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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
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, 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...
