CBS Orders a Full-Season for 'Madam Secretary'


CBS has joined sibling CW in giving full-season orders to all of its fall series that have premiered so far: new dramas Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans, Madam Secretary and Stalker. The orders for the CBS TV Studios-produced Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleansand Madam Secretary are for 9 more episodes, bringing the total to 22 episodes each. It is unclear if Warner Bros. TV’s Stalker also received a full back 9 pickup.

CBS brass are happy with the performance of all four shows. NCIS: New Orleans has displayed better retention out of flagship NCIS than its predecessor in the Tuesday 9 PM slot, fellow NCIS spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles. NCIS: New Orleans and Scorpion also rank as the top two new fall series in total viewers, averaging 18.2 million and 15.2 million, respectively. Madam Secretary has been older skewing but packing viewership on Sundays, while Stalkerhas been improving its standing with a strong 56% DVR lift in Live+7. “These four shows have had an immediate impact on our schedule by improving nights, winning time periods and adding more hours of success across our primetime lineup,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment.
Madam Secretary is the most-watched scripted series on Sunday with 13.53 million viewers, a 45% time-period improvement. It averages 1.8 in adults 18-49. Téa Leoni, Tim Daly, Bebe Neuwirth, Željko Ivanek, Patina Miller, Erich Bergen, Geoffrey Arend, Kathrine Herzer, Evan Roe and Wallis-Currie Wood star. Madam Secretary is a CBS Television Studios production, in association with Revelations Entertainment.
