"Thank God It's Thursday" (TGIT) may not be the same without "Scandal," but we still have another Shonda Rhimes thriller, "How to Get Away with Murder" to keep us on the edge of our seats. "Scandal" shocked fans from 2012 until the political thriller's series finale in April 2018. But "HTGAWM" will return in fall 2018, and the murder mystery series is going strong. While "Grey's Anatomy" is TGIT's tearjerker, "Scandal" and "HTGAWM" must duke it out as Rhimes' top thriller of all time. Which show wins? 📺

Below is the synopsis of "Scandal," per IMDb.

A former White House Communications Director starts her own crisis management firm only to realize her clients are not the only ones with secrets.

Live tweeting and social media users made "Scandal" a mega hit show. With every twist and turn of the last six years—Gladiators have been there in shock and amazement.

The acclaimed political thriller's final season ended with a 95 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. "Scandal" broke a major barrier for Black female leads on TV, and even paved the way for "HTGAWM." And while the thriller ended, it went out with a bang!

Below is the synopsis of "HTGAWM," per IMDb.

A group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defense professor become involved in a twisted murder plot that promises to change the course of their lives.

It says it all in the name.

"How to Get Away with Murder" was set up to have you guessing, jumping and dropping your mouth in awe. The praised legal thriller debuted in the fall of 2014 while sister series "Scandal" was beginning its fourth season. And yes—the legal thriller adds more murder and mystery than "Scandal."

"Scandal" might be the original, but "HTGAWM" in its current season has a slightly higher fresh rating with 100 percent and audience score of 75 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. "HTGAWM" returns with season five in late September on ABC.
