ABC is hoping to keep its momentum as the network with compelling and must watch dramas. Last season the country couldn't get enough of the provocative drama “Scandal,” from “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes. The series follows Washington, D.C. political fixer Olivia Pope and the members of crisis management firm. Together they fix the problems of the movers and shakers in the nation’s capital. No case it too big for Olivia to handle, whether a decorated war hero who is afraid to come out as gay when he’s faced with murder charges or the kidnapping of a diplomat’s infant son by the Russian mob.
Last season saw Olivia, a former White House Press Secretary carry on an affair with the President of the United States, helped conspire to prevent the Vice President from removing a comatose Commander and Chief from office and an attempt on her life apparently arranged by none other than her cloak and dagger father played by Joe Morton. Season three should open to the fact that everyone now knows that Olivia is the President’s mistress.
So what other shows are worth watching this season on ABC?
