Default TVLand Programming is hard to figure out

I can never figure out when a certain show will be on because it seems like they preempt every show on their schedule as if to force the viewer into watching a lousy reality show or a bad movie. Thank goodness for the off button on the remote. Classic tv will always be around-at least I hope. New generations need to discover it. WGN America is bringing Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie to their schedule next month. And Coach and In the Heat of the Night. I don't think it is just Tvland that has gone down the tubes-I mean have you guys tried to watch the news lately? Or should I say the so-called news? They seem more interested in celebrity and just tearing each other down. I for one am debating about keeping the cable. I watch an analog tv anyway-why would I want to get a converter box? Can anybody give me any tips on HDtv-if all the shows I watch are in full screen what is the benefit? Thanks for any info you can provide.

TV Land Gets its 'Scrubs' on and Goes on Rounds During a Labor Day Marathon on Monday, September 1


NEW YORK, Aug 25, 2008 -- TV Land's got just what the doctor ordered with a prescription sure to tickle the funny bone when "Scrubs" premieres on Labor Day with a 7-hour marathon on Monday, September 1. Join J.D., Turk, Elliot, Carla, Dr. Cox and the entire Sacred Heart Hospital staff beginning at 4 p.m. (ET/PT) as they heal patients, mend broken hearts and keep viewers in stitches. "Scrubs" joins TV Land's line-up in its regularly scheduled timeslot of 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) from Monday to Friday beginning Tuesday, September 2.

"'Scrubs' is the perfect contemporary acquisition for TV Land as the network continues to grow as the ultimate entertainment network for people in their 40s and 50s," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke, Donald Faison and the entire cast is at their comedic best and their neurotic and side-splitting antics keep viewers laughing all night long. The quick-wit and humor of this series definitely appeals to our audience, and it is precisely the reason why TV Land voted it the winner of the 2001 Future Classic Award."

"Scrubs" follows the dynamic daily routines and bizarre happenings of the Sacred Heart hospital staff. Having premiered in October 2001, the series continues to be a prime time network hit as John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) narrates the everyday personal and professional challenges that he and surgical intern and college buddy Chris Turk (Donald Faison) and the ambitious yet quirky intern Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke) face. Monitoring, mocking, belittling and criticizing their every move are: the sarcastic attending physician Dr. Perry Cox (John McGinley); the Chief of Medicine Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins); the warm-hearted nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes) and J.D.'s adversary -- the conspiring hospital janitor (Neil Flynn).

The schedule for the "Scrubs" Labor Day Marathon is as follows (all times ET/PT):

