Abc, NBC Shuffle January Premieres
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Within hours of this posting, NBC opted to bump "The Celebrity Apprentice" back to January 3 (read the story). To give you an idea of how quickly NBC changed its mind - a listing update confirming a two-hour "Deal or No Deal" on January 3 was issued at 8:19 AM PST this morning while the above release was put out at 2:31 PM PST. That's barely six hours boys and girls.]

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- It's official: ABC is once again sending "Grey's Anatomy" after NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice."

A network source has confirmed the Alphabet will move the January 3 installment of "Grey's" - the last episode filmed before the strike - to January 10. The news comes after yesterday's announcement the Peacock was shifting "Apprentice" to said date (read the story).

Making things more complicated - ABC has shuffled the dates for the premiere of "Cashmere Mafia" (read the story) and new episodes of "Ugly Betty" (read the story) and "Brothers & Sisters."
