Two slices of TV news for you today. First off: Be honest, did any of you really know that Scrubs was still on? If so, Zach Braff has some news for you, delivered via his Facebook feed [via THR]. Here’s what he had to say:
“Many of you have asked, so here it is: It appears that ‘New Scrubs,’ ‘Scrubs 2.0,’ ‘Scrubs with new kids,’ ‘Scrubbier,’ ‘Scrubs without JD’ is no more. It was worth a try, but alas … it didn’t work. zb”
Now, I was a loyal watcher of the first eight seasons, which were just lighter than air and just about perfect ensemble TV comedy,but the “New Scrubs,” or whatever you want to call ABC’s bizarre attempt at a ninth season transformation, has been not just unwatchable but even worse – instantly forgettable. If Braff is indeed right – and since the show has had only two new episodes since the end of March, I’d imagine so – it’s an ignominious end for an often-brilliant show that should really have gone out last year with most of its original cast.
