NBC blinked. In the wake of The Apprentice's crushing defeat against Fox's American Idol Wednesday night, the network is moving its Donald Trump-helmed reality show back to Thursday night starting next week. Apprentice will air at 9 pm/ET following Friends and Will & Grace. Scrubs, meanwhile, shifts to Tuesdays at 9:30 pm/ET following Frasier. That leaves the struggling Tracy Morgan Show with no place to go but Saturday at 8 pm/ET a fate worse than cancellation.
