Turbotax still says accepted 1/14/19 Why hasn't the IRS accepted it yet?
IRS didn't start accepting anything until January 28 and then it had a backlog.
Once Turbo Tax transmits the documents to the IRS - then it is all up to the IRS. This is absolutely an IRS issue. Since the IRS didn't open until 1/28/19 - it really doesn't matter what date before that you submitted your tax return. Everything was backlogged and there is no way to know what order the IRS processes that backlogged data in.
Because you filed so early. The IRS doesn't start accepting until late January; when TurboTax accepts on January 14, it is much longer before the IRS can accept than if you wait longer (like your family and friends wisely did) and file when the IRS can accept.

We cannot know which it is.
Feel free to transmit the same return again. Only one will be accepted.
