While the season of Madam Secretary drew healthy viewership, the demo ratings for the CBS series were far from impressive. Will they improve in season two? Will the TV show be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
On Madam Secretary, Elizabeth McCord (Tèa Leoni) is the shrewd and determined Secretary of State who drives international diplomacy. She battles office politics and circumvents protocol as she negotiates global and domestic issues, both at the White House and at home. The cast also includes Geoffrey Arend, Erich Bergen, Wallis Currie-Wood, Tim Daly, Kathrine Herzer, Željko Ivanek, Patina Miller, Bebe Neuwirth, and Evan Roe.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
3/25 update: CBS has renewed this series and 10 others for the 2016-17 season. Details here.
5/9 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

For comparisons: The first season of Madam Secretary averaged a 1.44 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 11.82 million total viewers.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like the Madam Secretary TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
I would why the person who plays madam Secretary
Wears the tham cloths if the show will the renewed
If it will haze a new season besides that characters
excellent I hope it will be renewed
Yes, I definitely think it should be renewed. However, losing Nadine is a great loss. She and Madam Secretary were one big plus. Real class those two. The rest of the cast is also great. All the cast compliments each other and fit well together. However, with the new addition you just added it will probably fail.
