ABC’s Scandal has been a breakout hit of the television season in the ratings and critically, and according to star Kerry Washington, Scandal has a very famous fan: Bill Clinton.
The show has averaged more than 220,000 tweets per episode since January, according to SocialGuide; some of these fans include Oprah Winfrey, Lena Dunham, and Mary J. Blige. “Bill Clinton was another person where I was like, ‘What?! You watch Scandal?!’” Washington says. “I feel like it happens at least once a week — that I am totally floored by somebody who watches the show.”
In the show, Washington stars as a crisis communications professional in Washington, D.C., who also has an on-and-off affair with the young president of the United States.
