HD Ratings: Super Fun Monday Sours

Don’t be surprised if TV2 pulls Scandal from its “super fun Monday” line-up after the second episode nosedived worse than the first. While the network’s two-hour comedy block largely won 7.30-9.30, lead-out Scandal came a distant third after TV One’s Britcom re-runs and TV3’s movie, a repeat of Repo Men.
