Scrubs Season 5 Finally Coming back to NBC on January 3rd 2006 8pm central time. Scrubs is my favorite show on TV and I was worried for a while that the show wasn’t coming back. Looks like it will be on right after My Name is Earl, which hopefully will be a good slot for it. If you have not seen scrubs ever, you should really check out season 1 and 2’s DVD’s. This is some of the smartest, funniest comedy ever made and plays right up to my type of humor.
