Madam Secretary Sneak Peek: Elizabeth Talks Football With NFL Today's JB

Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord is at ease in just about every situation, from pacifying volatile foreign heads of state to — as it turns out — talking football with professional sportscasters.

Need proof? Check out this exclusive clip from Sunday’s Madam Secretary (CBS, 9/8c), in which Elizabeth manages to draw parallels between President Dalton’s “historic third-party run” and an historically huge shift in gridiron rules.

The exchange takes place with NFL Today host James Brown (aka JB) in advance of a big game — and let’s just say that Elizabeth knows exactly which team to root for to win some Cleveland love. After all, she’ll need it; Dalton needs to get on the ballot in Ohio.

Elsewhere in the episode, per the official release: “After a bombing at a political rally in Angola, Elizabeth must find a way to respond to a ‘dissent memo’ from the Bureau of African Affairs when they criticize the Dalton Administration’s lack of attention to the upcoming Angolan election” and “Henry and Jose get closer to locating the antiquities stolen by Hizb al-Shahid.”

Press PLAY on the video above to see MadSec and Brown talk pigskin, then hit the comments: Do you think all of these efforts will end with Dalton staying in the Oval Office?

    I so enjoy this show, especially since it seems to be not only about Elizabeth and Henry’s jobs but their deep family commitment. Heck I even like Russell this year but I couldn’t stand him the first season. Also because it is a tv show, I’m sure that Dalton will remain in the White House.

    Of course Dalton will win another term unless Keith Carradine wants to leave the show. It could even be as the candidate of his own party. All highly unlikely in the real world, but not with a bit of Hollywood magic.

    The last thing I ever want to watch is a political drama, *especially* this year, but I never miss Madam Secretary. That’s mostly because Téa Leoni is so good. I like that the show takes the home life stuff seriously and the relationships between Elizabeth and Henry and the parents and kids seem genuine. I always like the dialog on the show, too. Sharp and sometimes very funny.

    Love this show. Even Mike B.

    I’ll chime in to say praise for this show too. I love Madam Secretary. I like the family interactions just as much as the Secretary of State office stuff. I avoid most political shows and specials this year, but still find Madam Secretary enjoyable. Hope it continues entertaining fans on TV for a while.
