‘Scandal’ Sets Premiere Date for Final Episodes at ABC

ABC announced the midseason premiere dates for its TGIT lineup, including the final episodes of “Scandal,” on Thursday.

The final eleven episodes of “Scandal,” along with the midseason premieres of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” will all launch on Jan. 18. All three shows will air their winter finales tonight on ABC.

The network confirmed in May that the current seventh season of “Scandal” would be the show’s last. “I’ve had conversation with Shonda [Rhimes] for a while, she had a sense of how she wanted the story to end,” ABC Entertainment head Channing Dungey said at the time. “I always prefer to end a show where you’re feeling creatively on top.”

In addition, ABC announced the premiere dates for the new season of “Match Game” and the new game show “Child Support.”

“Match Game,” produced by FremantleMedia North America, returns to primetime on Jan. 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT for Season 3. The show will once again be hosted by Alec Baldwin. “Match Game” is a panel game show that features two contestants as they attempt to match the answers of six celebrities in a game of fill-in the missing blank. Baldwin and FMNA’s Jennifer Mullin, Scott St. John, and Mallory Schwartz executive produce.

The series premiere of “Child Support,” a one-hour studio-based series from Ricky Gervais and Banijay Studios North America, will make its debut on Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Produced by Banijay Studios North America, the primetime series will feature adult contestants and priceless interactions between funny man Ricky Gervais and a group of five kids who say the most unpredictable things. Hosted by Fred Savage, contestants are asked to answer 10 questions correctly to earn the top prize. If they answer incorrectly, the contestants have a chance to be saved by the 5 kids who have been asked the same question by Gervais. Gervais, David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard and Jeff Krask are executive producers.
