Promo Warns Grey's, Scandal, HTGAWM Fans of Withdrawal Symptoms

ABC released a fun promo during its New Year’s Eve countdown show, alerting fans of its #TGIT (Thank God It’s Thursday) drama line-up of possible withdrawal symptoms.

In the prescription drug-style “commercial,” cast members from Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder illustrate the signs that you just might be suffering from TGITWD — which is triggered by an “OMG deficiency in the brain” — during this holiday hiatus, then assures you that the Shondalanda trifecta will return, at month’s end.

Which #TGIT drama are you most anxiously awaiting the return of?

UPDATE: An extended version has since been released:

    After the horribly predictable and lame fall finales I’m not having any withdraws at all.

  2. Tran says:

    Looking forward to Scandal’s return come January 29th even though we can’t get enough of shirtless Scott Foley.

    • frank says:

      That’s about all he does on the show , he’s otherwise useless. No anticipation for Scandal at all. HTGAWM has stolen Scandal the soap opera’s thunder

  3. Babygate says:

    Love this! Asher is quickly becoming my fave. Looking forward to Grey’s the most but most excited about Scandal. This season so far is the best it’s ever been, IMO.

  4. thisismenow says:

    Excited. Although bummed we get 6 weeks of HTGAWM before it leaves us again.

  7. dawn jack says:

    Why did they use the less interesting members of the Shondaland shows for the promo?

  8. dawn jack says:

    Cant get enough SCANDAL!! Want HOT more SEXY stuff from Tony Goldwyn! Hail to the Sexiest Cheif on TV ever!!!!

  9. ChrisGa says:

    Good lord that Jack Falahee is sexy as HELL.

  10. Margie Cady says:

    Waiting for Scandal! This season, it’s the show that if you miss one minute, you might miss a twist to the plot line.

    Love Connor and Asher!! Can’t wait for HTGAWM to return. They are the only two of the Keating 5 that I really care to see continue to next season. My first pick to go Wes. Never really like the character.
    I’d say out of the three shows my eagerness to watch is ranked 1) HTGAWM, 2) Grey’s Anatomy, and 3) Scandal.
    Scandal has just not been that great for a while now from the repeat of the Olivia’s missing storyline that we already saw at the beginning of the season to Fitz just being an awful, annoying, whiny character as well as the show’s refusal to once and for all kick Rowan/Joe Morton and his terrible acting monologues off the show. Seriously hoping this second half improves. The main thing the show needs to do IMO is get rid of Rowan. Get rid of the character/actor and bring on a new villain if they need to. Seriously, it’s been almost three seasons of this nonsense with him. Enough already!

      Naw, Wes ah… “deer in the head lights” he gonna be around a bit more. He is the only one black mailing Annalise, how she fell into that, I don’t understand. Nate is not going to understand Wes hold on Annalise either that going to be a mess. Think prom girl will flame out first she put herself on blast, placing a phone call and a text from the house and never did pick up the boy friend’s call who could not find the girl. Then losing the ring and touching inside the bag with naked hands you know she going on trial. Scandal too hot for me still think the Prez will be the victor. Olivia is Fitz to the bone they are a hoot… Jan 29… the laughs will start again. In the meantime I’m on the ID channel shaking my head at the real life drama people know they are a mess!

  12. The best thing about this video was the Poo-Pouri ad that showed in front of it. I couldn’t stop laughing

    Love scandal htgawm i liked first show the rest to confusing with the flashbacks

    • abz says:

      They were flashFORWARDS not flashbacks. I don’t get why so many people felt confused. Everything shown over the first 8 episodes pretty much led to the winter finale and how the events happened were put in order and explained and of course they introduced more questions and story points for the second half of the season. It wasn’t as confusing as people were making it sound.

      • herman1959 says:

        Ditto, some people didn’t understand how the progression (each episode moving forward in time to match up with the flashforward during the finale) worked soon enough to appreciate it. Hopefully they get it now.

  15. H says:

    LOL. Awesome.

  16. TigerLIL says:

    Oh can’t wait for the return of how to get away with murder as I am dying to see how they will ever get away with murder with all the clues they left behind. Like to see how they all hold up on keeping a straight face. Don’t know how my girl Annalise is going to dodge the snooping detective Nate while trying to sex him on the side or brush him aside. Then keeping Frank and Stealth Sneaky Bonnie in the dark. Poor prom girls first shooting star, she gonna be put on trial first for the murder she left every clue you can imagine from phone calls to a pricy ring. Wes spending his time trying to keep Nate off him as that is bout who Nate is going to suspect flat-line the hubby and controlling Annalise while trying to keep up with slick Rebecca, Thank God it Thursdays gonna turn into nothing but a hot mess….two words…STAY TUNED…LOL
