ABC Books Return of ‘Scrubs,’ ‘Better Off Ted’

Comedies will air Tuesday nights starting in December.

ABC has locked in return dates for comedies "Scrubs" and "Better Off Ted."

"Scrubs" will begin its new season Tuesday, Dec. 1, with back-to-back episodes from 9-10 p.m. It fills the gap left by "Dancing With the Stars," which ends its cycle in November.

On Dec. 8, "Scrubs" will settle into its regular 9 p.m. timeslot, with the critical fave "Better Off Ted" following at 9:30 p.m.
