Anonymous asked: ABC has yet to formally announce Scandal’s renewal. Do you think this fact warrants being attributed any significance? Google is reporting that season 4 of Scandal will air in January 2015. In your opinion, is it reasonable that given the competitive environment, the Scandal hiatus be this long (almost 9 months)? If you are in a position to answer the questions, I would be grateful for your response.

Anon, ABC typically doesn’t do renewals until right before their upfronts. None of their shows have been renewed. I do not know anything about it returning in January 2015, however. IMO, that is way too long and people will find something else to watch by then. Scandal is not Mad Men, GoT or the Sopranos. 

It is not. The masses will move on and no amount of press will bring them back if Scandal comes back in January.

I disagree,  ABC could decide to push it back if for no other reason than football. Besides I wouldn’t underestimate what Scandal has in it’s arsenal for PR.  It just takes the right amount of exposure to bring an audience back.  American Horror Story has 9 month hiatuses as does Mad Men and a host of other shows.  While Scandal may lack the quality and the niche that AHS has they have something that no other show on television has.  All they have to do is use it the right way.  They have done in it the past and ratings went crazy….it wouldn’t take much. 

I totally disagree. What do you imagine Scandal has that no other show could emulate and well do better, which would not be hard?

You misunderstand me.  I am talking from a PR standpoint to bring back an audience that may not want to wait 9 months for it to come back. 

They only thing they could possibly promote to bring an audience in is Olitz. And SR has fucked that up so badly that even die-hard Olitzers have had enough. Could they try it? Sure. Sleepy Hollow is doing a long ass hiatus as do lots of these other shows. But none of them have had an entire season and a half of fuckery at its back that it would be returning from (except Mad Men from what I hear and their ratings I’m hearing are crap).

I have been saying this for the past few weeks and nikkisshadetree and ramblerthoughts can confirm it for you. TERRY SAVES ALL!  It will take very little to get people scrambling back.  Maybe not Tumblr folks but the causal viewer. The numbers that will keep the show on the air…will be there.  

Wait, are you saying you think Kerry and Tony’s real life situation and relationship is what could save Scandal and get some good publicity for the show?

I am saying the combination of Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn doing publicity for the show TOGETHER will get most of the audience back.  Will that be temporarily?  Probably.  Whatever their real life relationship is doesn’t change their combined magic.  That is all I am saying. 

Ahh, yeah. Never in all my TV watching years have I seen two leads of a show decline to do publicity together for so long. Two public appearances in almost 10 months? Mmkay!

That’s a whole other set of issues.  

Bolded but well I think we’re all sleeping.

This Is The War On Drugs (via “The House I Live In”)

A call to national conscience, the activist documentary “The House I Live In” is persuasively urgent. Directed with heart by Eugene Jarecki, the movie is an insistently personal and political look at the war on drugs and its thousands of casualties, including those serving hard time for minor offenses. It is, Mr. Jarecki asserts — as he sifts through the data, weighs the evidence and checks in with those on both sides of the law — a war that has led to mass incarcerations characterized by profound racial disparities and that has created another front in the civil rights movement. (via NY Times)

Here’s the thing, going into this film I KNEW our criminal justice system was messed up, but I didn’t expect to see politicians, judges and corrections officers chiming in and demanding that the system change. THAT was incredibly eye opening for me and all the more reason that more people need to see this film. If you haven’t seen it already, “The House I Live In” is currently available for rent and instant streaming on Netflix. And if you don’t have Netflix, you’re in luck because April is officially the last month I’m able to offer my followers a free month subscription through netflix.com/chescaleigh

J’ai vu ça scandalousbazinga “le candidat fantôme” comme ils ont dit

MDRRRR c’est n’importe quoi, en plus les gens ont vraiment voté pour lui, c mm pas de la fraude

Beh avec 51% de participation :/

mdrrr 51% c’est pour le prestige, moi je regardais en directe et c’etait dans les 35% de taux de participation lol

Tu sais que c’est quasi le taux de réussite au bac dans les écoles suivant le régime de l’état au Maroc? :D HAHAHAHA

OMG vous avez 35% de taux de réussite ?? nous c’est 52% en moyenne … mais a Alger c’est 88% a peut près 

Ça dépend de l’école où tu vas si c’est privé forcèment le taux est beaucoup plus haut que les écoles publiques. Mon lycée c’était un peu un camp de concentration super strict and co mais le taux était de 100%

haha pareil mon Lycée etait a 100% en plus c’etait un lycée spéciale filles lol

Haha la classe ! Y en a surement à Casa aussi

that makes sense

I guess the showrunners have been hanging out for Shonda … she’s a master in character assassination.

I can understand they don’t want to stand near her craziness

"Maybe we… We should probably get back to work."

Never saw this episode of Boston Legal with Kerry and James Spader. But had the pleasure of seeing them together on Broadway in Race.

Her character here, Chelina Hall, was awesome. She was supposed to be on for more eps and actually go forward with a r’ship with Spader’s character but then she went off to make a movie. Sigh. What could have been.

Um….the aging process her is odd.

My doc friends said the same thing.

I wonder how he was affected so fast but since it was Jerry, I didn’t care too much.

yep the death seemed too unrealistic to me .. it wasn’t well done at all

It made no sense plus the way his ass was sneezing up in there, I thought hell is this going to be another Outbreak. Only in Shondaland can a person with a contagious disease send it airborne but no else catches it.

Word, and meningitis is HIGHLY contagious. They should have just gone about it another way. It just shows that they don’t care enough to do a semblance of research. They could have easily gotten one of the medical consultants from Greys to tell them something more plausible. Or, like I said it another thread, they could have made it so Tom injected him days prior.

The should have just poisoned him!!  Would have been more simpler and poisons would kill instantaneously.

Smh

Scandal never consults anyone, even Judy smith and that’s the biggest probleme .. every other show has consultants

Wait…Wait… This woman (SR) runs a Doctors show (Grey’s) and had the nerve to insert mess like this on Scandal as if others would not notice? Serously? OMG. This is now funny. She really does think the Scandal audience is now stupid. I had enough with her writing all together. 

"No logic" that should be her motto
