EW is reporting that when Scrubs returns next season it will suck harder than a Thai Hooker with a meth habit.
Scrubs boss Bill Lawrence said his cancellation-defying comedy would undergo an extreme makeover in its ninth season, and, man, he wasn’t kidding. When the show returns next winter, the action will shift from the hospital to the classroom and make med-school professors of John C. McGinley’s Dr. Cox and Donald Faison’s Turk.
“It’ll be a lot like Paper Chase as a comedy,” Lawrence tells me. “It’s going to be a different show. It’ll still be life-and-death stakes, but if the show is just Scrubs again in the hospital with a different person’s voiceover, it would be a disaster and people would be mad.”
Great… Now all we need is The Fonz on a motorcycle jumping over a shark. This type of crap just doesn’t fly. Remember Aftermash? How about Saved by the Bell, The College years. Those shows were so bad they actually broke some televisions.
