Scrubs is returning to ABC on December 1st for a 9th season, which may leave some wondering "Wasn't that show cancelled years ago?" and others somewhat excited about the impending birth of J.D. and Elliott's spawn. Another Bill Lawrence project that remains forever tucked away in the dusty corners of my memory is Clone High. Clone High was a short-lived cartoon that aired on MTV during the 2002-2003 season. Only 13 episodes exist of what I will dare to call a mini-masterpiece of the animated genre; an opus to the primetime cartoon.
Thursday, May 8, 2008 could have gone down in history as the comedy's final telecast if that network had its way. And no wonder. Despite its cult fanbase, Scrubs still draws relatively miniscule ratings in NBC's Thursday comedy lineup. (Which is saying something, considering how not-well most of the other series do.) And there's no upside, right? The show's been on the air for seven years. It's not like it's going to "grow" ratings.
