'TGIT' will have to be patient for the return of "Scandal," "Grey’s Anatomy" and “"ow To Get Away With Murder."

Variety reports:

The premiere date of Shondaland’s Thursday night trio of shows has been pushed back one week to Jan. 26, due to a pre-inauguration "20/20" special about Donald Trump and his family, which will air on Jan. 19. (The original premiere date for the three TGIT series was Jan. 19.) 

The “20/20” special, titled “America’s First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington,” will air just the day before the Jan. 20 inauguration when Trump is sworn into the White House.

The hourlong program will air from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., preceded by repeat episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” at 8 p.m. and “Scandal” at 9 p.m

In a press release issued by ABC, the network stated the reason for the scheduling move was to accommodate the ABC News special, while keeping the return of TGIT intact with three original episodes for all of the shows.

On Jan. 26, the new episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” will air at 8 p.m., “Scandal” at 9 p.m. and “How To Get Away With Murder” at 10 p.m.


The "20/20" special will cover Trumps’ past, present, and future as his family moves into the White House. Of course, it will also mark and end for the Obama family's time in the White House. 

In a past interview with Vogue, First Lady Michelle Obama states her family’s time has come to exit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. She said, "I think our democracy has it exactly right: two terms, eight years. It’s enough. Because it’s important to have one foot in reality when you have access to this kind of power. The nature of living in the White House is isolating."

ABC has insisted that the scheduling change was due to the airing of the inauguration special and not related to any fictional content.


Fans are still not happy campers:



"Scandal" star Tony Goldwyn even weighed in on the situation:
