More Scrubs News
Though this makes me very excited, it's not necessarily a good thing. Whenever a network does a stunt like this, it's usually a sign of desperation, which means the show may be very much on the chopping block. The ratings have been so-so as usual this season, but I'm assuming the last few eps haven't done so well? I just hope it's a matter of scheduling and that they just needed to space the original eps apart. However, the rumor mill's been saying for a while now that the show may not come back next year. If so, Bill Lawrence is quoted as saying that ABC would become the show's home:
"The one time ABC owning us is going to be good for us, will be when for some reason the show didn’t get picked up next year by NBC. It’s 100 percent that ABC will pick it up because the president of the network is the one that developed it – Stephen McPhearson who used to run Touchstone – and every episode we make is profit for Disney. I think we would have a really good shot. I’m very honest, I’m friends with the actors and writers, it’s about 70/30 we’ll be on somewhere next year, and after next year it will probably go away. We always had it geared up six years in our head. It’s what Zach’s contract is and I think after you get past that, to really redefine the show, you have to start talking about Zach walking out and some kid with a new voiceover coming in and I’m not sure that’s what I want to do."
