We now know for certain that it was the last original episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC that NBC was trying to avoid when it moved the debut of “The Celebrity Apprentice” from January 3rd to January 10th (12/21/TVBR #248). As we noted, January 3rd is the date of the Iowa Caucuses, which had folks at ABC worrying about potential news interruptions of that precious last episode in the can.

At least for the moment, that’s where it is scheduled to air.
