It's done, but I think there's still two (including this one) episodes left to air.

What about the remaining episode of Better off Ted?

I was skeptical about this season working at all, but it started to grow on me. Sad to see it end now.

I thought it was too. I watched the first few episodes and they were pretty bad.

Is it for sure done now? I thought it just appeared likely or something. I hope they bring it back. It's not the best, but I still enjoy it.

Well, it hasn't officially been canned yet, but it hasn't been renewed yet either. My wife and I were pretty meh about the last few seasons of Scrubs, but this year it's really grabbed our attention, especially after Braff left. So I'm hoping it gets renewed.

i hope this gets atleast one more season and hopefully abc keeps this at the 8pm timeslot on wednesdays... it actually fits perfectly as a lead-in for the middle, modern family and cougar town.

Cole using the T-Pain app was pretty funny. I never realized the actor is James Franco's younger brother.

"Our Thanks" (episode 13) airs on 3/17 and is the last ep that was produced for this shortened season.

I would like to see one more season with this crew.

This show has really gotten a lot better since Braff left. I really think it is too bad they waited to move it to Comedy Wednesday. It would probably do better with The Middle as a lead-in than the other way around.

Yeah the characters took a while to get used to but now I'm really digging the show. Hopefully they're willing to try at least another season with this cast to see if the show can grow. Now that Braff is gone it feels like much more of a spin off then it did earlier in the season.

I've really enjoyed this season as well as just about any--once JD left. Then the writing tightened up. Sad to see it go, but Scrubs itself has been on for a LONG time. Thank goodness it wasn't cut after a year like so many other shows.

You won't:

this is what ABC posted on the Scrubs page on facebook.

"Scrubs is inviting you to celebrate the series finale - share your favorite Scrubs memory in the fan photo gallery. The photo with the most likes and comments by 3/16 at 8pm EST will be featured as the main profile pic. Here is an example to follow: *link*" March 8th.

"is getting ready for the second-to-last episode of the series tonight at 8|7c on ABC with "Our Driving Issues". What trouble will our Scrubbers find themselves in tonight?" Wednesday 2:46pm

On the comment session i asked them, if it was Series or Season and they replied: "Series".

This episode was better than any of Braff episode from the previous two seasons. Its too bad they had Braff and Chalke in this season at all. The reboot might have succeeded if it started with just the current cast, or at a minimum we could have had a full half-season of good episodes before the cancellation.

I agree. Braff was the weakest part of this season--largely because they COMPLETELY changed his character to make him completely unbelievable. I used to wonder how Scrubs could continue without him...then after this season started, I wondered how it could continue WITH him.

I wish they'd just done a complete reboot and even changed the name slightly. Keep Dr. Cox and Turk if you want, but ditch all the other previous storylines. All in all, the first half of the season had a lot of previous season cameos that new viewers wouldn't have "got." And I think that hurt its chances to stand alone.

Doing away with the security guards helped quite a bit too.
