Scandal Season 5 Episode 12 recap No, really. Stop sleeping with him then. One of the things that’s great about this show is that they’re very straightforward about sex-is-power, and this episode had that well-underlined. Everyone is sleeping with someone else for power, to get them where they need to go. Full Story

After 10 days of #OscarsSoWhite, Shonda Rhimes accepted the Norman Lear Award for Achievement in Television on Saturday night from the Producers Guild Association. Have you read her book Year Of Yes yet? WHY NOT!?! We reviewed Year Of Yes on The Social last week. During the segment, I read a couple of comments from our viewers. Full Story

Shonda Rhimes’ first book, The Year of Yes, comes out today. I wrote earlier this year that I thought the press related to the book would be delicious. Some of the juiciest bits are from this NPR interview Full Story

EW announced yesterday that Peter Krause has signed onto The Catch, which is the newest drama from Shondaland in which a professional player proceeds to get played. The player is Mireille Enos so everyone else likes to say ‘oh, from The Killing’ but to me she will always be from Big Love which, if you haven’t seen it, is the original binge-able show. Full Story

Lainey once called me contrary. This idea is preposterous, as I am not contrary. (Lainey: you are.) But I will admit that I don’t like to be predictable. If it’s too obvious that I’m going to go a certain way, I like to check myself. So in this situation, knowing as we do that I’m a pretty avowed Shonda Rhimes stan, I wanted to step back before I was excited. Full Story

I don’t know how to fill in the rest of that title. Because I don’t want to be yelled at. At the same time, I feel like you’re probably not going to be able to avoid it today so if you’re yelling at me, you’re probably yelling at everyone. About the spoiler… Is it really a spoiler? Is it still a spoiler? Grey’s Anatomy. Full Story

As you know, we have a lot of love for Shonda Rhimes here. Normally it’s Duana who gets to hog on loving Shonda. But she’s busy today. So I’m stealing this one from her and it’s big. Last night Shonda was named to the National Association of Broadcasting Hall Of Fame. And it’s not like I have to explain why but I will anyway: what would ABC be with Shondaland? There would be no TGIT. Full Story

Duana’s (snarky screenwriter) take Oh NO, you guys, terrible news! It seems that Hollywood has gotten a clue, based on how Shondaland kills everything in its path on Thursday nights, how well Jane The Virgin has done, and how Empire has JUGGERNAUTED its way through season one. Hollywood has decided that this pilot season, they should be looking for diversity. Full Story
