Be sure to read Natasha's recap of last night's loaded episode, posted earlier this morning HERE.
With 1 more episode to go before the season ends, ABC is sure taking its time to announce whether the show will be renewed for a third season. I mean, of course it will, right? With these almost weekly ratings records...
If it's not, I pity the execs running the network. The force is strong with the Gladiators! I know, because I've felt it!
Last night's numbers via press release from ABC below:
ABC's "Scandal" Surges to a New Series High as TV's Top 10pm Drama Telecast in 7 Months
