What's on ABC in place of ‘Grey's Anatomy’?
If ‘Grey's Anatomy’ is not airing today, what's on ABC? Catch 2021 NFL Draft on the channel instead of the show.
Fans are clearly not pleased with the break. "I don’t accept the fact that there’s no greys tonight. I WILL be watching the shooting episode to cope," one wrote and another said, "How could you cope watching THAT episode." One even went on to say, "Cancel the nfl draft tbh."
Another posted, "I even made sure all my marking and planning were caught up and done so I could really just relax in front of Station 19 and Greys!"

‘Grey's Anatomy’ Season 17 Episode 14 Spoilers
According to the summary for ‘Look Up Child’, “Jackson pays a visit to his father that helps set him on the right path.” In a sneak peek from the episode amid the George Floyd protests, Jackson is perturbed. Expressing his thoughts about the disturbing incident, he asks his mother, Catherine Fox (Debbie Allen), “If our foundation is so good at fighting the good fight, then why isn’t anything getting better? … Why aren’t we there (protesting in the streets)? Why don’t we have scars?”
Disheartened, he adds, “I don’t want to play a role in a system that’s just broken.” Just then, his mother snaps back, “You sound like your father.” Jackson then asks, “Oh, that’d be the worst thing in the world?” and it seems he goes to visit his father, Robert Avery (Eric Roberts).
Fans can't wait to watch what happens. “I swear if they put them back together only to ruin Japril AGAIN I will be so pissed off! I'm still not over what they did to my favorite couple! Getting rid of Sarah was one of the stupidest moves this show made,” one said and another posted, “A part of me wants to believe Japril will be endgame and this is their way of taking Jackson off the show. But the person who has been watch greys for 3 years knows he’s probably just there to seek guidance or something and they’re playing with us.”
