If you’ve been anxiously waiting for the return of TGIT on ABC, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer. The network has announced that the season six debut of Scandal and the returns of How to Get Away with Murder and Grey’s Anatomy will be delayed a week.
The trio of dramas had been slated to return to the network on Thursday, January 19th. They’ve now been bumped by a 20/20 special. They will now air on January 26th.
Here’s the press note:
***JANUARY 19 SCHEDULE CHANGE***
The return of TGIT – “Grey’s Anatomy” (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST/PST), “Scandal” (Season six premiere 9:00-10:00 p.m. EST/PST) and “How To Get Away With Murder” (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST) – has been moved to THURSDAY, JANUARY 26.
An ABC News pre-inauguration “20/20” special, “America’s First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington,” will air from 10:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST on Thursday, January 19, preceded by repeats of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” at 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. EST/PST, respectively.
The move was made in order to accommodate the ABC News special and to ensure that TGIT returned with three original episodes.
