    I see people getting mad b/c other people want shows to die off

    Why do people hope some shows die?

    Answer: people hope some shows DON’T make it, so their shows thrive or stays on the air…

    Also some push “political” or “lifestyle agendas” that we don’t need pushed on us.

    That’s why.

    This will probably be my last post on this subject. The proof is in the pudding. Scandal is written on the real life person Judy Smith, who worked for 1st President George Bush, which people are tuning in to see this character. You may not beleive it, but Shondaland and ABC knows it. All of the cast members are great and deliver good scenes, but there is no way this show would survive without Kerry’s portrayal of Olivia Pope.

    Maybe you and I don’t read or watch the same media outlets, but I’m constanly seeing and reading on a daily basis newspaper articles, fashion magazines, and talk show interviews, both in the United States & Europe with Kerry speaking about her character Olivia Pope. This doesn’t take away from any of the other actors or actresses on the show and what they deliver. Thia cast seems to suppport and admire each other, so if one person is successful they all are.

    This young and intelligent actress has done all of the leg work within the last year and a half to help promote this program as the lead actress and has garnered it great success. You take Kerry out of this program, based on a real life person, the show would not survive and that would be a Scandal.

    The Crazy Ones does well because Sean Saves the World is poopoo. It relies on Robin Williams ex jokes, which just look embarrassing, considering they are just daggers at his ex-wives in real life. Almost as embarrassing as Thursday Night tv in general.
