Shonda Night returns on Sept. 24, and we could not be more excited.
The back-to-back airings of "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal" and "How To Get Away With Murder" have made ABC the channel to watch on Thursday nights for sex, drama, and fabulous wardrobes. And the shows are making history.
On Sept. 20, veteran actress Viola Davis became the first African-American woman to win an Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama. Her acceptance speech showed how Shonda Night is changing television for the better.
"You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there," she said. "So here’s to all the writers, the awesome people that are Ben Sherwood, Paul Lee, Peter Nowalk, Shonda Rhimes, people who have redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be a leading woman, to be black."
Rhimes' award-winning shows offer complex, powerful roles and diverse casts. If you're not tuning in, you really should be.
