After Private Practice ended its run in January, Rhimes' Scandal earned an Emmy nom for star Kerry Washington, helping to fuel record ratings for the show's third season. In season three, Scandal is up 57 percent among adults 18-to-49. The series is closing the gap with its lead-in, 10-year-old Grey's, still ABC's top drama in 18-to-49. There's a book deal and a film coming too.
