Even though Scrubs won't be back until March, our sources have provided us with some Dave Franco news to tide us over. There may be some who don't like how he's played out on the ABC comedy, but it looks like he's going to hit it big sometime soon. At least, that's what Details magazine believes. Young actor Dave Franco has been chosen as one of seven celebrities who could be next big things in the entertainment industry. He's been named part of "The Next Generation of Hollywood's Leading Men," which definitely is an honor for this young star. We recently reported that this 24-year-old Scrubs star has landed a pretty sweet photo shoot with the clothing line "Band of Outsiders." Still, there are more projects in store for Dave Franco. One day, you may even forget his role as actor James Franco's little brother. Even he wants that to drop that. To Read More Click Here .
Donald Faison is trading his hospital scrubs for a police badge. The Scrubs alum has been cast in the CBS pilot The Odds, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Faison will play the show's lead homicide detective. The cop series, set in Las Vegas, comes from Joel Silver (Moonlight) and Jeff Wadlow (The Tower of Babble). Reps for Scrubs told TVGuide.com that Faison's casting will not affect this season since production has concluded. The Bill Lawrence-produced series will not know until May if it will be picked up for another season. Faison was attached to a pilot last year and still made his way back to the ABC series.

It's been a Scrubs -less February for us fans, and it still looks even bleaker when March comes. There are only two episodes left this season, but there doesn't seem to be any decision regarding the fate of the re-imagined series. The Futon Critic reports that ABC has already confirmed the schedule for Scrubs [Med School]'s return. They've been putting off airing the last two installments since January, and have only recently announced the upcoming schedule for them. Scrubs will be returning on March 10 at 8pm with "Our Driving Issues," and again on the Wednesday after (that's March 17) with the season finale "Our Thanks." The network announced last month that they planned to move the show to Comedy Wednesdays, hoping to give it better ratings that way. Since it didn't push through then, they opted to skip a whole month before bringing it back. Not exactly a wise decision for the network though. It looks as though ABC doesn't have much faith in the series at all. Even the show's creator Bill Lawrence is uncertain about its fate. He recently posted the aforementioned episode schedules on his Twitter account, and deleted the whole update a while later. It seems like he's just banking on his other show, Cougar Town, to stay in business. Still, knowing how much of a survivor Scrubs is, we're still hoping for another season. Granted, there are flaws to the show and all, but it definitely offers characters we'd like to know more. We could let Lucy (Kerry Bishe) continue to learn the ropes, and watch the inevitable ups and downs of romance via Drew and Denise. There's still plenty to tell when it comes to this comedy. After all, Zach Braff wasn't the only one we were rooting for when this series first aired. Besides, Scrubs is the show that just won't die. Adding to the past troubles it endured is this whole month of onscreen absence. Ever immortal, this Bill Lawrence baby surely has the capability to live on, and if it doesn't, we're okay with it. Really. Source Here
Let's take a break from the revamped Scrubs and recall some bits of the old, wading through eight seasons' worth of memories. One of these recollections will probably be about Ted's band, which might've had more luck in the music industry if their lead didn't sweat so much. Lucky for us, the actor who plays him isn't as panicky, and he really has brought the a cappella quartet to life. Well, Ted's Band aka The Worthless Peons has actually existed even before Scrubs. They're actually called The Blanks, and they recently talked to Boston.com about their recent ventures. These include releasing their debut album "Riding the Wave" and touring cities for performances. Asked about their appearance on the ABC comedy, actor Sam Lloyd revealed just how far they managed to take it. Initially, they didn't believe they'd make it big in the business. Now though, most Scrubs fans know them well and can even belt out some of their tunes. "We kind of thought there wouldn't be much interest in it," the actor explained. "So we didn't really pursue it. We had our CD out, and then a manager got in touch with us through our website and he said he thought he could get us work and we said, "Well, good luck with that.'' And he did!" Since then, things have looked up for the band. "[I]t was kind of shocking. We were put on "Scrubs as a gag for just that reason, so that Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) could say, "This is ear rape! So when it suddenly started getting hip it was pretty phenomenal." The band consists of Sam Lloyd, Philip McNiven, George Miserlis, and Paul F. Perry, and have recently launched their debut album. "Riding the Wave" is sold at CD Baby, and features several original compositions and cover versions of songs. There are also a number of candid recordings from the Scrubs cast and crew. Even though the new Scrubs remains in limbo regarding its status on television, we're glad to see a bit of the old thanks to Ted. Even though they won't be appearing on the show anymore, there still is hope for Ted's Band aka The Worthless Peons aka The Blanks. Lloyd joked, "I think we're going to be Top 40 pretty soon. We're huge right now, I can't tell you, it's sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll for us right now - a cappella roll." Source Here

Tonight we're getting a Scrubs surprise, because the network has decided to air yet another episode after yesterday's comic installment. It's all because the series has been bumped to Wednesdays, joining the ABC comedy line-up at last. While it seems like an odd move for the network to make, it's probably because of scheduling conflicts. That, and the ratings needed by the show. Scrubs hasn't been performing that well, even though this revamped version isn't that bad at all. Here's the ABC promo for the move to Wednesdays. Source & Preview

Lucy will be taking center stage tonight on Scrubs, and will either succeed as a leader or become the target for everyone's rage. With how she's acting, it's bound to be both. What's worse is that the pressure of med school is building up for everyone, even the professors. On "Our Dear Leaders", it's hell week at Winston University. Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) assigns our blonde horse-lover as "team leader" to handle the group. Unfortunately, what he fails to see is that she can barely handle herself. But knowing Dr. Cox, he's only pushing Lucy (Kerry Bishe) further so she can prove herself. We know how great a mentor he can be, so it's only apt that he ends up torturing these murderers so they can rise to the challenge. For Lucy, meanwhile, it's serious business. She taps into her inner tyrant and bosses everyone around, blinded with the power of the title. Think of the horse-driven chariot she can ride! Okay, maybe that's just one fantasy we might see on tonight's episode. But we can only expect Lucy's friends to turn against her during this time, because as we know, it can sometimes get lonely at the top. That is, if Cole (Dave Franco) wouldn't want to keep his girlfriend company up there. With an ego like his, it's likely he'd wish to be around such a commanding woman like Lucy. Also on "Our Dear Leaders," Dr. Turk (Donald Faison) finds himself facing an obstacle to his career. An internationally renowned surgeon visits Winston University, and Sacred Heart's Chief of Surgery feels threatened by it. Will he do whatever it takes to convince the visitor that he's better? We've all seen how competitive Turk can be. On a previous episode he raced Perry throughout the school in the hopes of getting to the Quad first. Since he lost, he had to pay the consequences: saying "Dr. Cox, he's hella foxy" constantly. The visiting surgeon probably isn't as narcissistic as Cox can be, but we're pretty sure Turk won't be repeating those words tonight. Don't forget to catch the new episode of Scrubs, titled "Our Dear Leaders," as it airs on ABC at 9pm. Source Here
