  1. Big mistake renewing the catch. Immediately losing 50% of Grey’s lead in doesn’t bode well for next season. Although Scandal struggled its first season and then jumped in its 2nd season so I guess anything’s possible

    • Totally agree this was one of the many renewals this year made by any network that puzzles me because this show is a straight loser that will never catch on no pun intended. The show is a failure for Shonda and whenever it comes back next year it’s gonna get killed.
