The Good Wife Gets in on the Muhammad-Depicting Action

Just a week after Muhammad's bear-suited appearance on South Park resulted in death threats for Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the Muslim prophet guested on CBS's The Good Wife last night, in an episode about a newspaper editor killed for publishing a cartoon in which the founder of Islam is held up at airport security. On the show, the cartoon was seen only in small pieces at a time, and never in full, which is presumably why no death threats have yet been reported. Still, it's officially a trend! Which show will tempt fate next by depicting Muhammad? Maybe he can replace Steve Carell on The Office.
