How about listing every show that was on before the strike & it's status - whether it will be back this year or if ever. There were a lot more shows on then you have listed

Saw the new episode of "Numbers" last week. The writers should have stayed on strike or somewhere. It was a replay of Patty Hearst and her kidnapping. Shame--Numbers is very good but this "new episode" stunk.

-Unfortunatley Scrubs, it's remaning episodes and series finale are all in limbo due to a dispute between NBC & ABC Studios:

February 6, 2008 - With the writers strike possibly nearing an end (you can read about the status of that here.) the news will start rolling in about the immediate future of your favorite shows. There are few shows affected by the strike that have created as passionate a response as Scrubs. After all, this is the series' final season and its devoted fans reacted with horror to the news that they may never see a series finale.

We first reported the possibility of Scrubs ending without a finale when we talked to series creator Bill Lawrence on the picket line, back when the strike began. Later, with the strike in progress, Lawrence sounded a more optimistic note during a Paley Center event bidding farewell to Scrubs. Lawrence was not the only showrunner in the dark on the future of his own show, but he was the only one who was attempting to wrap-up a successful and beloved seven year run on a (modest) hit comedy. So what now? If the strike does indeed end in a matter of weeks instead of months, it's possible for writers to get back to work and for shows to get back into production. According to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello, Lawrence had this to say about the future of Scrubs:

The worst-case scenario is that ABC Studios [who produce the show] lets me make the last four episodes as a DVD. And I say it's the 'worst-case scenario' because I'm going to try as hard as I can to get NBC's support in finishing the show up on TV. I just don't have any definitive answer because I haven't been talking to them… The second we're told that we can go back to work, I'm going to give [NBC's] Ben Silverman a call and say, Scrubs has been on NBC for seven years, and it would really be a bummer if I didn't get to end it there.' And I'm hoping I'll get a positive response. I would be surprised if NBC didn't want to figure out a way to end the series on their network."

However, as Ausiello points out (and something that is hard to contend with), Silverman has a mixed track record on this front. After all, he's not exactly showing love for Friday Night Lights of late. Nonetheless, it does seem that Scrubs fans will get closure in the form of a final handful of episodes – whether it's sooner or later, or on TV or DVD – has yet to be determined. But I'm sure most fans will agree that something is a whole lot better than nothing. Or he could always take a page from Joss Whedon's book and make a Scrubs movie…
