Thursdays? More Like Shondays!
After announcing its renewals (Yay Nashville!) and cancellations (RIP, Trophy Wife!), ABC just unveiled its new line up for the fall TV season and it's official: Shonda Rhimes owns the network's entire night of programming on Thursdays.
How to Get Away With Murder, Rhimes' new drama starring Viola Davis, is set to take over Scandal's 10 p.m. timeslot, bumping Kerry Washington and her Gladiators to 9 p.m. after Grey's Anatomy at 8 p.m. (BRB, already ordering all the wine to make it through this line-up, which is sure to be filled with more twists and turns than a mere human can possibly handle sober.)
