For its first installment in 2010, Scrubs returns with a double dose of episodes with "Our White Coats" and "Our Couples." Tonight, this batch of med students finally embark on their journey as doctors, but must first figure out if they really belong in Sacred Heart. On the second episode of the hour, Lucy points out the couplings of the hospital on "Our Couples." Most of them are dysfunctional, sure, but they're there. With her relationship with Cole staring her in the face, it's no wonder she discovers the quirky romances of Sacred Heart. It's like the day the Janitor got married, when every couple in the hospital began experiencing problems with their relationships. There was Elliot and J.D., Turk (Donald Faison) and Carla (Judy Reyes), and even Perry (John C. McGinley) and Jordan (Christa Miller). Before we peg this new Scrubs as a repeat of the old though, let's consider the fact that [Med School] isn't even that bad. Don't miss this new episode as it airs tonight at 9pm on ABC. Source here
For its first installment in 2010, Scrubs returns with a double dose of episodes with "Our White Coats" and "Our Couples." Tonight, this batch of med students finally embark on their journey as doctors, but must first figure out if they really belong in Sacred Heart. On "Our White Coats," Lucy (Kerry Bishe), Drew (Michael Mosley) and Cole (Dave Franco) join the rest of the Winston University students for their white coat ceremony. But before they receive such an honor, all of them have to determine their personal reasons for being doctors. During the second season of Scrubs, J.D. (Zach Braff) received his own doctor's coat in the episode "My New Coat." He had to face added responsibilities in becoming more of a resident, all while getting in touch with his identity. Donning those white coats shouldn't be taken lightly though. Still, even the Janitor (Neil Flynn) got away with it. But back to the present. Another tale that unfolds in "Our White Coats" is that of Denise (Eliza Coupe), who has already gone through this and must face problems of her own. She's still uncertain about her relationship with Drew, so she seeks advice from Elliot (Sarah Chalke). Source here

It's the Scrubs sort-of holiday episode tonight, and this actually marks one big not-so surprise for many fans of the show: J.D. (Zach Braff) is nearing his last day of teaching at Sacred Heart. It's not until the sixth installment of this season though, so we have time to mourn. Or celebrate if you wish. Anyway, "Our Mysteries" is mostly going to be about J.D. letting go of his job while still clamoring for Turk's (Donald Faison) approval. Tension escalates between the two BFFs, because separation anxiety can be such a bummer. Meanwhile, Lucy (Kerry Bishe) is dealing with her own problems. She can't seem to find the courage to perform a basic medical procedure and needs practice on a real human. Even though she could approach her fellow students, they're always ready with their rejection of her. To Read More Click here .
Honestly, one wouldn't expect Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence to reveal plenty about the new season of his hit show. But from several of his interviews, we manage to unearth snippets and spoilers regarding this re-imagined ABC series we all know and love. Since the show premiered this month, we've been expecting a lot because the season 8 finale really set the standard high. We didn't think Scrubs [Med School] would live up to the original, but the fans are still giving it a chance. And with what Lawrence has divulged, we can see why. Scrubs Season 9 Spoilers below!

* Scrubs (9/8c ABC) J.D. has gone through many changes throughout the last nine seasons as he moved from timid intern to experienced doctor to mentor for the next generation of docs. But some things never change. He finds he still hungers for approval, and this time he wants it from Turk. Lucy, meanwhile, faces her own demons when she tries to summon the courage to perform a medical procedure on a real, live person. * Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (10/9c HBO ) Bryant Gumbel and the program's correspondents gather for a roundtable discussion of the year's top sports stories and their favorite segments of 2009. There should be plenty of winners to choose from, considering the fact that the series has won the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Journalism for 12 of the last 14 years. Segments considered could include a look at the world of professional bull riding; athletes carrying guns; concussions in high-school football, and a profile of skier Bode Miller. * National Geographic's Most Incredible Photos: Afghan Warrior (8/7c National Geographic ) If there is one thing National Geographic is celebrated for, it's the amazing photography, which allows outsiders a rare glimpse inside foreign cultures both near and far. This documentary lets us in on how some of those moments are captured, as it follows acclaimed photojournalist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Reza Deghati on assignment in Afghanistan, where he hopes to capture an image that could become a new national icon. * Dirty Jobs (9/8c Discovery Channel) Ah, Florida, the Sunshine State - world famous for its oranges, beaches, theme parks and worm-grunting. Wait, what? Mike visits the popular vacation destination, where he learns how to coax earthworms to the surface of Apalachicola National Forest and goes clamming at the Alligator Harbor Aquatic Preserve. * Family Style (9/8c Food Network ) The Food Network is airing a sneak peek at this new unscripted series, which follows Joey and Melissa Maggiore, siblings from San Diego, as they each try to open their own eateries in sunny SoCal. Will the friendly rivalry between these two foodies be sweet or salty? Only time will tell. Source Here
Why hasn't the name been officially changed to Scrubs: Med School, on all the TV schedules and stuff. Because to be honest this one is crucifying one of the best sitcoms ever.
The Futon Critic has reported that ABC intends to run double episodes of their Tuesday night comedies Scrubs and Better Off Ted throughout January beginning on Tuesday the 5th. ABC is also airing 2 episodes of Ted and one of Scrubs on Friday, January 1st (seriously...will anybody know or remember to watch these?!) They will then alternate episodes of the 2 shows on Tuesdays - airing Scrubs at 8 & 9 and Ted at 8:30 & 9:30. Collectively, these airings will burn off both shows' 13-episode orders. Both series have been struggling in the ratings since they premiered earlier this month. Thus, ABC dumping all of the episodes quickly might not be such a great sign for their future survival. From TV By the Numbers : "Though it won't likely quiet speculation from fans, this seems to significantly reduce (all the way down to zero) the likelihood that either show will get renewed for additional episodes." While I thus far have not been wowed by Scrubs: Med School, I'd be kind of sad to lose Ted, which I think has really excelled in its second season. How about you?
The Good Wife headed into its winter hiatus on the strength of its largest audience to date, helping CBS land yet another Tuesday night ratings win. The freshman legal drama pulled in 14.1 million viewers, handily defeating The Jay Leno Show (5.2 million viewers) and a repeat of The Forgotten (3.3 million viewers), capping off a characteristically strong Tuesday showing for CBS. New holiday episodes of NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles were watched by 20.5 million viewers and 17.4 million viewers, respectively. Putting up the best fight was NBC's The Sing-Off, which averaged 7 million viewers over two hours and improved 13 percent among adults 18-to-49. Leading out of another airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas (6.6 million viewers), ABC's Scrubs (4.3 million viewers) and Better Off Ted (3.2 million viewers) continued to plunge, with the former down 13 percent and the latter hitting an all-time low in the demo. On Fox, the So You Think You Can Dance performance finale pulled in 6.3 million viewers, but only 4 million viewers tuned into Gordon Ramsay's live cooking show. Two repeats of The Vampire Diaries averaged 1.4 million viewers for the CW. Source here
