Will Thursday night's jam-packed TV lineup totally stress you out?

Posted on


145952__scrubs_lREMINDER: Tonight’s premiere of Scrubs marks the first of NBC’s four-comedies-in-a-row Thursday nights. Starting at 8, it’ll go My Name Is Earl, The Office, Scrubs, 30 Rock. I just watched Scrubs, and was delighted by the presence of the Blue Man Group (pictured, with Zach Braff), Pop Rocks, and multiple dance parties set to Turk‘s new “Bye Bye Bye” ringtone. And don’t worry, Dr. Cox’s fro remains as intense as an ’80s teenage girl’s. That’s quite a relief.

I’m personally psyched about NBC returning to its ’90s-esque comedy block. I mean, yeah, I’ll have to set two separate DVRs to record four different networks and then spend eight hours watching all the shows, but I can sleep when I’m dead. What about you? Is the all-star Thursday stunt getting to be a bit too much, or will you remain faithful to your faves and just watch them over the weekend, before you die? Remember, there’s no Julie Cooper in heaven. (Go to hell.)
