Christine Baranski performed a Good Fight-themed song on The Late Show

These days, so many TV shows have the word “good” in their title. The Good Doctor, The Good Place, Tony Danza and Josh Groban’s forthcoming Netflix show The Good Cop. Thankfully, The Good Fight‘s Christine Baranski has a song that makes a strong case for why her CBS All-Access show, a spin-off of The Good Wife, is the “Good” show that deserves your time.
When the Broadway vet dropped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night, Colbert asked her to image the possibility of a Good Fight musical. Because this is a late night TV show, Baranski immediately broke out into a song that explained why we all need her character Diane Lockhart in our lives.
“On the mean streets of Chicago, the brutal windy city/Sometimes you need a lawyer when things don’t look so pretty,” she began singing. “Someone in your corner to stand up for what it right/You need a Diane Lockhart fight in your good fight.”
She continued: “It isn’t The Good Doctor. It isn’t The Good Place/It’s different from The Good Wife, but it still has my face/Because you loved me on that show for seven years/They gave me my own spin-off just like Frasier after Cheers.”
If Baranski’s face isn’t enough to convince you to tune into her “stirring legal drama,” the lyrics also make sure to tease the forthcoming episode about impeaching President Donald Trump.
Watch the glorious musical number above.
The Good Fight returns March 4 on CBS All-Access. New episodes will be released each week on the streaming service.
