Early in last week's episode of "Scandal," Scott Foley's spy Jake Ballard finally lost his patience with the show's main character (and his ex-girlfriend), D.C. fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). He compared her to a plague, and asked, "How does someone as brilliant and accomplished as you not know what you are? Who you are?" It was a dynamite scene, in a "Scandal" season that's been full of them. At least once per week, and often more, the Shonda Rhimes-created drama will pair off two characters — say, Tony Goldwyn's arrogant President Fitzgerald Grant with his former chief of staff Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry), or Fitz with soon-to-be-ex-wife Mellie (Bellamy Young) — with a tangled, tragic mix of personal and professional history, and lets them tear each other into little tiny pieces over all their past sins. It's fantastic each time. "Scandal" is a fundamentally melodramatic show, where »

The "Leftovers" actor revealed some inside wedding details to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show today. The low-key ceremony in their backyard boasted a star-studded celebrity guest list, including DeGeneres and partner Portia de Rossi; Aniston's "Friends" alum Lisa Kudrow; John Krasinski and Emily Blunt; and officiant Jimmy Kimmel. Many of the guests were told that it was a birthday party for Theroux, which turned out to be "a massive miscalculation."
"Because we thought, like, we're gonna to tell some people this and some people that and then people that really have to that have busy schedules and whatever," he said. "So then afterwards, we kind of realized, like, that was a terrible plan, because you're basically telling half your guests, 'You're unemployed and we can't trust you, »

Last season, Scandal wasn't the top-rated drama on ABC any longer but it still did very well for the network. Will the series rise or fall in the rankings this time around? Could it possibly be cancelled or is it all but guaranteed to be renewed? Stay tuned.
On Scandal, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) defends the public images of the most powerful people in Washington but now it's her own image that needs protecting. This season, the cast also includes Scott Foley, Tony Goldwyn, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Guillermo Diaz, Cornelius Smith Jr., Jeff Perry, Portia de Rossi, Joshua Malina, and Bellamy Young.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- »
Scandal fans, are your jaws still on the floor after last week’s game-changing final moment? Would you vote for Olivia’s carefully measured, emphatic “Yes” as the single most satisfying word ever uttered in the history of Shondaland? While the latter question is up for debate (though I can’t imagine a more appealing alternative), there’s no denying Liv’s shocking, long-awaited public confession to being Fitz’s mistress has left plenty of highly entertaining carnage in its wake. Let’s recap, and then discuss!
In a late summer interview, showrunner Shonda Rhimes revealed that Season 5 of Scandal would mark the return of The Gladiators doing what they do best. If tonight’s action-packed season premiere is any indication, we’re in for some heavy-duty — and most welcome — gladiating in the weeks to come.
Of course, Shondaland is always teeming with seemingly limitless streams of crazy plot twists. We usually love them, mostly embrace them, and fully expect them. And because Season 4’s closer left so many in a world of hurt »
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the Season 5 premiere of “Scandal.”
“Scandal” came back in full force Thursday night with a doomed marriage, a depressed Gladiator, a rekindled relationship of presidential proportions and a royal scandal during the Season 5 premiere.
Goldwyn tells Variety what his ousted hookup means for his future as President, his future with Ms. Pope — plus, is that divorce really real?
Now that Fitz and Olivia have been outed to the public, where does their relationship go from here?
It’s exactly what Olivia says at the end of the premiere episode. She basically warns Fitz. She basically tells me I’m naive and as soon as the American people find out, »

It's been a long time since we saw Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) being Washington, DC's Hbic—like, Way too long—so it's understandable that you might have forgotten some of the bananas events that happened in the Scandal season four finale. The episode ended with Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia k-i-s-s-i-n-g, but before they got there—openly making out on a White House balcony!—a Lot of stuff went down. For example, before the makeout sesh, Fitz kicked Senator Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., along with his top adviser Cyrus (Jeff Perry), and installed Portia de Rossi's Elizabeth North. Oh, and Huck (Guillermo Diaz) murdered an entire room of »
