Shonda Rhimes Reacts To Shows Delayed
This week, ABC announced that the official 2017 premiere of its full #TGIT lineup — which was previously slated for Thursday, Jan. 19 — will now air on Jan. 26. The purpose of the delay is to air America’s First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington.
When it comes to the scheduling delay, Shonda Rhimes, who is not a fan of President-elect Trump, has no opinion. She says,
I just think that ABC does its programming. I’m not in charge of scheduling. I’m fine with whatever they want to do. It has nothing to do with my job. I stay in my lane. I honestly don’t have anything to do with programming or scheduling, and don’t pay attention to it or spend very much time caring about it.
When later asked about the phone call she received to inform her of the #TGIT delay, the TV producer stated,
I am not going to comment on conversations I’ve had with my bosses, because I like my job.
Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder returns Thursday, Jan. 26.
