The Brendan Fraser news is probably the best since... well, since he was cast the first time around. Ben is definitely my favourite character outside the opening credits seven.

There's a Scrubs soundtrack? Huh. And if Amazon.com is to be believed, it was released some fifteen months ago. Where the heck have I been?

I've started watching pretty recently, but I'm hooked. So hooked. Does anyone know if there's going to be a DVD release anytime soon?

Another major guest star for February sweeps:

From usatoday.com:
Michael J. Fox will be appearing in two episodes during February sweeps. He will play an accomplished doctor who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Fox is the fifth guest star from Spin City, which was created and executive produced by Bill Lawrence.

Hearing of these guest stars has me all excited about new episodes of this show. When will we see the next new episode? Anybody know? I know it isn't on this week.

I saw that Scrubs was on quite a few year-end "best of" lists for various newspapers, online sites, and magazines. Perhaps it'll finally start getting the attention it deserves.

Does anyone know when it's coming to DVD? My fave moment of this season so far is the montage of JD pining as REM's "Bad Day" plays. Perfect song for the moment.

MediasharX.com has named Scrubs its Best Veteran Sitcom.

The show is filled with gut-busting humor and it simultaneously manages to touch you deep down inside at times.

I don't know if you all have heard, but there will not be an episode of Scrubs airing this Thursday as originally planned (I believe). NBC has decided to air the second episode of The Apprentice in the same post-Friends slot as it aired last week, pre-empting our beloved Sacred Heart gang until next week. An article I read even referred to Scrubs as one of NBC's "lesser" Thursday comedies. Pish, I say to that.

The Apprentice is great entertainment, but I want me some Scrubs! Wah!

WTF with the schedule change?!?

I know that reality TV is the sort of thing that can be fickle, especially in the second run (one only has to watch "Joe Millionaire 2" to know that). However, will networks accept that many of us don't like reality shows, and go out of our way to avoid them?

Instead, they bump "Scrubs." It's their best hope for a new sitcom. Setting aside the also-rans ("Good Morning Miami," "Meet the Parents," etc.), they are really running out of things for "Must See TV" momentum. "Friends" and "Frasier" are out the door come may, and "Will and Grace" has started a serious downward spiral. "Scrubs" is their best bet for something to build on. Do they promote it? No. Do they at least keep it on the schedule consistently? No. @#$%!!!!

Also, what's up with these "8:32" start times? Do they have to mess with VCRs so much?

I don't get it either, and I'd love to rant and rave about it, but I wouldn't end up saying anything that hasn't already been said. Hopefully there will be a lot less of this next year when Friends isn't on any more and won't be considered the "anchor" of Thursday night TV.

This is from The Futon Critic's list of the 50 best episodes of 2003. So far, they've posted episodes 50-41. I'm just saying that somewhere on the list better be My White Whale because Christopher Meloni was the funniest thing ever.

41. "scrubs: his story" (nbc)
originally aired: january 30, 2003

Hearing Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) take over the show's narration is worth the price of admission alone in this episode as he finds himself in the psychiatrist's (Eric Bogosian) chair. Even better: having the psychiatrist throwing Cox's trademark long-winded speeches back in his face. And let's not forget the introduction of Rick Schroder as Nurse Paul Flowers.

My fear is that if there is no clear "anchor," they'll be more apt to pre-empt the whole freakin' block for the latest "My Big Fat Apprentice Surving the Fear Factor of Average Joe Millionaire."

My other fear is that "Scrubs" might be lead into JtS territory. It is borderline now, with JD pining for Elliot. So far, it hasn't been an issue--they've kept the funny and the "growth yet no growth" that made it fresh and fun. However, if JD/Elliot become the focus, Cox matures, Turk/Carla settles down, and the rest, it might not be as strong a player when it is really needed.

I am very pissed off at NBC for this switch, and I actually enjoyed watching the Apprentice. However, I got involved watching because I knew it was a Wednesday show & I had nothing else I was watching in that slot (also, Miss Alli is recapping and she's gold!). But if they're going to screw around with my Scrubs timeslot for this show, I may have to turn my back on The Hair, The Donald and even Miss Alli's recaps.

SpaceyCadet (and anyone else who is curious), the official NBC website for Scrubs lists a new episode for January 22nd.

Tara Reid will be on again. IMO, meh. Hope her run is almost over.

I have the horrible suspicion that some network exec is passive-aggressively looking for a way to kill off Scrubs. Think about it: you mess with the programming of their time slot, cut the running time of each show, program episodes out of order, and - alas! - the ratings aren't good enough. Then you, the Evil Network Executive, can say, "Hey! You got the post-Friends slot! If you couldn't make it happen *there*, then it ain't gonna happen..." and you can kill it with a clear conscience.

I, for one, would love to know if their budget's been cut sometime in the last year. Or maybe this confirms my acceptance into the Conspiracy Theorists' Hall of Fame...
