Stats Spotlight - Will Scandal's Finale Tonight Break Series Records Again?? + Poll

(Check out my website, www.seriesmonitor.com

Last week's superb penultimate episode of the second season of Scandal simply demolished its previous series record for both ratings and audience. It earned a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating, and 8.87 million viewers. That's a 0.4 ratings increase on the previous ratings record, and almost 400,000 more viewers tuned in than for the previous audience record.

Last week's episode also out-rated its lead-in, Grey's Anatomy, by 0.1 of a ratings point, and fell just 100,000 viewers short of eclipsing Grey's Anatomy's 8.97 million viewer audience.

This season has seen a ratings average of 2.47 from the 21 episodes that have aired. This is incredible when you consider the fact that the first 7 episodes of the season only averaged a 2.04 rating. For the record, the last 14 episodes have averaged a massive 2.69 rating, which is an amazing increase when compared to such a quiet start to the season. A lot of this is down to ABC employing excellent marketing techniques, like the stunning Oscars promo, and increases in social media use, with Scandal being right up there with the most discussed shows in the US. Then there's the excellent storyline, superb acting, and the characters which are nothing short of fascinating

So the question for this poll is not what you think the rating will be, but whether or not you think Scandal will once again break its own series records. There are 4 options as you'll see below, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what your predictions are. Make sure you share your comments below, because there is bound to be plenty of those doing the rounds in peoples' minds!!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
