MADAM SECRETARY
September 21, 2014  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 8:30 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: I’m very happy to see Téa Leoni back on television, and also glad to see CBS mount a political drama with such an outstanding cast – others in the mix here include Keith Carradine, Tim Daly and Bebe Neuwirth. But the script, at least in this pilot episode, is much less intelligent than its characters are supposed to be, so approach this with low expectations, but hopes for some rapid improvement in the writers’ room. For my full review on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, visit the Fresh Air website.
