Scrubs is coming back

NBC just renewed the sitcom for a sixth season. This is a bit of shocker, since the show's creators had pretty much assumed this would be it for their show, and hence felt free to pull out all the stops this season.

I guess they did well by doing good, or something.

Commander In Chief fans can now start praying for a similar turnaround.

Even if CIC gets a second season, it still may not be enough. Meaning that the budget for the show may be cut in half. Getting 8 million viewers is not quite as good as getting 15 million viewers, and according to Matt Drudge, ABC says they will cancel the show if it does not get around a 15 share.

The real test is when how CIC stands to up to first run episodes of ER. Without A Trace is now a given.

What also hurts CIC is the show does not imprese the 18-49 demo which is the advertisers crave :-(

Comments on Scrubs:

I did read that ABC wanted to pick up the show since its produced by its parent compnay Disney (via the Touchstone imprint).

NBC wanted to keep this Mouse produced program on The Peacock, and I said on my blog that NBC would fight for this show. Looks like they did just that.

Now we can only hope for at least six seasons of the American Office. Six seasons would allow that verion to go over the 100 episode mark.

Unlike British TV you need so many episodes to be truly remember.

There is some exceptions but their are so few in the States.

The UK version of The Office only had 12 half hour episodes and two Christimas specials that brought closure to the UK Office.

In fact Fawlty Towers had 12 episodes and seen as one of best British sitcoms of all time.
