ABC Sets 2016-17 Fall Premiere Dates for Shondaland Shows, Kiefer Sutherland’s Drama & More

ABC has announced fall premiere dates for the 2016-2017 slate.

This year’s fall schedule sees a major change from ABC’s seasons past with the elimination of the Thursday night “TGIT” block, as “Scandal” Season 6 has been pushed to midseason. In place of the Kerry Washington hit is new legal drama “Notorious,” which will air in the 9 p.m. slot in between Shondaland’s medical graybeard “Grey’s Anatomy” staying at 8 p.m. and the Viola Davis Emmy-winning drama “How To Get Away with Murder” still at 10 p.m.
