Tea Leoni in Madam Secretary

Madam Secretary

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.

Madam Secretary: Tea Leoni and female guest star

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.
