NBC to Return to Thursday Comedy Glory

Beginning November 30, NBC will air "My Name Is Earl," "The Office," "Scrubs" and "30 Rock" in a row on Thursday nights.

"We are excited about the prospect of two-hours of top-notch comedy on Thursday nights, which includes the return of 'Scrubs,'" Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment said today. "We will stay on-brand with the best comedy block on television, which will position us for the future on the night."

"Scrubs" has yet to premiere this season while "30 Rock" currently airs Wednesday nights at 8PM ET/PT.

The move is reminiscent of the glory days of NBC when "Friends" and "Seinfeld" anchored NBC's Thursday night schedule leading into the powerhouse drama "ER."
