ABC Entertainment: STOP PUTTING SCANDAL ON HIATUS - PICK UP MORE EPISODES

      Tallahassee, FL

There are very few TV shows on prime time television written by, much less starring people of color. The broadcast networks have made great strides in recent years by diversifying the faces we see on prime time TV however there is more that can be done. Putting a show like Scandal on repeated hiatus is a surefire way to lose fans and viewers.

Gladiators/Scandalistas/Scandalists everywhere have not gotten over our initial shock that there will be no Scandal AGAIN for 3 more weeks. Instead of whining and complaining, we are doing something about it! Shonda Rhimes is NOT the reason there's another hiatus. It's the TV execs at Disney/ABC Television Group. Let your voices and displeasure be heard by contacting Anne Sweeney, the President of ABC Entertainment at

Anne Sweeney, President
ABC Entertainment
500 S. Buena Vista St
Burbank, CA 91521-4551
(818) 560-1000 or
(212) 456-7777 (fax)

Or send her a nice little profanity free email at Anne.X.Sweeney@abc.com. Let her know how unhappy we all are and maybe, just maybe they'll pick up enough episodes that we Gladiators won't have to be on hiatus AGAIN against our will. So bombard ABC with your unhappiness by emailing, calling, faxing etc. Mount up Gladiators! Mount up!

STOP PUTTING SCANDAL ON HIATUS - PICK UP MORE EPISODES. The show just recently won the TV Guide 2013 Fan Favorite Award, which proves that devoted fans are out there.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      'Scandal' fan protests week-long breaks

      At least one die-hard "Scandal" fan has had enough of the week-long breaks between shows, and has decided to do something about it. T. R. Mason from Tallahassee, Fl., started a petition in hopes of persuading ABC to stop the drawing out the drama and airing "Scandal" only a few times a month.

      It's the best show going right now ,It's the one show I look forward to watching every week. It already seems long enough waiting for the following week to come for it be back on , a 3 week break is just to long , I love the plot , I love the Scandal. Please stop with the 3 week breaks we fans need it every week & twice a week if possible! #TrueScandalFan

      my whole world revolves around scandal and although i will always remain a loyal fan, i want to see the show succeed and i don't think long breaks in-between episodes will keep others interested long enough to see 'scandal' become the FORCE that all true gladiators want it to be.
