‘Madam Secretary’ episode 12: The reason behind waiting for new episodes

Over the past couple of months this fall, fans of CBS’ “Madam Secretary” have probably been spoiled in many ways by the avalanche of new episodes. With that in mind, we understand being a little bit bummed out that there is no new episode airing on the network tonight.

So what is the reason for dividing things up in such a way? The simple answer to that is keeping things fresh for the new year. There have already been eleven installments of this show to air, and no matter how you slice it, that is a pretty enormous chunk of the season. Thanks to this, there is really not much of a reason for the show to rush into airing more.

As a matter of fact, you can say that there not being any more episodes of “Madam Secretary” right now is a good thing. Why? If CBS was continuing to push out new episodes week after week, then it would mean that they were trying to burn off the show. They want it to be a larger part of the schedule, at least for now. Good news for Tea Leoni fans!

With all of this being said, there is still no definitive hope that the show is going to be renewed for another season. The ratings in terms of viewers are phenomenal, but the 18-49 numbers could use a little bit of work. The issue here is that as smart and as interesting as the show can be, it does not have that instant appeal when it comes to premise for young viewers.
