Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton.

Shonda Rhimes has not one, not two, but three hit shows on the air right now – and they're all on the same night!

"I don't think there is any sort of formula to it," Rhimes modestly tells PEOPLE of her success. "I just try to make something I would want to watch."

And that's exactly what happened to Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope – or as she'd rather be known on the lam, Julia Baker – in Thursday's season premiere of Scandal.
