#Scandal & #TGIT PUSHED back because of #DonaldTrump! [details]
Gladiators and fans of ABC's 'TGIT' have been WAITING patiently for the return of your FAVES, 'Scandal', 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'How To Get Away With Murder will have to wait a BIT LONGER!
The highly-anticipated return of Shonda Rhimes' TRIFECTA, 'TGIT' was slated to return January 19, but that date has gotten PUSHED back thanks to President-elect, Donald Trump!
President-elect Donald Trump is due to be sworn into office on Friday, Jan. 20, ABC has opted to air a new 20/20 special, America's First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington, in the 10 p.m. time slot on Thursday, Jan. 19. And per ABC's press release, both Grey's and Scandal will be pushed in order to keep the big TGIT return in tact. SO FANS mark your calendar for January 26th NOW. Not even in OFFICE yet and he is already CAUSING problems, RIGHT? LOL. Well what's one more week to wait???
When we last saw our favorite fictional D.C. players, they were in the midst of a especially crazy election year, not unlike us in the real world. With Cyrus (Jeff Perry) named Francisco Vargas' running mate, pitting him against Mellie (Bellamy Young), Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) continued power in the nation's capital remains very much in limbo. The results of the election will be revealed when the show returns in just a few weeks, and true to form, Scandal fans would be wise to expect the unexpected. It will be WORTH the WAIT!
