It's official: AMC dominated the 2013-14 television season -- at least on Twitter.
Nielsen Social released a data report on Monday analyzing the shows, specials and moments that reached the biggest Twitter audiences and engaged fans at record levels in the U.S. this season, from Sept. 1, 2013 through May 25, 2014.
The prolific producer has inked a new four-year overall deal to remain with the studio through May 2018, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Rhimes and producing partner Betsy Beers' Shondaland banner is behind the network's two most valuable series -- veteran Grey's Anatomy and red-hot drama Scandal. Both were renewed last week for their 11th and fourth seasons, respectively.
Comedy Central's Friday announcement that Larry Wilmore would take over the time slot previously occupied by Stephen Colbert with his new Minority Report caps a major week for black leads on the small screen.
ABC capped off its Shondaland night Thursday with prolific showrunner Shonda Rhimes taking center stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

ABC's political thriller Scandal closed up its third season Thursday with a heart-racing hour that focused on Election Day, as President Fitzgerald Grant looked to lock up four more years in the White House and prevail over his vice president and opposition, Sally Langston, while OPA teamed with B613 to bring down a terror ring led by Olivia's mother.
During season three of ABC's hit show Scandal, a montage scene closes out the eighth episode, "Vermont Is for Lovers, Too," where we see a gruesome murder. Then one of the show's main characters, Huck (Guillermo Diaz), insinuates he's going to torture his colleague Quinn (Katie Lowes), and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) sees her long-lost mother moments before the credits flash.
Scott Foley finds his Scandal alter ego, Jake, stuck between a rock and a hard place during Thursday's season-three finale.
