And that led into on-the-fence CBS political drama “Madam Secretary” (#1: 3.6/ 7) leading the 10 p.m. hour, with an advantage over competing “Shark Tank” on ABC (2.6/ 5) and already renewed “Good Girls” on NBC (1.7/ 3) by 38 percent and 112 percent, respectively. The renewal for “Good Girls” is a result of the interest in the one-hour dramedy on Netflix.
