‘Scrubs’ is sewn up — quietly
The network’s final “Scrubs” episode airs next week, concluding its run with the network after seven seasons. But you’d never know it from watching NBC or perusing the entertainment media.
At the conclusion of what was the comedy’s third-to-last episode on NBC on Thursday, viewers were simply urged to check out the show’s interactive features on NBC.com. The usual array of creator and cast interviews that usually accompany the final episodes of a concluding series are likewise largely absent.
The super low-key exit for “Scrubs” is tied to what’s become the worst-kept secret in Hollywood: that the veteran comedy is moving to ABC. The long-pending deal for ABC to pick up 18 episodes of “Scrubs” for next season is effectively, pretty much, essentially, done.
