  1. Hi Phil – any insight into the return of the latest season of Scandal to late-night TV2?

  2. Hi Rosco. TVNZ’s just confirmed Scandal won’t resurface until late November …

  3. Hi Phil – Thanks for the feedback and timeline. November eh? That kind of sucks! Ah well, at least it IS scheduled to come back (even late at night) and not been binned without an explanation. That happens all too often!
