Madam Secretary has been killing it in the ratings. Despite ever-changing start times due to holidays, events and games, there has been a solid uptick in the CBS Sunday profile in Fall 2014.
It passes the “Bechtel Test” every time: that is, two women speak to each other about something other than a man. (Run this test on other programming and see just how rare it is! Then, drink because of just how rare that is.)
I watch this show for 50% females in power and 50% Tim Daly. Bebe Neuwirth plays a complicated professional woman as well. Patina Miller, everyone! And I think Morgan Freeman co-produces this series.
Bonus: If you watch this show for Tim Daly too, you’ll like “The Daly Show” on Youtube, seasons 1 and 2.
