(I'm actually pretty encouraged about those numbers.)
Yea I'm curious to see how it will do against regular competition.

No kidding about the numbers ... I thought I was a huge fan of the show, but I didn't even KNOW that the episodes had aired until I saw them on my Tivo the next day.

It was like they were going down a checklist of what people expect in scrubs except it wasn't really funny. Were there any major changes to the team? It seemed like something was off. I hope it is just a fluke.
I have to agree with you. I was quite disappointed. The first was bad, the second was better, but not by much.

It may be true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or in the case of "Scrubs," about 850,000 hearts.

After being held off the fall schedule, the NBC comedy began its fifth season Tuesday (Jan. 3) with two episodes that averaged about 7.85 million viewers. That's not bad in the context of the show's recent history, but it's significantly below NBC's average in the 9 p.m. Tuesday hour this season.

For the 2004-05 season, when it aired mostly at 9:30 on Tuesdays, "Scrubs" drew just over 7 million viewers per week, so Tuesday's episodes represent an improvement on that front. The two episodes beat all other entertainment programming in the hour among adults 18-49, NBC's target demographic (ABC's coverage of the Orange Bowl won the hour handily).

Continuing the glass-half-full perspective, NBC further notes that the 9 p.m. episode's 3.8 rating among adults 18-49 was "Scrubs'" best ever in that timeslot, where 20 episodes have aired. The 9:30 episode improved to 4.1 in 18-49, the show's best performance since early last season.

On the not-insignificant downside, "Scrubs" fell well short of what "My Name Is Earl" has delivered so far this season on Tuesdays: better than 12 million viewers and 18-49 ratings that regularly top 5.0 ("Earl" moves to Thursdays beginning this week, along with "The Office").

The 9:30 "Scrubs," which drew a little over 7.9 million viewers, was pretty much on par with "The Office's" season average of 8.1 million.

I wonder if it would have done better if it had been put on Thursday with Earl. Anyone know what the numbers for the new sitcom that was on during that night?

Finally saw the second episode over the weekend. Now that was funny.
I'm not usually one for Fart humor but that ATM/Fart joke was pretty funny.
