FOX / Eric Leibowitz

Julianna Margulies takes center stage tonight as a fast-talking, rule-breaking attorney in the new drama "Canterbury's Law" (8 p.m. EDT on Fox). Of course we loved Margulies as nurse Hathaway on "E.R." and more recently as Tony's lover on the last season of "The Sopranos," and she's certainly on fire here, bringing the nasty, condescending tone of Nancy Grace to her toughest battles. So it's too bad they didn't give her character some other profession -- anything that will keep us from watching the same overdramatic courtroom scenes over and over again. Let's see ... Canterbury's Dog Grooming Service?
