Zach Braff I’m a huge Scrubs fan, so this news made my day. Zach Braff has just finished negotiating a payraise for a seventh season, so it looks like a pretty safe bet that the show will return next year. Now I know, some fans of the show have not been as entertained as much as in years’ past, but it is still a solid show with excellent writing and characters. Compared to some of the drivel on TV, I think this show still continues to bring the funny. While this could mean a big payday for Braff, there is one teensy issue—his pay is contingent upon the show returning for a seventh season. No renewal, no big payoff—which rings up in the neighborhood of $350,000 per episode for the one year deal. This puts Braff’s paycheck in Charlie Sheen territory, although Sheen’s Two and a Half Men averages 15.2 million viewers each week and Scrubs only draws about 6.9 million. Braff will next be seen in The Ex, a comedy co-starring Jason Bateman. Two of my faves on the big screen? Be still my heart.

30 Rock Oh man, I was hoping that moving 30 Rock to Thursday night would give it a little kick in the ratings pants. Quite the contrary, actually, as 30 Rock did even worse than in its previous timeslot. Last night’s show aired from 9:20 through 10:00 p.m., a result of the “supersize” Thursday night. Despite its lead-in by The Office, 30 Rock didn’t manage to maintain much of that audience. The show only had 5.2 million viewers on board. Previously, 30 Rock aired in the wasteland of Wednesday evening, paired with the now cancelled Twenty Good Years. In that time slot, they were drawing 6.3 million viewers at 8:00 p.m. I know there’s a little somethin’ out there called Grey’s Anatomy that is definitely going to pull viewers from 30 Rock, so we’ll see if the show stays put on Thursdays or gets moved elsewhere. Or, worse yet, gets cancelled (gulp). Come on folks, show it some love!
