Scandal Boom Goes the Dynamite Olivia

Scandal went from being a bubble show in season one to a big hit in season two. Tonight, it returns for its third season. Season two ended with several huge cliffhangers. The serialized show has been rerunning on BET all summer to potentially give new viewers a chance to catch up the way they do on Netflix for cable programs between seasons. ABC has done a lot of promotion and the legions of fans who have made the show a social media sensation have been hitting Twitter hard for weeks to make sure everyone on earth knows about it. Will all the hype pay off with a big premiere number? Last year, season two opened with a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. The season two finale garnered a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating, growing over its Grey’s Anatomy lead-in. So how do you think it will fare tonight?
