ABC: Picking up the Scraps

by Angel Cohn April 7, 2008 10:41 am
It's been buzzed about for a while that ABC might pick up Scrubs (since NBC has no interest in the comedy). Their goal is to give the show the final season send-off that it should have gotten, before the writer's strike went and mucked everything up. Oh, and they want to make a little money too. But now they are reportedly eyeing the CBS's New Adventures of Old Christine. Do they not have any of their own ideas for funny stuff, that they want to be known as the home for other network's dumped (or potentially dumped) shows? Are they just being frugal, instead of launching new series from scratch and raising viewer awareness, they can just say, "Hey, you kind of liked this show, come watch it over here?" Not a terrible plan from a budget standpoint, but do they really want to be known as the leftover network? Hawking formerly tasty treats in a new package, branded as today's cup of tea? Too much of that could leave viewers with a bad taste in their mouths. Then again, this is the same network that's bringing back According to Jim (again), clearly bad taste isn't something they are worried about. At least Scrubs and Christine would be a step up.
