Don;t be so sure about that. Stephen McPherson has said he loves Better off Ted and scrubs and hinted that one of them will likely take the 8 pm time slot! Well us Better off Ted fans are being much more vocal, and he's soon going to receivea gift he will surely appreciate!

I wouldn't get your hopes up too much... he still doesn't think either show is compatible with the Wednesday lineup. But, he said, "Comedy is comedy." They may double-dip new eps of the Wednesday shows to fill that spot instead of bringing on Scrubs or Ted. Or they may put in that new Alyssa Milano show Romantically Challenged.

In other words, it's looking about as bleak for Ted fans as it did before.

This does not bode well for Better Off Ted... I was hoping it would squeeze into the Wednesday schedule.

the way they've been burning off Scrubs and Ted, i don't think they'll come back for 10th/3rd seasons. (7 episodes aired in the past month, with 2 more of each slated for tonight)

How many episodes have you seen? Just curious. Because the "ensemble" part of the show is really finding its footing with the more recent episodes.

PLus as much as I really like Cougar Town the episodes the focus on her "cougar-ness" are usually weaker than the episodes that highlight the ensemble cast.

Just fantastic! Maybe I'll catch up on The Middle after its first season finished. But I'm VERY happy that Modern Family and Cougar Town are renewed!

Cool, Modern Family is funny and smartly written, so is Welcome to Cougar Town is just a different way. I am pleased.
