It seems like just yesterday we were getting our TV shows back, and tonight, a couple of them are leaving us already. Scrubs and 30 Rock have the first finales of this screwy May sweeps period, and both episodes look like they're not to be missed.
First off, Scrubs. It's a curious case right now, anyway, as this should have been the show's series, not season, finale. NBC didn't want to renew the show for another year, and it seemed doomed to end without a proper finale — until ABC, which produces the show, stepped in and said it wanted to air another season itself. The announcement hasn't been officially made yet, but it's expected to come at next week's upfronts. In any case, the show is bidding its farewell to the NBC Thursday night lineup with a blockbuster episode playing homage to The Princess Bride, with some sets and costumes that must have blown the show's budget for a month.
Then, on 30 Rock, Liz Lemon might be pregnant! Well, Floyd and Dennis have both been in town recently . . . Also, Jack officially leaves GE for DC, where he finds things aren't quite what they expected. I'm most excited for the guest stars in this episode, which include Edie Falco reprising her role as CC and Matthew Broderick playing a character named Cooter. It was funny just typing that.
To check out a promo for the two finales — plus new episodes of My Name is Earl and The Office, which have their finales next week — just read more.
