*Following next week’s season three finale of ABC’s “Scandal,” the network’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” will air a special edition featuring an exclusive on-set interview with showrunner Shonda Rhimes.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live: Behind the Scandalabra” will also feature special appearances and inside secrets from the “Scandal” cast as well as include a never-before-seen “Scandal” blooper reel and the full anthology of Kimmel’s Spanish-language telenovela “Escandalo,” which ended its run this week
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pairing of Kimmel with “Scandal” has proven successful for ABC. The network’s lone late-night talk show nabbed its best ratings of the season in February when Scandal star Kerry Washington was the featured guest.
Kimmel has featured the majority of the cast this season, including Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Jeff Perry, Josh Malina, Scott Foley and Columbus Short, many of whom participated in the “Escandalo” viral video series.
“Scandal” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC; “Behind the Scandalabra” airs Thursday, April 17 following the season three finale.
