Weekend TV: Madam Secretary Joins The Good Wife

Madam Secretary

Many observers will try to compare Elizabeth McCord, the fictional Madam Secretary (of State) winningly played by Téa Leoni, to Hillary Clinton — given the high-profile government cabinet position, and the hair color, and a Benghazi-like crisis by the second episode. But the real comparison to be made is with the show's Sunday night companion piece on CBS: The Good Wife, and that's where this well-meaning and generally entertaining Madam comes up a bit short.

Good Wife Bosses Won't Keep Killing People, Tease Alicia's Big Decision in Season 6

Julianna Margulies

Fans of The Good Wife can officially breathe easy. Ever since the acclaimed CBS drama killed off its male lead, Will Gardner (Josh Charles), six months ago in a shocking twist absolutely no one saw coming, the show's loyal following — aka #TheGoodWifeSupportGroup — have had to sleep with one eye open, fearful that in this post-Will Gardner world, nothing and no one is safe.

Mega Buzz: A Once Couple, Sleepy Hollow's New Threat, and an SVU Romance

Jennifer Morrison, Tom Mison, Mariska Hargitay

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says. "Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn't mean that that's the end of the story." And Emma may be the problem. "Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. "Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back."

What sort of monsters will Abbie and Ichabod face when Sleepy Hollow returns? — Andre
Remember how Judas was paid in silver to betray Jesus? What happens when someone in Sleepy Hollow literally gets their hands on the same silver? ... read more

Question: I'm a fan and read your column every week. I've watched the pilots for Forever and Red Band Society, and have added them to my list of shows I'll be watching. I hope they do well. I was wondering if you have seen them, and if so, what did you think? I found Red Band Society to be a feel-good show. I can't help but wonder, though, if it shouldn't be on a younger TV station like MTV, and the fact that it isn't makes me worry about its chances, as it is geared toward a younger audience. Forever is very Sherlock Holmes, which is right up my alley, and I love it whenever Ioan Gruffudd is on my TV screen. Do you think making the pilots available early hurts a TV show? What are your thoughts? - Carmelita

Mega Buzz: A Good Wife Crisis, a Castle Wedding and Homeland's Explosive Reboot

Julianna Margulies, Nathan Fillion, Claire Danes

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Is Diane actually going to join Florrick/Agos on The Good Wife? — Brenda
Alicia certainly wants her to, but she and Cary may not see eye-to-eye on that topic. Even so, things are set in motion for Diane's shift — she already has her story lined up for her clients and David Lee and Canning — until an unforeseen crisis not only puts that on the back burner, but also pits several characters against each other.

Will the Castle cliff-hanger be resolved early in the new season or strung out for ages? — 
New showrunner David Amann would like a little from Column A and a little from Column B.... read more

Question: I really enjoy your column and appreciate your insights. You've done well for me over the past few years, suggesting great shows that I really loved including Friday Night Lights, Lost, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Good Wife. I even watched the entire series of Fringe on Netflix based upon your recommendation. Now though, nothing looks that great for this coming fall. Can you tell me if there is something coming that is worth adding to my list? — Julie

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: You are probably going to get a lot of angry email about how Orange Is the New Black and True Detective didn't win any of the major Emmys. But I think they may have suffered from submitting in the wrong category, and some of the voters probably didn't want to get more viewers angry after letting both OITNB and True Detective submit in the wrong categories. So glad for Julianna Margulies' win for The Good Wife and Jim Parsons' win for The Big Bang Theory. But the biggest shock for me is Sherlock's three wins, couldn't be any happier. Which win/snub shocked you, and do you think OITNB and True Detective could have won more awards if they had submitted in the proper categories? — Aadil
