The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
Rhimes, 43, and Beers, 55, oversee two of ABC’s most important dramas in veteran Grey’s Anatomy — still the No. 1 scripted drama in the demo after a decade — and the third-year sensation Scandal. The fast-paced political fixer drama starring Emmy nominee Kerry Washington returned to a series high Oct. 3 in total viewers and in the adult 18-to- 49 demographic, up 71 percent year-over-year, turning millions of tweets and strong buzz into a bona fide hit. Scandal is even outpacing lead-in Grey’s, which will bid farewell to original castmember Sandra Oh at season’s end.
