‘Scandal’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ & ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Premiere Episodes Bumped for Trump

“Scandal” along with two other top-rating shows, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder” are expected to premiere new episodes on the 19th of January on ABC.

However, it seems like fans in the US and Canada – and all over the world, will have to wait another week for their initial offering after their hiatus.

The bad news also affects “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder”.

The latter which is already in its third season will try to find out who killed Wes Gibbons. The main character was found in a fire that broke out in Annaliese Keating’s house but biopsy shows a different side to it. It seems like someone is indeed trying to get away with murder.

It seems like the network does not want to premiere the episodes unless they are all starting on the same date. Big ratings are expected as the three are easily the highest rating shows on the network. That means, three brand new episodes and one hell of a night is in store for the fans!

It may be just one week but the agony of anticipation probably annoys everyone waiting for these shows to premiere. It can only be worth the wait if these shows’ first episodes will leave fans buzzing and satiate their anxious waiting period.
