Ratings: Scandal Hits Finale High; Community, Parenthood Up

Scandal

No one died in the explosion, but Scandal went out with a huge bang Thursday.

The Season 3 finale drew 10.5 million viewers and a 3.4 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the show's most-watched and highest-rated season-ender yet. Scandal finished Season 3 up 39 percent in viewership and 43 percent in the demo. The episode followed Grey's Anatomy (8.1 million, 2.5), which was down a tenth.

Blurred Lines: Alan Thicke's Unusually Thicke Is Not Your Average Reality Show

Carter, Tanya, and Alan Thicke

Robin Thicke might hate these blurred lines, but his father sure doesn't. (Not like that!)

Alan Thicke, the erstwhile patriarch Jason Seaver on Growing Pains, returns to TV on Wednesday on Unusually Thicke (10/9c, TVGN), his reality-sitcom hybrid that's real, but not really. The series follows Thicke, 67, and his self-professed modern family, 16-year-old son Carter from his second marriage, and his third wife Tanya, who is 28 years his junior. It's authentic in that every interaction and piece of dialogue on the show is unscripted, but not totally legit in that they semi-stage the situations the trio finds themselves in.

The most loathed TV characters

"It's real with a nudge and a wink," Thicke tells TVGuide.com. "It's part-reality, part-sitcom. I never was so presumptuous to think that we're interesting enough to be followed ...

Amazing Race's John and Jessica: We Should Not Have Asked for the Answer

Jessica, John

John and Jessica had an unhappy Roman holiday on Sunday's Amazing Race All-Stars. After leaving the Detour first, the couple had taxi trouble and arrived last to the Roadblock at Rome's Spanish Steps. Fortunately, the Globetrotters and the Afghanimals were still there, and Jamal shared the answer with John and Flight Time, thinking there was still another team behind them. Unfortunately, there wasn't, and because John had to get a new postcard to write down the answer, the Season 22 alums were eliminated. "Yeah, I shouldn't have asked them [to tell us the answer]," Jessica tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "I was a little surprised they did, but at the time none of us thought we were fighting for last."So why did they think Caroline and Jen were behind them? And is this elimination harder to swallow after their infamous Express Pass miscue? See what they say below.
