Okay TGIT fans, there's some good news and some bad news this evening. We'll go ahead and rip off the Band-Aid: Grey's Anatomy and the rest of the TGIT line-up are not airing tonight, Thursday, April 25.
Instead, ABC is hosting the NFL Draft, which is great news for sports fans. It's a little puzzling that the draft is being hosted on ABC, the only one of the big four without an NFL package throughout the regular season (though ABC's parent company also owns ESPN, so sports ball does run in the family). The broadcast will also feature a special appearance from Taylor Swift, who will be dropping another clue about her new music expected to release on Friday, April 26.
The good news is that Grey's and TGIT will return next week. In fact, Grey's and Station 19 will kick things off with a two-hour crossover special centering on trying to save Chief Ripley (Brett Tucker), who collapsed at the end of last week's Station 19. Grey's will also have to contend with Jo's (Camilla Luddington) continuing downward spiral. Meanwhile on For the People, Allison (Jasmin Savoy Brown) will get her first big episode of the season when she defends a man accused of selling fake cigarettes.
So just hang tight. One more week until your favorite shows are back!
Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, and For the People all return Thursday, May 2 beginning at 8/7c on ABC.
