So here’s your first look at Scandal, the mid-season ABC show produced by Shonda Rhimes, starring Kerry Washington, with Columbus Short. Will all our hopes and dreams be realized? We’ll have to wait and see.

However, I can say without contradiction that I’ve never ever seen one episode of any show Rhimes has produced; but I think I’ll be checking this one out because it stars Kerry Washington and because… it stars Kerry Washington. That’s enough for me.
