NBC has officially ditched its long-running Must-See TV lineup, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the great shows it produced.

Scrubs Goes Under the Knife, Gets a Makeover
TV shows on the brink of cancellation could take a bit of schooling from the series Scrubs. The cult comedy show has been through its share of drama in the last few years -- facing cancellation, searching for a new network home, and coming back from the brink of sure death to make a few more seasons. The saga continues this fall when Scrubs will go through a complete makeover.

Promos for Zach Braff's medical comedy during Heroes say series has "just four episodes left."

Scrubs to be flatlined?

Viewers tuning in to Monday's Heroes to find out what happens five years in the future (on that program anyway) may have caught a glimpse into the future of another program--the medical comedy Scrubs.

On Monday night, an ad hyping the NBC program's run to the end of its season stated there are "just four episodes left" of the show, causing some concern for fans. There was no distinction of there being four episodes left in the season or in the show's entire existence on NBC.

The ambiguity was likely intentional, according to Variety. Networks are currently in decisions to renew or let go of series, and Scrubs may be on life support. Though the show posts favorable ratings, its high price tag could warrant the network pulling its plug.

The San Jose Mercury News claims that word on the street is that NBC could renew 30 ...

NBC snubs Scrubs

Scrubs is likely done at the conclusion of this season, and the comedy's producers want to send it off with a bang. There aren't a lot of shows that last eight seasons and successfully dodge axes each summer the way Scrubs has, so why not give the program a nice send-off? It deserves it!

To create that party atmosphere, creator Bill Lawrence has decided to bring together all of the marquee guest stars who have appeared in Scrubs' run for an eye-popping finale...and he got his wish. Mostly.

According to EW.com, two stars that have since seen their careers rocket since palling around Scrubs weren't allowed to participate in Lawrence's wish. Masi Oka, who plays time-bending Hiro Nakamura on Heroes, and Sarah Lancaster, who plays Chuck's sister in Chuck, both did not ...

Nurse Espinosa removing Scrubs

The long-running medical comedy Scrubs normally leaves near-death experiences to its dramatic counterparts, but behind the scenes, it's seen the light and been revived plenty of times.

For several years the show has been considered "on the bubble" when networks make their decisions to cut or keep programming, and each year it escapes the axe late in the game. After seven successful years at NBC, Scrubs begins its eighth season on a new network--ABC--this season. However, that relationship could be one-and-done.

Many have suspected that this season could be the show's last, and comments made by actress Judy Reyes, who plays nurse Carla Espinosa, certainly add fuel to that fire.

According to news service Bloomberg, Reyes said she would be leaving the sitcom after this season, and that others from the team were likely to follow. In addition to her departure, she thinks lead Zach Braff and creator ...

Reports emerge saying ABC is headhunting the medical comedy; NBC said to be "caught off guard" with possible move.

Scrubs taking residency at ABC?

Fans of the medical comedy Scrubs are hoping that ABC can give them a second opinion. The NBC show was supposed to pull the plug on the series after this season, with the last remaining question being how a series finale would be made in the strike-shortened season.

But like a doctor that just won't give up on a dying patient, ABC is swooping in with the defibrillators. Last night, a report by the online branch of The Hollywood Reporter hit the wires stating that ABC was in negotiations to pick up the show for 18 episodes, giving the long-running comedy new life.

However, NBC was apparently "caught off guard" by the article and not privy to the negotiations. To thicken the drama, Scrubs is produced by ABC Studios, which licenses the show to ...

Report: Braff to Scrub on

The drama of next week's final cuts on fall programming might not include the bombshells industry watchers were hoping for, as the fate of several shows has already been revealed.

Trade magazines have reported that NBC is the main culprit, with early renewals of Friday Night Lights and Medium, as well as pickups of four shows, including The Bionic Woman.

Now, one of the network's biggest question marks is allegedly heading back for a new season. Scrubs, which was rumored to be on its way out last week, has been renewed by NBC, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Citing "sources," the trade says the medical comedy starring Zach Braff will return for its seventh season and 18 more episodes. Scrubs debuted in October 2001.

Scrubs, Privileged hanging on for life

We're not going to sugarcoat anything--things look grim for most shows not considered locks to be returning next fall. The proliferation of cable, the anti-proliferation of the economy, and the relocation of Jay Leno are making things difficult for all programs "on the bubble."

This half-hour comedy focuses on the bizarre experiences of fresh-faced medical intern John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) as he embarks on his healing career in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients – where humor and tragedy can merge paths at any time.

Joining the rumpled J.D. in his exhilarating brave new world are his college buddy, Chris Turk (Donald Faison, "Clueless"), an intern with a more elite surgical group, and J.D.'s fellow medical intern, the beautiful and driven Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, "Roseanne"). Keeping the new interns on their toes are: The fatherly chief of medicine, Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins); the abrasive, worldly Dr. Perry Cox (John McGinley), and the caring but slightly jaded nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes). The hospital janitor (Neil Flynn) also never seems to miss an opportunity to harass his target.

Scrubs is filmed in a real-life hospital. It's the North Hollywood Medical Center, which has gone under severe reconstruction to fit all the equipment and represent Sacred Heart Hospital.
