  16. Lorie says:

    Awesome news!

  17. Kelly says:

    Please renew BOP and I will be happy with all the networks!!! PLEASE PLEASE

  18. B says:

    Deadline is reporting a GCB cancellation, shame that they’re canning a show that has potential but it looks like it’ll be replaced with Nashville.

  19. anon o mouse says:

    Scandal is so watchable it’s hypnotic. And never expected the series to be quite this high quality. Also, perfectly cast, perfect lead couple.
    It is as if they merged the soap aspects of The Good Wife with West Wing. Shocked way more people aren’t watching. Not sure how ABC will grow it, but word of mouth should be helping. Just a stellar old fashioned soap done to perfectly.

    • sonja says:

      I had the exact same thought! The little meltdown the VP C of S reminded me of Josh. I still miss the West Wing and May 10th’s episode has me hooked!

  20. Russ says:

    Scandal is great I want to know more about these crazy characters!!!

  21. Elena says:

    Good show so wonder about the numbers. GA and PP fans miffed? They should be watching but whatever. But ABC and Rhimes have to remember……fans have long, long memories.

  22. Manie says:

    HELL YEAH!!!! That news made me scream like a maniac when I read it!!! GOOD ON YOU ABC!!! That show is CRAZY!!!!!

  23. Tania says:

    Scandal is the first Shonda Rhimes series that I enjoy. I’m glad that it has been picked up.

  24. Thilia says:

    They just need to change ABC to all Shonda all the time. Seriously, the woman has way too many shows on the air right now and Grey’s and PP are suffering because of it.

    • I wish Scandal had been canceled. First of all, I can’t stand lawyers. Secondly, they just about screwed Private Practice to give it a spot, which has been the strongest Shonda Rhimes series, with an AMAZING cast, a far better acting and plotline than the infantile Grey’s Anatomy crisis… It’s my favorite… It’s so unfair if they only give it 13 episodes for this crap.

      • Manie says:

        They are not lawyers, they are Gladiators in suit! :D (I couldn’t resist, but seriously, they are lawyers yes, but the show has nothing to do with that)

        • Zawadi says:

          Haha I LOVED you for that. And you’re right. They are lawyers, but it’s not a show about law it’s about crisis management and I can’t wait to have more of everyone’s personal lives and demons revealed

  25. Laura says:

    really really want another season of Private Practice….like Body of Proof too…bummed about GCB and TSC

  26. Margaret says:

    yes!!! so happy!!! also, note to Revenge, Scandal’s episode last night (AMAZING) is how you do a flashback episode! I was on the edge of my seat!

    • Olivia says:

      WOW! I totally agree with you. Those cliffhangers keep me wanting more. All my friends are talking about how they cannot wait to the next week.

  27. epjayprc says:

    So happy about scandal!!!

  28. llws88 says:

    Im so stoked for the Scandal team! ALL my shows have been renewed….Fall 2012 television….LEGGO!

  29. cuius says:

    Good news – pity the first season is so short – was a slow starter and is just getting into its stride

  30. bad kevin says:

    Guess Scandal has become a better Shonda Rhimes produced series than Off the Map.

  31. M says:

    Thank god! This weeks show was heartwrenchingly amazing.

  32. Simonea Q says:

    SCANDAL is the best show. It keeps you guessing & I love those not quite right characters that fit so well together. I prayed for this show to return because Scandal & Body of Proof are 2 non cable series I favor heck if ABC keeps this up I may tolerate commercial channels even more.

  33. Teresa says:

    great!!!!! I love this show

  34. Rach says:

    I Absolutly LOVE SCANDAL!!!! CaNT miss a single show!!! Just watched the finale n I’m pissed I dnt know when season 2 starts!!!! It left me hanging to bad!! WHEN IS IT COMING BCK! I’m addicted!

  35. DeAfricka McDaniel says:


  36. bbeyes says:

    Scandal is even better when you go back and watch the episodes a second time-either online or Prime Time on Demand. You pick upp on so many things you missed the first time.

  37. Sunshyne says:

    SCANDAL IS THE BEST SHOW, ever!!! I think that I’ve watched each episode at least ten time. Doesn’t even bore you. I love Fitzgerald and Olivia together. Such chemistry!!! Please renew.

  38. Sunshyne says:
