ABC Renew/Cancel - January 27: Scandal is Certain to be Renewed

Season six of Scandal began this week on ABC. Also, Quantico had its first airing in its new home of Mondays at 10:00, and Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder returned. And, The Middle was renewed this week, a CORRECT prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.

**Announced it wouldn't receive additional episodes November 8, predicted certain to be canceled since October 7

Scandal: Returning to a 2.0, Scandal is ABC's #2 drama this season. Additionally, it helped How to Get Away with Murder reach a season high of 1.5. There is no way ABC would get rid of this show, especially with the fact that it comes from Shonda Rhimes. It is certain to be renewed.

Quantico: This week, Quantico had its opportunity to move up categories, at it aired on Monday nights after The Bachelor. However, it failed at this, improving by only one tenth, despite a very large lead-in. ABC must have been looking for more improvement than this in the move, so I doubt that they would renew it.
