ABC Renews 'Modern Family', Not Sure About 'Scrubs'


The network's honcho Stephen McPherson said while the Wednesday comedies continue to perform well, the resurrected 'Scrubs' is not delivering a number they desire.

ABC is putting a strong faith in its Wednesday comedies line-up. The network announced during its winter Television Critics Association panel Tuesday, January 12 morning that it has renewed newbies "Modern Family", "Cougar Town" and "The Middle" for a second season. All three have performed solidly in ratings since their Fall premieres.

The Alphabet however, has no good news for "Ugly Betty" which joins the Wednesday slot and others like "Scrubs" and "Better Off Ted". Nevertheless, Head of Programming Stephen McPherson revealed they hope "Ugly" would grow after it was moved from Friday, saying "We still love that show."

As for "Scrubs", McPherson said, "I did resurrect 'Scrubs', so I would hope that there's a potential that that could grow, but I'm not going to lie and say those numbers are working for us." He added, there is no plan to move either "Scrubs" or "Ted" to replace canceled "Hank" on Wednesday. "We didn't feel those shows were compatible with Wednesday night," McPherson noted. "That night is very strong, and we can find a replacement for the Hank time slot."
