Should You Watch the New Scrubs? - Featured

From E! Online: OK, here's the truth: We were skeptical about the idea of a new Scrubs . As a general rule, shows without Law & Order in the title don't need a ninth season. By the time a series gets that old, the gimmick is usually played out, the castmembers and writers are burned out and the audience is ready to sign out. Especially with the knowledge that some original castmembers were either gone completely or only appearing part-time, Scrubs: The Next Generation just seemed a little desperate on ABC's part. But we just got the first two eps of Scrubs season nine in the mail, and here's what we think after actually seeing the finished product: Good job, TV people! The new Scrubs is frankly just great. All the usual absurdity remains, along with just enough of J.D., Turk, Dr. Cox and Kelso to make the series seem like the one you know and love, but the new kids all turn out to be incredibly watchable and fresh. If you've been a Scrubs fan for a while, their humor and peccadilloes will seem familiar, but the new people make everything seem shiny, fresh and new. But before we get too deep into telling you about the new kids, let's circle back to the beloved old gang. You'll be happy to hear that both Neil Flynn and Sarah Chalke make token appearances in the first episode back (airing Dec. 1). The show gives Neil Flynn's Janitor a very amusing exit story that we won't spoil here. And actually pregnant Chalke appears in the season premiere as J.D.'s seven-months-preggo baby mama. The rest of the originals keep doing their thing: J.D. (Zach Braff) and Turk (Donald Faison) are still in love, Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) is still a delightful jerk, the Todd (Robert Maschio) is still a perv, Kelso (Ken Jenkins) is still a curmudgeon and all is right with the world. As for the so-called "next generation," we encounter them in the lovely new university hospital, which appears to be a modernist building situated on a Southern plantation. (It's a million times prettier than dumpy ol' Sacred Heart, and you'll dig it.) Eliza Coupe returns as prickly, seemingly emotionless Denise, except now she's met her match in older-than-average, smartass med student Drew (Michael Mosley). The new antagonist is Dave Franco, who plays Cole, a smug, sleazy, entitled douche whose character seems to be half Chuck Bass, half wannabe. (It takes him about 15 minutes to start giving Turk fits.) The standout, though, is Kerry Bishé as Lucy, a fragile and sweet young med student who takes J.D.'s role as Cox's punching bag of choice. Lucy is hilariously naive and hopeful, and you can't help but care what happens to her. In short, we retract all our previous reservations about season nine, and we're delighted that creator Bill Lawrence and ABC were able to work out a continuation to the series. The deal seems to be paying off nicely for us fans! Scrubs returns with a one-hour block of new episodes Dec. 1 at 9 p.m. Be there. Source Here

I'm sure you're all aware that the 9th season of the hit show is scheduled to begin airing on ABC on December the 1st this year, yippee. If you were not aware... where have you been!?

Our Stuff Gets Real 7. Our New Girl-Bro 8. Our White Coats 9. Our Lost Causes Also, this season is scheduled to have 13 episodes in total, so I'm afraid I don't know what the last 4 are called.

Sarah Chalke Spills Scrubs Secrets

[SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this article if you don't want to know how Scrubs will change this season.] When Scrubs returns, Elliot will be expecting, according to Sarah Chalke. Scrubs executive producer Bill Lawrence decided to write Chalke's real-life pregnancy into the story line. "It's kind of a time cut into the future, so J.D. and I are already married and pregnant with our first kid," Chalke tells Hollywood 411's Marc Istook Tuesday. Chalke, whose due date is Dec. 25, is happy about Lawrence's decision. "Bill was very generous to write it in, so I'm not, like, carrying a giant chart or something in front of my belly all the time," she says. "I'm going to do a bunch [of episodes] until this baby gets too big for me to go to work anymore," she says. She adds that Zach Braff is also on board for the first six episodes; John C. McGinley and Donald Faison will be series regulars on the rebooted Scrubs, which returns to ABC in January. Source Here

Scrubs Season 9 Secrets Revealed: Pretty Good News For Scrubs Fans - Featured

I, like most Scrubs fans, have been really down on the idea of a Season 9 with Dr. Cox and Turk becoming med-school teachers. While I still think the new season will be a let down, there has been a small silver lining announced that should make Scrubs fans a little more excited about Season 9. *****************Spolier Alert******************************** When Scrubs returns, Elliot will be expecting, according to Sarah Chalke.

Spotlight On TV Shows That Have Outstayed Their Welcome - Featured

Television is one of the world's favorite entertainment pastimes, and every year dozens of networks try their best to win the viewer's hearts and their precious time. The competition gets fierce in the fall when all the major shows come back, and everyone is always looking for the next big hit. In time, however, those shows that we once loved or thought so well of begin to show signs of age and wear. Sure we enjoyed their adventures for the first few seasons, but all good things must come to an end ... some of them sooner than others. Here's a look at some of the shows that have outstayed their welcome and should seriously think of retiring before their memory is more annoying than nostalgic: Starpulse.com - Spotlight On TV Shows That Have Outstayed Their Welcome Photo courtesy of Starpulse.com

