'Scrubs' Is Done at NBC!
Post by: Sal
NEW YORK -- NBC confirmed on Wednesday that "Scrubs" will end its seven-season run on the network in May. Which doesn't necessarily mean the show is going away for good.
It's widely expected that "Scrubs" will end up on ABC next season, given that it's produced by the network's Disney brother ABC Studios and network entertainment chief Stephen McPherson helped develop the show back when he ran the studio. Recent reports have said a deal with ABC is near completion; ABC will announce its schedule in mid-May, during the traditional upfront week.
NBC boss Ben Silverman managed to get in a diss of ABC in noting that following its season finale in May, "Scrubs" will be a free agent. "If they can go 1-for-21, good for them," Silverman said, referring to ABC's less-than-stellar recent record at developing comedy hits.
