Kerry Washington hit series “Scandal” has scored its highest ratings ever with its season three premiere on Thursday night.
The ABC drama, delivered 10.5 million viewers and 3.6 rating among adults 18-49. The rating is a 71% increase percent from its season two premiere in 2012. It also rose 13% from the episode before, season two’s finale which previously held the title for highest rated episode.
Regarding social media activity – where the series, its cast and crew set the standard: The Scandal premiere delivered 712,877 tweets, which is the show’s highest social delivery to date and stood as the #1 most social series on Thursday night.
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.
