"Scrubs" reminds me of Wayne Fontes-- the old Detroit Lions coach. Every off-season there were rumors of his demise, yet every year he came back. NBC has been trying to have the show scrubbed (pardon the pun) almost since it premiered in 2001. I guess all that fantastic new programming that the super-smart Peacock executives were cultivating had something to do with it. ("Coupling", "Emeril", "Veronica's Closet", "Whoopi", "Hidden Hills", "The In-Laws", "Good Morning, Miami", "The Tracy Morgan Show"... and that's just the sitcoms!)
Anywho, they finally dumped it and it's now on ABC for what looks like its final season. They wanted to have a blow-out finale with all the former guest stars returning for it. But two of those stars are now regulars on NBC and the network has laid down the law on them. Read the story here.
