Olivia Pope’s shenanigans debuted at No. 2 right behind The Big Bang Theory and before Grey’s Anatomy – a cushy spot to be in – reeling in 10.5 million viewers, IndieWire announced.
These are the largest figures that Scandal has ever pulled; season one grabbed 7.3 million viewers while season two dipped down to 6.7 million viewers.
It gets better! The ABC drama series was No.1 on social media. On Thursday, the premiere fueled the largest influx of tweets in Scandal history: 712,877 postings about the show on Twitter!
With these stats, some critics — like the writer at Indie Wire — agree that Kerry Washington will remain on screen for a while. “[W]hile I’d posit that the series’ audience comprises heavily of black women, I’m sure there are also quite a few non-black white women (and men) who tune in as well,” the site says. “I won’t be surprised if ABC announces, before the season is over, that Scandal has been renewed for a 4th season, with numbers like this, that only seem to continue to improve.”
Other critics, including an African-American writer at The Washington Post, see Scandal as a twitter sensation—but not award-worthy material. “‘Scandal’ is not brilliant,” the paper says. “It’s a mostly watchable, sometimes painfully acted nighttime soap opera with lots of suspenseful music dubbed over the dramatic bits, and that’s a perfectly acceptable thing for it to be. But Emmy material? Err, folks, are we watching the same thing.”
Whatever. What’s your take on the Season 3 premiere of Scandal?

What do you think? Will you watch?
Last night, VH1 kicked off it’s third season of “Love & Hip-Hop NY” and let’s just say there was plenty of recklessness to go around. Mona Scott-Young and the cast set a new record for the number of drinks thrown in one episode, let alone the first one. And we wouldn’t be surprised if viewers already picked out cast favorites and pinpointed a few shady characters they could do without this season (*cough Raqi*). Check out everything that went down in episode 1 in our reckless reality recap.
So How Does That Work? Erica Mena Tells MN She Doesn’t Want To Be A Role-Model — Even Though She’s A Mother
By now, Erica Mena has generated more than enough publicity for her stunts with supposed boyfriend Rich Dollas, but Madame Noire is more concerned with another man in her life — her son. When we caught up with the “Love & Hip-Hop NY” cast member at the Season Premiere last week, she had tons to say about her new relationship, but when it came to questions over her suspect behavior — like fighting girls, throwing drinks, and slobbing down her new boo on camera — Erica was quick to say she’s nobody’s role model. But with a little boy at home, we couldn’t help but ask, how does that work?
Check out our exclusive above to hear what she had to say.
