A repeat of ABC's Scandal won the 10 o'clock hour among Adults 18-49, besting CBS' Elementary replay by 20% and NBC's first-run Rock Center with BrIan Williams by 125%. In fact, Scandal was the #1 series in its slot for its 6th consecutive broadcast with young adults. In Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, Scandal marked its highest repeat numbers ever.
