Not all of the scheduling moves ABC made on Thursday carried the taint of gloom and doom. (See: "Dirty Sexy, Daisies and Eli All Goners.")
The Alphabet net has announced a Tuesday, Jan. 6, premiere for Scrubs, which until now had aired on NBC. J.D., Turk and the gang will air double-episodes Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET for two weeks, before settling into a Tuesdays-at-9:30 home.
In other ABC scheduling news, Life on Mars is getting moved to Wednesdays at 10 — where it will lead out of Lost (starting Jan. 28, Mars' next fresh outing). In doing so, the Thursdays-at-10 slot will be freed up for Private Practice, which will air immediately after its mother show, Grey's Anatomy starting Jan. 8.
Life on Mars also has received an order for four additional Season 1 scripts, for a total of 17 thus far.
