The Heart-Pounding Sensuality Of Public Radio Enlivens 'The Good Wife'

Julianna Margulies in The Good Wife

Don't look so surprised, Julianna Margulies. We already knew that Bob Mondello's review of Catfish was sexy. David M. Russell/CBS hide caption

So last night on CBS's second-season premiere of The Good Wife, stars Julianna Margulies and Chris Noth participated in one of the most explicitly suggestive (even though no skin is shown) sex scenes I've ever seen on broadcast television.

But that's not the surprising part.

The surprising part is that the equivalent of the chicka-wocka sexy music you might expect to hear in the background was replaced by the sound of All Things Considered. Apparently, ATC is the Earth, Wind & Fire of fictional politicians.

Now, I'm going to embed the clip, because we're all grown-ups here, and it aired on CBS (the Tiffany network!), so it's not that dirty. But if you like your love scenes on the demure side, I highly recommend that you emphatically do not go to the 3:10 mark.
