Scandal

No intro necessary at this point, I'm sure. 

Seems like a lot of you have been keeping up with the series, which I think has gotten better with each episode; now you can own it if you loved it that much, or if you haven't been keeping up with it, and would like to watch it on DVD.

Scandal season 1 will be released on DVD in a 2-disc set on June 12thset for $29.99. There's no mention of a Blu-ray release, although I'm sure that'll be coming as well, likely on the same date, or soon thereafter.

Also no word on extra features, if any.

You can preorder on Amazon right now, if you'd like. Click HERE to do so.

And as I noted in a past post... there are only 7 episodes this first season. That's right - this is all going to come to an end in 3 weeks! And I'm sure a lot of you are going to be suffering from Scandal withdrawal until the next season, whenever that will be.

It's telling that ABC hasn't renewed it for another season yet; the numbers, which aren't mindblowing, but, from all I've read, are steady: roughly 7 million viewers, taking the number 2 spot during that Thursday 10pm hour, behind CBS' The Mentalist, with about 11.9 million. Compare that to Shonda Rhimes' other ABC series, Grey's Anatomy, which comes on the hour before Scandal, with 9.7 million viewers.

I'm definitely curious about the audience make-up and how much cross-over there is; or how many Grey's Anatomy watchers are sticking around for Scandal right afterward.

But, by all accounts, Scandal should be in a good position for a renewal, as long as it remains steady throughout the rest of the season, with 3 episodes left. But ya never know, do ya?

Here's what the DVD cover will look like:
