For the new fall season, CBS has gone and found a plausible sister show to pair with Julianna Margulies's The Good Wife.
Here, too, we have a sophisticated, 40-something actress (Téa Leoni) in a situation (the White House) that teems with smart, powerful adults who would humiliate you and reduce you to tears if you ever met them in real life.
The premiere episode of Madam Secretary, for the time being, suggests that the show is very much the little sister in this scenario – but then again, The Good Wife is the rare show that was letter-perfect even in its pilot.

Gambling-addicted police officer Nick Cavanaugh is a multifaceted character – a hero with a dark past and some serious issues. Tim Daly, who plays him on ABC's hostage thriller The Nine (Wednesdays, 10 p.m. ET), is no less complex. The New York City native is bouncing back with a hit after two failed series (2001's The Fugitive and last year's blinked-and-you-missed-it Eyes). And at 50, and after 24 years of marriage, he's still just as charming as when he first made it big in the '90s sitcom Wings. PEOPLE recently caught up with Daly for the scoop on The Nine, the secret to a long Hollywood match ("Don't get divorced!") and more.
