‘Scandal’ Sets Premiere Date For Final Episodes at ABC
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.
