/// ABC Won’t Rest Until Everyone Knows Scandal (and TGIT) Is Finally Back Tonight
After an excruciating eight-month hiatus for ABC, the network tonight finally gets to welcome back its TGIT lineup of Shonda Rhimes-produced Thursday-night dramas: Grey's Anatomy, Scandal (which was delayed until midseason due to Kerry Washington's pregnancy) and How to Get Away With Murder. And ABC's marketing department is making sure its viewers, who abandoned the network on Thursdays at 9 p.m. during the fall, return. ABC's fall replacement for Scandal, freshman drama Notorious, flopped immediately, averaging just a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is less than half of the 2.1 that Scandal brought in last season. It also drained the network's usually robust Thursday-night ad revenue.
