Debut of ABC’s ‘Prep & Landing’ Pushed Back to Dec 8

Initially set to air on December 1, ABC has decided to push back the debut of its first holiday special from Walt Disney Animation Studios to December 8 at 8:30 PM ET (not Central as others have been reporting) because of a televised press conference by President Obama. Although the press conference is scheduled to run from 8:00 pm – 8:30 pm and would apparently not overlap with Prep & Landing‘s airing at 8:30, ABC has decided to move it anyway.

The back-to-back season premiere of Scrubs is expected to air at 9PM ET as scheduled.
