SCRUBS on Life Support at ABC

Though ABC was surely hoping a med school class of fresh faces could propel Scrubs through its rather miraculous ninth season, it now seems the show itself is in critical condition.

Scrubs and the sophomore comedy Better Off Ted will each get a total of five episodes each between now and Jan. 12, meaning both shows could burn through remaining episodes before the end of the month. ABC will air two episodes of each on Jan. 5 and 12, and on Friday, Jan. 1, it will run a new Scrubs sandwiched between two Better Off Teds.

Despite the fact that Zach Braff and other regulars stuck around to help launch the new medical school concept, Scrubs has been clobbered in its 8 p.m. time slot, as has Better Off Ted at 8:30.  While hour winner NCIS: Los Angeles rolled to 17.4 million viewers Dec. 16, according to Nielsen, Scrubs garnered only 4.3 million and Better Off Ted only netted 3.2 million, besting only a rerun of the CW’s The Vampire Diaries. It may well soon be time to bid a final farewell to Sacred Heart.
