Television--- Scrubs Gets Spared, Many other Shows Get Axed
NBC officially kicked off upfront week with its presentation to advertisers earlier today.

The biggest question mark headed into the presentation was Scrubs, which has now been renewed for another season but will not be returning to the line-up until midseason. The same goes for Crossing Jordan... it has been renewed, but is not on the fall schedule.

The news also came down that Fear Factor has been officially cancelled, along with E-Ring, Joey, Four Kings, Three Wishes, Conviction, Teachers, Heist, and Inconceivable.

My Name is Earl and The Office will move to Thursdays at 8:00 and 8:30, respectively. Both series currently air on Thursdays at 9:00 and 9:30, respectively.

The Donald Trump version of The Apprentice has one more season coming, but it could be the last season if ratings don't improve.

None of the other networks have made their upfront presentations yet, but CBS has apparently renewed The New Adventures of Old Christine and Close to Home. Also, King of Queens has been renewed, but will be returning to the line-up in midseason instead of the fall due to Kevin James' movie-filming obligations.
