All the Gladiators In Suits will be excited to learn that ABC has ordered it’s Shonda Rhimes produced political drama to a full 22 episode sophomore season. Originally slated for 13 episodes, the show has done well in ratings, prompting executives to extend it’s run. That means even more Olivia Pope & Associates, more season long story arcs, and more drama. [via THR]
In other TV news, Queen Latifah‘s forthcoming talk show, co-executive produced by Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith, is scheduled to hit 16 CBS owned stations across the country in Fall 2013. According to Deadline, the show will feature celbrity interviews, pop culture and musical performances. I think this a good look for the Queen, as she’ll have an opportunity to to put both her musical skills and personality to good use.
