Gladiators waiting for ABC’s “Scandal,” to return will have to wait a little longer. After having “Scandal,” delayed because Kerry Washington had a baby, the show will return a week later than previously announced. “Scandal,” was scheduled to return January 19th but will instead be back January 26th. The reason? The inauguration coverage of President-elect Donald Trump. When “Scandal,” does return on January 26th, the story line will be a female presidential candidate, Mellie Grant, running against a Latino Democratic candidate.
