This is mostly to remind people who tape these show about the time changes.

Friends 8 - 8:40pm THE ONE WITH THE MALE NANNY
Spoiler:
In the Emmy Award-winning comedy's 200th episode, a jealous Ross mocks Rachel's choice of an over sensative male nanny (Freddie Prinze Jr. aka Mr. Sarah Michelle Gellar) for Emma while Phoebe must choose between 2 ardent suitors -- new friend Mike (Paul Rudd) or visiting former boyfriend David (Hank Azaria). Elsewhere, Chandler feels threatened by Monica's constant chatter about a male co-worker whose sense of humor outwits even his.
Will & Grace 8:40 - 9:20pm BOARDROOM AND A PARKED PLACE
Spoiler:
Will's budding interest in a fellow lawyer in his office is nipped upon the arrival of his firm's aggressive new boss (Gene Wilder), who whips the troops into shape and orders Will to fire his friend -- until Will discovers the real reason behind the false bravado. Meanwhile, Grace and Jack are shocked to discover that their highfalutin' pal Karen is now poorer than a church mouse -- and living in her limo.
Scrubs 9:20 - 10pm MY FIRST STEP
Spoiler:
Dr. Cox's efforts to take a stand against the evil drug companies are thwarted by the seductive charm of pharmaceutical sales rep Julie Keaton (Heather Locklear). She takes advantage of the fact that Dr. Kelso has assigned Dr. Cox to coordinate a dinner reception sponsored by the drug company to pursue Dr. Cox in other arenas. Elliot and J.D. disagree about who is the better doctor, but when Elliot disregards his advice about how to treat her patient and the patient dies, it is actually J.D. that learns a lesson about taking chances. Meanwhile, Turk tries to encourage Carla to take her career to the next level by enrolling her in a nurse practitioner course.
E.R. 10 - 11pm ONE CAN ONLY HOPE
Spoiler:
Dr. Corday clashes with the new surgical resident (Don Cheadle) over his intervention in the treatment of a sickly young woman (Nora Zimmett) who signs a "Do Not Resuscitate" agreement while Abby wonders aloud about the erratic behavior of her visiting brother (Thomas Everett Scott). Elsewhere, Abby feels torn when she is caught between an official nurse's complaints against Dr. Kovac, her former lover. In addition, Dr. Pratt comforts Dr. Chen after she feels threatened by a patient and Corday suspects that an unconscious, 14-year old female patient has been sexually assaulted.

Edited to add: You can vote for more than one show above.

I'll manually record the first 30 minutes of Friends off my Replay-TV.

I'll watch Survivor live and record Do Over on the WB at 8:30. I refuse to bow to NBC and their ridiculous scheduling tactics. Morons.

CBS for me from 9-11.

None ... sorry, Scrubs. You're a great show, but I refuse to play ball with the asswipes at NBC.

Ironically, instead of Must-Avoid TV, I too will be watching Do Over ... a show produced by Warren Littlefield himself.

Never saw Scrubs.

Not too fond of Will & Grace.

I hate Friends with a PASSION.

ER it is. [On tape when I get back from doing my radio show, that is.]

Just saw the supersized Friends, and I was not impressed at all. I don't think that I laughed once. Scrubs is the only thing on NBC on Thursday night worth watching anymore.

I taped Friends, Scrubs (the best comedy on TV) and ER. ER was great, but Friends could have been better - I don't think Freddie Prinze, Jr. was necessary. David Cross would have made a great 'manny'.

watching Scrubs (w/ Heather Locklear) tomorrow. is she joining the cast regularly or is this a guest spot? I am assuming it's a guest spot...

FPJ is a bad case of drizzling turds. He's sucked in every single thing he's done, and tonight's "Friends" was no exception.

Honk!

Friend was OK, but Scrubs was pretty hilarious. Heather Locklear slapping her butt did it for me.

Yeah ... it's a real shame it's sandwiched in between these other two tired snoozeathons.

That and Carla saying that if Turk wanted a threeway, she would be ok with her and then Turk going over and asking.

I watched all the shows although W&G was only ok for me.

What happened at the end of Friends?

My Tivo stopped just as Ross was telling FPJ that it just wasn't working out with him as the nanny.

Stupid supersized crap.

Not anywhere near a fan of Prinze but I actually did think he was decent if not outstanding on the show.

That happened to me too! Stupid NBC. First, they mess up my ReplayTV recording by doing a 40 minute show (i had to manually record Scrubs, since it didn't start around 8:30pm, as normal).. Then to top it off, the show actually goes 43 minutes, making me miss the last 3 minutes. If they're gonna mess with the times, why not tell us that it's 43 minutes instead of 40!!!

What morons.

Ironic, the same thing happened with my ReplayTV, stopped at the exact same spot.. I came on here hoping to find someone to tell me what happened, did Ross actually fire him or what?

I still use an old fashioned VCR. And if I am not going to keep the show I taped, I just always tape from 7:00 to 10:00 so I am not cursing myself later.

I finally got around to watching Friends and W&G.

Friends had some LOL parts, it was a so-so episode, the Hank Azaria bit was painful to watch. The Freddie Prinze Jr. bit was more palatable, he nailed the sensitive Manny part to a tee. Joey still is the funniest.

W&G was ok, Gene Wilder's bit was funny, but the rest was growing a bit tiresome.
