Shonda Rhimes says her move to Netflix doesn’t mean she’s abandoning her ABC shows
“I think there’s a misconception,” Rhimes said at the TV press tour. “We’re already at Netflix and we’re on ABC. Our deal with Netflix already began. It’s not like we’re going to pack our bags and take some boxes and march some place else at a set time. We’re here. We have five shows at ABC. We’re developing another. We’re really happy where we are…It’s not as if we’re going anywhere. It’s like saying I have five kids and I’m going to leave and go someplace else. It’s not as if there’s a separation date or something.”

ABC is pitting American Idol directly against The Voice
ABC has released its midseason schedule, and the Idol revival will air from 8 to 10 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays, starting on March 11. That means Idol will compete with the NBC singing competition on Mondays. As James Hibberd notes, “what makes this all the most compelling is that The Voice‘s (Kelly) Clarkson is Idol’s most famous alum. There was considerable speculation that NBC swooped in to hire her for their talent show to prevent ABC from snagging her for the Idol revival when she was hired early last year (NBC executives dutifully denied that Idol coming back had anything to do with hiring their new competition’s most famous winner).”
- Scandal moving to 10 p.m. to make way for the Grey's Anatomy spinoff, which is getting a two-hour premiere
- ABC sets more midseason premiere dates, including Zach Braff's Alex, Inc.
- ABC renews The Gong Show for Season 2
- Jimmy Kimmel jokes "What could possibly go wrong?" in the poster for the 2018 Oscars

How the Scandal-How to Get Away with Murder crossover came together
How to Get Away with Murder creator Pete Nowalk says the crossover event will run two hours across both shows on the same night. “I’ll say the whole two hours takes place in the same setting, and they have that arc over those two hours,” he says. Nowalk adds that he pitched Shonda Rhimes with the idea. “At the beginning of the season, my writers and I were planning out Viola’s entire arc and something in her story organically came up that was very appropriate for Scandal,” he says. “When I went to Shonda, she heard it. I said, we don’t have to do it, Viola’s arc doesn’t need this, but it’s possible that their stories could cross really organically. She actually pulled up a clip of something from Scandal and their side of the story coalesced perfectly. So it was one of those serendipitous things where we both realized it was good for both characters, and it almost felt like we had been planning it since last season.”