Scrubs Rounds Out Season 9 Cast - Featured

As we have already read about in great detail, Scrubs will be a very different show when it returns to ABC in 2010. Gone (minus a few episodes) will be Zach Braff, as well as Sacred Heart as the show's chief setting. Replacing this will be a medical school/teaching setting, with Donald Faison and John C. McGinley taking over duties as the series' leads. We already knew that Eliza Coupe - Denise from last season - would be sticking around the series - and now we have 3 additional faces that will be joining her: Dave Franco (Left) as "Cole, a charming, conservative, confidently stupid and incredibly entitled medical student whose family donated a wing to the school." Franco appeared previously on Privileged , Greek and Do Not Disturb . Michael Mosley (Center) as "Drew, a scruffy and attractive thirysomething med student, who is getting his second shot at medical school after a major meltdown 10 years ago when he was a top candidate at Harvard Medical School." Mosley recently appeared on Kings , and was also seen in The Proposal and Kidnapped . Kerry Bishe (Right) as "Lucy, a 22-year-old first-year med student who is an attractive all-American girl and the first in her close-knit family of commercial fishermen to go to college." Bishe is a relative newcomer, but made appearances in Virtuality , Royal Pains and Life on Mars . What do you think of the new Scrubs cast members? Source 1 and Source 2

Scrubs: Why Turk is the New Mr. Belding

Full Post The remarkably resilient Scrubs is coming back next season as a very different series. With Zach Braff no longer a series regular, the show is being completely overhauled, now focusing on a medical school where familiar faces Turk (Donald Faison) and Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) teach. I recently sat down with Faison to discuss this new incarnation of Scrubs, and what it will be like for J.D.'s best buddy/"Chocolate Bear" Turk to take on his new responsibilities. And while Scrubs actually won't be officially changing titles, Faison was quick to give the new version of the show a humorous title, as you'll see below. Faison has also appeared in the past on his friend Seth Green's Robot Chicken, and discussed his work on that show, along with Green and his Robot Chicken collaborators' upcoming series - the Voltron inspired Titan Maximum. IGN TV: When do you go back to work on Scrubs? Donald Faison: August 31st is the first day we shoot. There's a read through coming up and a picnic tomorrow - the Scrubs / Cougar Town picnic. [Editor's Note: Cougar Town is Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence's new series] It's been a year since I've worked on that show, so it's kind of weird to go back. Literally, a year. Usually it's like six months off, but it's been a year since we actually filmed anything for Scrubs, so I'm a little excited. IGN: I'd imagine it must be a little strange, because two years ago, before the writers' strike, you thought you would be wrapping up Scrubs. And then a year ago, it seemed like okay, that would be the final season... Faison: This isn't the same Scrubs. This is Scrubs: The New Class. It's sort of like Saved by the Bell: The New Class.. I'm Belding though. I'm not Screech. IGN: [Laughs] So does that make Cox Screech? Faison: Cox is definitely Screech. I'm Mr. Belding. IGN: What did you think when Bill [Lawrence] and the network came to you with the idea for this new version of the show? Faison: Well, I had already agreed to do another show called The Law, with Cedric the Entertainer. It didn't go, unfortunately. So it was up in the air whether I was going to be able to do Scrubs or not. And at the last minute, it worked out. Bill never really came to me. It was like, "We're going to do this show. Do you want to do it?" I got a call from ABC and they were like, "Do you want to do the show?" I was like, "What's the show?" They said, "We're thinking about doing Scrubs: The New Class." I was like, "Yeah, I'll do it!" Kelsey Grammer had a small part on Cheers and then wound up going on to do Fraiser, where he made a crapload of money and it's probably some of his best work to date. So anytime you get the opportunity to work, I suggest you take it. So I took it. IGN: You've played this character for a long time, but do you think it will be interesting to have him in a new scenario? You're actually shooting the show in a different place now too! Faison: It'll be awesome. We're on the same lot as Cougar Town, so it'll be an even bigger family. And we were getting so sick and tired of that abandoned hospital! There was a really bad asbestos problem in that hospital, and we didn't take care of it while we were there. IGN: So good luck to the next guy? Faison: Yeah, good luck to whoever goes there next! But yeah, it kind of got old, so this makes it even more exciting. It makes the show feel new, because we're on a different lot and stuff like that. IGN: Do you know how much we'll see Carla and Turk's home life? Faison: I don't know. I know Zach [Braff], myself and Johnny [John C. McGinley] have signed on for a lot of episodes. Zach's signed on for six, I've signed on for all of them and so has Johnny. I don't know how often we'll see Sarah [Chalke]'s character, I don't know how often we'll see Judy [Reyes]'s character.

Scrubs Star All Set To Welcome Her First Child â?? A Baby Girl!

Hey everyone! While our favorite, Scrubs TV show is undergoing some serious changes, the life of one of its stars is also on the verge of undergoing a drastic change. Yes friends, I am talking about none other than Judy Reyes. The actress is currently in the third trimester of her pregnancy and she has recently received the good news that she will be giving birth to a female child. This is going to be the first experience of parenthood for Judy and her boyfriend George Valencia. The actress, who portrays the character of Nurse Carla Espinosa on Scrubs TV show, has said that she was feeling great and taking pleasure in a pregnancy which has been free of any complications, other than a little morning sickness she had experienced in the first trimester. The news about the pregnancy of this actress from Scrubs, who was earlier married to married to writer/director Edwin M. Figueroa, was first revealed in June. Coming from an all girl family, Judy was reported as saying that even though everyone was praying for her to have a boy, she had felt long back that her baby would be a girl and that is what it turned out to be. In keeping with her pregnancy, some changes had to be made in Judy’s character on Scrubs. Although she will not be a part of the regular cast in the upcoming ninth season of the show, she will surely be seen making several guest appearances throughout the new season. Commenting on the preparations that she and George have made to welcome their little angel, the actress said that although the couple has not started with anything as yet, but they plan to get a nursery ready in the next month. It seems right as well, since Judy’s due date is in November. But, let us congratulate this wonderful actress, who has impressed us through her role on Scrubs, across all its eight seasons, as we wait for her early return on Scrubs TV show! Source :
