Scandal: Season Three Episode Order Cut

Scandal episodesThere won’t be as much Scandal this season. ABC has reduced their episode order for the Thursday night drama from 22 to 18 installments.

No reason for the reduction has been given but it seems likely that it may be connected to star Kerry Washington’s real-life pregnancy.

Fans of the show shouldn’t be worried about the show’s chances for a fourth season renewal. Year-to-year, Scandal is up by nearly 22% in the ratings. Almost all of the network’s other veteran shows are down.

What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be as many episodes this year? Are you still a fan?

    This is the most mind blowing series I have ever seen. You fall off your seat onto the floor from the suspense of every episode. Never a dull moment!!!

    Glad to hear the show has not been cancelled it seemed a lot of stuff was happening in the final show of the season that lead me to believe the show might not be back for a 4th season.

    No problem if the show has fewer episodes. We shall wait patiently until she returns for the next season and it will be well worth the wait.
