To say Shonda Rhimes is one of Hollywood’s biggest shots would be an understatement. She’s nearly running things in TV land. She has a major network depending on her. ABC wouldn’t be raking in ratings and beaucoup advertising dollars without Rhimes’ hit shows.

“The network’s #TGIT-branded Thursday night lineup featuring Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get the Way with Murder broke a record in ratings during November sweeps,” reports Jezebel.

When the three series aired their winter finales last week–answering the burning question to who killed Sam–the trio had great ratings.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Grey captured 8.3 million viewers and a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating; Scandal pulled in with 10 million and a 3.1 rating; and 9.8 million people tuned into HTGAWM and had a 3.1 rating. HTGAWM saw an increase of seven percent from the previous week.

ABC has won all four Thursdays in the adult demo during the November “sweeps” period, thanks in major part to Rhimes. The network hasn’t achieved that feat in at least 23 years.

Who could have predicted that Bill Cosby would be one of the biggest scandal makers of 2014? We can’t predict what’s going to happen to Bill’s career, but we have been keeping track of these other celebrities who’s careers were rocked by serious scandals.

Last night ABC aired its TGIT Winter finales and we.were.floored. Between Olivia beefing with both of her parents on “Scandal” (yes mama Pope is back) and finding out #WhoKilledSam, we were all saying “dis tew much!”

We don’t want to give away too many spoilers in the write up, but we have a few lingering questions about what’s going to happen with Olivia Pope when “Scandal” returns and we must get to the bottom of Sam’s murder and figure out who the real mastermind behind his death is. Watch the editors discuss the episode in the video above and weigh in on the finales in the comments section. What did you think?

 

Does She Have What It Takes To Be A Gladiator? Rihanna Wants To Guest Star On “Scandal”

Like many other avid television watchers, Rihanna is a big “Scandal” fan. So much so, that she dreams of guest starring on the Shonda Rhimes-driven series someday.

“I love Scandal! Are you kidding?” RiRi told E! News.

“We’ll see,” she said at the idea of starring in the series. “I would love that. I just love Scandal, period.”

She’s not too sure what her ideal role would be, but she wouldn’t mind playing an enemy of Olivia Pope or Secretary of State.

“Duh!” she laughed at the idea. “That’s amazing. Let’s make it happen!”

Last week during a visit to the White House, the “Stay” singer posed for a photo in the press room pretending that she was “Scandal” White House Press Secretary Abigail “Abby” Whelan.

“#heyAbby,” she captioned the photo.

It seems that Shonda is pretty selective about who she allows to guest star on her shows, so we won’t hold our breath waiting for a RiRi feature. It also seemed that Ri was joking about appearing on the show; but hey, stranger things have happened.

With all the betrayal going on during last night’s episode of “How To Get Away With Murder,” we’re still asking #WhoKilledSam — although we have a few new theories after last night’s crazy episode. Anyone else completely over Sam and Bonnie at this point?

And are y’all as scared for Olivia’s life as we are after Daddy Pope read her from top to bottom and front to back during “Scandal”? Poor baby. Chime in with us to talk about the episodes and let us know what you think will go down during next week’s winter finales. It’s #TGITea time!

Spoiler Alert: Guess Who's Coming Back To "Scandal"

Are y’all ready for a a spoiler alert? Khandi Alexander, Marie Wallace, aka Mama Pope is coming back to our Thursday night obsession, “Scandal.”

I’m sure for some of you, most of you this comes as no surprise at all. Habeas corpus– produce the body. Since we never saw Mama Pope’s corpse and Daddy Pope was looking at her in the hole he put her in, it was only a matter of time before she reemerged. Furthermore, I’m convinced that the Mama and Daddy Pope are working together. And the two of them are about to tear some stuff up.

Either way, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Marie Wallace is set to appear on the midseason finale, which is set to air on November 20.

Coincidentally, the episode will be directed by Tony Goldwyn, aka President Fitzgerald Grant, who once believed Mama Pope was responsible for killing his son.

Interesting.

Though I’m a little bummed the surprise has been ruined, I cannot wait to see how they reveal her this time around. You know Momma Pope usually makes a dramatic entrance.

The Scandal 407 Recap

I thoroughly enjoyed “Scandal” last night. I experienced so many different emotions watching the episode. Frustration, sadness, validation, and even some happiness. And then there was this beautiful, beautiful moment when Olivia checked Fitz’s misogyny when he called Abby a bitch for basically calling him out on his foolish and brutish treatment of Jake.
