ABC Sets Season Finale Dates For Shonda Rhimes Dramas ‘Scandal’ & ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

ABC Sets Season Finale Dates For Shonda Rhimes Dramas 'Scandal' & 'Grey's Anatomy'

Via press release, ABC has announced season finale dates for the 2012-13 TV season, and I thought all you Scandal fans would like to know that the season finale for that series has been set for May 16.

No 2-hour finale like Revenge, however.

So get ready for Scandal-withdrawal until the fall.

There are 7 new episodes left this season, which returns with an all-new episode tomorrow, after 2 weeks of repeats. Those 7 episodes will be spread out over 9 weeks, which means there’ll be another 2 weeks of repeats sometime between this week, and the week of the finale.

Viewership is up overall, this season, compared to the first season, averaging just over 7 million per episode.

By the way, the other Shonda Rhimes series on ABC, Grey’s Anatomy, will also see its season finale on May 16.

Thank you so much for giving me a heads-up for the Scandal and Grey's Anatomy finales. Now the only challenge will be to not forget about it by the time May rolls around. I jotted down a reminder on my calendar in my office at DISH, but I still wouldn't put it past my slippery memory to forget anyways! At least I'm guaranteed to not miss these epic finales despite my forgetful mind, since my DISH Hopper DVR automatically records ABC's entire primetime lineup. I don't know how I'd stay up to date on these awesome shows without this feature!


I'll be so sad when Scandal goes off for the summer :(
