'Scandal' Surges To New Series High! So What's Up w/ A Season 3 Renewal?
3
Scandal Season 2

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

ABC finished #2 on Thursday in Adults 18-49 for the 2nd week in a row, as Scandal and Grey's ranked as the night's Top 2 dramas for the 3rd week running in Adults 18-49

ABC was up year to year on Thursday for the 2nd week in a row in Adults 18-49 (+9%).

· Building on its Grey's lead-in, Scandal hit a new series high in Adults 18-49, spiking 23% week to week and surpassing its previous high by 14%.

· Scandal is on track to rank as TV's #1 drama for the 2nd time in 3 weeks and delivered the highest rating for any regular 10 o'clock drama telecast on any net in 7 months - since 10/15/12.

· Continuing to post big year-to-year gains, Scandal shot up 68% in Adults 18-49 from its telecast on the same night last year.

· Scandal out-delivered Idol-Thursday in Adults 18-49 for the first-time ever.
