Premium- TV News -'Grey's Anatomy' Will Be Delayed Due To Presidential Address — Here's What You Need To Know
If the only thing saving your sanity this past year has been your Thursday night appointment with Grey's Anatomy, you're going to want to double check your DVR this week. All of your favorite Thursday TV shows, including Grey's Anatomy will be delayed on March 11, as President Biden makes his first primetime address to the nation.
In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a global pandemic and the beginning of shutdowns across the U.S., Biden will deliver remarks on Thursday across broadcast networks, ABC, NBC, Fox, and likely CBS, though they have not yet confirmed. The address will begin at 8p.m. ET/5p.m. PT and is reportedly expected to last between 15-30 minutes. And, while original programming is still expected to air, fans might get a bit of a surprise when they tune in to check up on Station 19 and find Joe Biden speaking to them instead.
Here's everything you need to know about Biden's address and how each network is handling it to make sure you don't miss your favorite show.
ABC's Thursday lineup — Station 19, Grey's Anatomy, and A Million Little Pieces — will air right after Biden's address. The upside: y0u won't have to wait any longer than necessary. The downside: because there are no set start times, you might have to watch the entire presidential address to ensure you don't miss the first few moments of Station 19, which is crossing over with Grey's Anatomy this week.
