I'm not really sure how this snuck up on me, but the long-awaited Scrubs Musical is tonight!
With Arrested Development now gone, and The Office getting better and better ratings (did you know it's the most watched show by people aged 18-49 who make more than $100,000? Watch The Office and you'll get rich!), Scrubs officially claims the title as "The Funniest Show on TV That No One Appreciates".
While it does my heart good to see how many new fans the show is gaining due to its reruns on Comedy Central (which are pretty much mandatory viewing every night from 7:00 - 8:00), and its ratings have been on the rise since it moved to Thursday nights at 9:00, Scrubs still seems to flirt with cancellation each season due to ratings.
Tonight is your chance to give Scrubs the love it deserves. Sure, Grey's Anatomy is on - but we all know that the action will go down in the second half hour, after Scrubs is over. Also, will the doctors be singing and dancing during Grey's? I think not. Advantage: Scrubs.
While I'm sure there are doubters out there, anyone who has seen the Buffy Musical can attest that when a great TV show does a musical right, it's pretty much the best thing ever... and judging by the reviews I read in this morning's New York Times and New York Daily News, this is going to be the balls.
9:00 pm. NBC.
BONUS! The "music video" version of "Guy Love". It's even funnier than the original!
