One of my favorite CBS show is The Good Wife and the writers have finally let us viewers know that Alicia is an atheist and she's running for state attorney. They really represented what its like running for a political office as an atheist. She had to have a interview with a priest once and of her campaign manager, Eli Gold, told her not to mention anything about her atheism because it could hurt her and she basically told the priest she was an agnostic, lol.

Her daughter plays as a Christian and she's part of a cult like group, its very weird and they pray that her mother, Alice, to come to God. Haha.

Its an awesome show and finally a show that has an atheist as a main character..its a nice treat.

The actor that plays Eli Gold, Alan Cumming is an atheist. So that's interesting.

But what is funny is when people found out that Alicia is an atheist, they stopped watching the show because of that..narrow minded people. Like religious people don't have their time to shine on TV.

Another show which has discussed atheism as being a good thing was NBC's The Blacklist..another fantastic show. Totally check it out.

What have been your favorite atheist moments on TV? You don't see it often, but I'm seeing it more often and I think its going to get better and getting atheism out there in the public eye more and more can only be a good thing and people wont be so offended by the word "Atheist".

Almost any episode of House. Hugh Laurie is an atheist and so was his character and him mocking religion in the show was just so entertaining.
