Final Two [scrubs] Episodes to Air in March, CW Renews 5 Series; Nick at Nite Overnight Change Has More Urkel, Less Cosby

ABC has announced that the final two episodes of the season of [scrubs] [Med School] edition will air on a special night and time on Wednesday, March 10 and 17 at 8:00pm ET/PT on ABC Comedy Wednesday! As J.D. and Turk would say, "awe-some!" [scrubs] is airing instead of Modern Family encores, but of course Modern Family will be airing in its regular 9pm slot. [scrubs] hasn't aired since end of January (Jan. 26).
There is still no official word yet if and when the final two episodes of the season of Better off Ted will air or not. Maybe on Wednesday, March 24 and 31 at 8pm? We shall see. Stay with us! Will both series make it back next season? Or at least [scrubs]? We don't know yet, but stay tuned!

The CW has ordered five of their hits back for 2010-11! Freshman Hit The Vampire Diaries, dramas Gossip Girl, 90210, Supernatural and reality staple America’s Next Top Model will all return next season.
The CW Network has given early pickups to these five series for next season, which includes four signature dramas and the reality staple. All five shows will return in Fall 2010.
I'm quite surprised 90210 got an early pick-up since its ratings are lacking and it hasn't even returned yet from its long hiatus (3 months!). Veteran dramas Smallville and One Tree Hill are still on the bubble, while freshman Melrose Place is also on the bubble. It is too early for a pick-up of mid-season drama Life UneXpected, so the jury is still out on that. There has to be something not coming back next season. Could it be Melrose Place? Stay with us in the coming months for an answer to that. We will for sure know by May at the upfronts.

Nick at Nite made a minor schedule change on Monday night. They removed one of the hours for The Cosby Show. The series was airing every morning from 4-6am. Now it has been cut to just the 5am hour. Taking over the 4am hour will now more Family Matters. That series will still remain airing Sun-Thurs in the 3am hour and every morning in the 6am hour as well. Friday and Saturday nights in the 3am hour is an extra hour of Everybody Hates Chris.
View the updated Nick at Nite schedule. Stay with us for March highlights in the coming days!
