ABC is giving a prime Thursday slot to the pilot episode of “The Family” before it moves to Sunday nights for the remainder of its run this season. Though it’s not from TGIT maestro Shonda Rhimes’ company, “The Family’s” twisty plot and intergenerational intrigue aren’t a bad fit with “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder.”

Will it be a ratings fit? And will that carry over to its regular Sunday home? That remains to be seen.

Vote in the poll below for the show’s 18-49 rating for its premiere Thursday, and discuss how you think “The Family” will (or won’t) hold up on Sundays in the comments.
