The new season of “Scrubs” starts in a few weeks, now over on ABC. The one major difference we can already detect in the network switch is that, for the first time in years, “Scrubs” is actually getting some promotion. I almost jumped ship after last season - the increasingly daffy J.D. was starting to wear incredibly thin, and even Dr. Cox’s attempts at intentional self-caricature couldn’t quite save the sinking ship. In fact, I didn’t watch the last three episodes until two months ago, and even though they were aired out of order, the show did manage to recapture a scintilla of its original magic, at least enough to make me look forward to this season. Also, there’s almost nothing else on fucking TV this year). With “Mad Men” done for the year, “Dexter” and “Amazing Race” nearly done with their runs, and “Pushing Daisies” “Boston Legal,” and the unappreciated “Dirty Sexy Money” cancelled, there’s nothing left except Thursdays and “HIMYM” come January. “Chuck,” so far, isn’t even on the winter schedule.

Anyway, per ABC’s promotional efforts, here’s an actual commercial, a month in advance, promoting the new season of “Scrubs,” which will kick off with the stunt-casting of Courtney Cox (I’m not a fan of stunt casting, but both “Scrubs” and “HIMYM” do it phenomenally). The promo itself is a very small variation on a joke they’ve already done 400 times. But you know what? It’s still funny:

And while we’re running promos, here’s the promo for the last half season of “BSG.” I know you folks love it. I dug the first season, suffered through a slow second season, and gave up mid way through the third. That damn show is great for four great episodes per year, but the filler it throws at you in between just isn’t worth it. Besides, I hear the last Cylon was actually Ashton Kutcher, which will air in a very special crossover episode of “Punk’d.”
