See anything distressing? For some, it will take much longer than others to find out what happens after that mid-season cliffhanger. Not that those mid-season cliffhangers have quite yet happened, but the anticipation can be taxing nonetheless.

For instance, those who are already holding their breath anxiously because they just KNOW that the Dark Ones storyline on Once Upon A Time is NOT going to be resolved before winter hiatus are dreading the wait until March to find out more and see what happens in the latter half of the season.

Anyone who has gotten into the fall hit, Quantico, is biting their nails after seeing their March winter premiere date as well.

On the other hand, there are also brand new shows like Shonda Rhimes’s The Catch that, like all Shondaland series’, are already generating buzz and yet it’s looking at a late March premiere.

What is ABC’s strategy? If you have any theories, leave them in the comments below!
