If these week-to-week gains continue, I'd say a 3rd season is probably in the cards for Shonda Rhimes' sophomore political fixer drama Scandal. Details via press release from ABC: ABC's "Scandal" Gains 11% Week to Week to Hit a Season High Info on ABC's Thursday, ahead of the regular press release. ABC finished #2 on Thursday night in Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54 and across all key Women demographics (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54). During the 8 o'clock hour against CBS' top-rated comedies (The Big Bang Theory/Two and a Half Men) and Fox's The X Factor Results Show, ABC freshman Last Resort outdrew NBC's established comedies (30 Rock/Up All Night) by 2.5 million viewers and tied among Adults 18-49. One of the biggest percentage gainers via time-shifted playback for any 8pm show this season, ABC's Last Resort adds on 2.3 million viewers and shoots up by an impressive 53% (+0.9 rating) in Adults 18-49 from the next-day L+Sd numbers. »
