • Drexel students get degree in TV sitcomery
  • * MASTERS OF SEX. 10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.

    Showtime's just renewed "Masters of Sex" for a second season (and "Homeland" for a fourth), which likely means the show will make it to the swinging '60s next year. But for now we're in the 1950s, where sex researchers William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) are expanding their study to include couples.

    * SPARTACUS. 10:05 p.m. Saturday, Starz.

    Because Starz misses "Spartacus" - and its ratings - nearly as much as its fans do, it's rerunning the entire series, beginning with "Blood and Sand," on Saturdays, immediately following the latest installment of its miniseries "Dancing on the Edge."
