Go Scandal! ABC’s soap continued its gravity-defying ratings ascent this season, leaping 23 percent this week to its best rating ever. Scandal had 8.9 million viewers and a 3.2 rating at 10 p.m., easily squashing rivals. In fact,Scandal beat every broadcast show Thursday night except CBS’ comedy block power duo ofBig Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men. Scandal is on track to rank as TV’s No. 1 drama for the second time in three weeks. ABC is set to announce its fall schedule next week. I wonder if Scandal will be the show that finally replaces Grey’s as the network’s 9 p.m. anchor on Thursdays?
Other than the side-eye worthy word use of “soap” there, was there ever any FURTHER questions that Scandal continues to dominate ratings wise?
