• Scandal fans aren’t so happy with ABC this morning. A number of them rallied and signed a Change.org petition to get the show on a regular schedule. Fans grew angry three weeks ago when the show went on hiatus after only airing a few new episodes. So far, more than 300 fans have signed the petition. However, show creator Shonda Rhimes snapped back at critics saying, “I am not responsible for when shows air. I do not have anything to do with the fact that we are not on for three weeks. #donttweetmeyourcrazy.” [EURweb]