Monday, September 1
4:00 p.m.
"My First Day"
Dr. J.D. Dorian is one of Sacred Heart's newest interns and on his first day he begins to doubt himself amidst the hospital mayhem, while his best friend Turk is an overly-confident surgical intern. Both J.D. and Turk are initially attracted to fellow intern Elliot, who turns out to be overly-competitive. Dr. Cox, Nurse Carla and Chief of Medicine Dr. Kelso watch the interns closely as they try hilariously to get through their first day.
4:30 p.m.
"Scrubs The Musical"
One of Sacred Heart's newest patients experiences everything in the hospital as in a musical, and Elliot tries to figure out how to break it to J.D. that he can't move in. Elsewhere Carla contemplates her working future.
5:00 p.m.
"My Mentor"
In an attempt to impress Dr. Cox, J.D. tries to convince a patient to stop smoking. Meanwhile Carla picks on Elliot for having a privileged upbringing, but Turk steps in to help smooth things over and ends up scoring a date with Carla.
5:30 p.m.
"My Old Lady"
J.D., Turk and Elliot each have elderly patients -all with different ailments. As Turk treats his hernia patient and Elliot treats her potential lupus patient, J.D. becomes attached to his patient who is in renal failure.
6:00 p.m.
"My Day Off"
J.D. becomes the patient in this episode when he is admitted for appendicitis. As Elliot examines him, J.D. has a first-hand experience with her cold bed-side manner, and later he requests that Turk not perform his operation which causes tension. Elsewhere in the hospital, Dr. Cox does everything he can to impress his mentor, the former Chief of Medicine, who is also a hospital patient.
6:30 p.m.
"My Catalyst"
Dr. Cox is out-shone by Dr. Kevin Casey (played by guest star Michael J. Fox), an obsessive compulsive surgeon with an extensive knowledge of obscure diseases, and J.D. begins to see him as a mentor. Meanwhile, the janitor gets some help with a garbage dilemma.
7:00 p.m.
"My Best Friend's Wedding"
Turk & Carla's wedding day finally arrives, but Turk is delayed by a demanding patient and J.D. does everything he can to mend his friendship with Elliot. This episode guest-stars Scott Foley and Freddy Rodriguez.
7:30 p.m.
"Scrubs The Musical"
(also seen at 4:30 p.m.)
8:00 p.m.
"My First Day"
(also seen at 4 p.m.)
8:30 p.m.
"My Life In Four Cameras"
After meeting a former writer for "Cheers," JD imagines his life as the perfect sitcom with multiple cameras filming "life" in a boring hospital where everything ends well. Back in the "real world" Turk and Carla try to keep the spark alive in their love life, and Dr. Cox has second thoughts as he attempts to fire a friendly cafeteria employee.
9:00 p.m.
"My Way Home"
With a "Wizard of Oz" twist, this episode finds J.D. trying to go home, Carla in search of the courage needed to become a parent, Turk looking for a heart donor and Elliot doubting her "brains" and ability to conduct a question and answer session.
9:30 p.m.
"My Half Acre"
When J.D. meets and falls for Julie (played by Mandy Moore) he always ends up saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and looks to Elliot for some romantic direction. Elsewhere, Turk forms an air-band with the janitor and Carla helps Dr. Cox get in touch with his gentler side to help him bond with his son.
10:00 p.m.
"My Own Personal Hell"
J.D. and the entire staff are fed up with Keith, the perfect intern, whose personal relationship with Elliot ends up becoming common knowledge. Meanwhile Carla resorts to trickery to figure out if Turk is sterile and Dr. Cox develops an over-inflated ego when a magazine tags him as "The Best Doctor in the City."
10:30 p.m.
"My Best Friend's Baby's Baby and My Baby's Baby"
As Carla goes into labor, J.D. and Kim begin to doubt and debate their baby's future and their future as couple. Already in parenthood, Jordon thinks Dr. Cox needs to be more protective of Jack.

I agree - honestly most people are outside doing things on Memorial Day. I know I won't be watching TV on Monday, but you never know who is.

hardly I don't think Scrubs has even made the top 50 the last few years. I get really tired of the networks proclaiming shows to be hits that aren't. ABC was really stupid to pick this show up, NBC knew it wasn't worth keeping.
what a lousy good for nothing show, shows how downhill TVLand has gone

It was popular for about 2 seasons, then ratings slipped and slipped, and they're pretty much off the charts this season. Did the show even manage to make it in the top 100??-LOL

I know Scrubs is rated TV-14 on NBC, ABC, and syndication, but does it retain the TV-14 rating on TV Land?

Enough with the newer shows & reality shows. We are sick of them lol. Ad nauseum. LOL. We got satellite dish a few yrs back so we could watch old 50's-70's shows like on TVLAND. And now they want to give us this newer junk! YUCK! If they go to even more newer shows, I could end up with NOTHING to watch. I am not happy about that. RTN please come to my area. They have some good shows on but no station in my area. I am almost wishing I lived in Chicago so I could get their tv channel that plays the old shows. That one oughta be put on Dish Network. We would watch...

Ah, crap, Scrubs retains the TV-14 rating. This is pretty unorthodox for TV Land to allow programs rated TV-14 on their network.
