Scrubs Returns With Courteney Cox

If you're a Scrubs fan, there's one important thing to remember about tonight's premiere: The show makes its debut on ABC, not NBC, its previous longtime home. So tell your friends and check your DVR: The Sacred Heart doctors have, as the ads have been saying, found "a better place to operate."

The general consensus seems to be that in its new (and likely final) season, Scrubs is better than it's been in years. And that's good news, because if the show is really wrapping up this year, I'd love to see it happen on a high note. The first couple of episodes are going to be a little less silly, because, as Bill Lawrence said, "the show has to be borderline real for people to give a sh*t." (Fair enough.) But that doesn't mean it's not still clever and funny.

It also has Courteney Cox on board for a few weeks, starting with tonight's two new episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. The guest-starring gig led to her taking the lead in a new series from the Scrubs creator, and I'm excited to see her doing comedy again. Her character, the new chief of medicine, is described as a mix of "super-friendly and soulless," and that's clear just from a couple of clips. To check them out,

Two good episodes. The first one was just fun enough to get me back in touch with the characters and the second one was just serious enough to make me care. Courtney was great (loved the scene where she was smothering the patient). Love this show and everything about it - can't wait for a good season!

So glad its back, and I can see where they are going with the interns. But the show just wouldnt be the same without Zach Braff.

They always have great music thanks to Zach. I'm so glad this show is back. Courtenay was great.

Bleh! I have DishNetwork and we've been without ABC since December because the broadcasting company is in a dispute with them. No Scrubs! No Grey's Anatomy!

I hope it's a good season, final or not. Last season sucked! We are watching it now on Netflix. We own all the previous 6 seasons, which are sooooooooooooo amazing, but season 7 was really disappointing and we are hardly laughing at all . . . I'm excited to DVR the episodes tonight and watch them in a few days :D.

Is it really going to be their last season? That's a bummer, I have just started watching and getting to like it. Especially with the lameness of Grey's.
