Scandal is one of the most popular shows on social media. The cast tweets with their fans when the show is airing on television. During the premiere of Season 3, the show topped Nielsen's Twitter TV Ratings top 10. The show will be missed by fans, but they still have the rest of Season 7 to look forward to and probably a tearful social media good by when the cast live-tweets during the final episodes.
