To make room for the return of the live Dancing With the Stars Results Show in the Tuesday 9 p.m. hour (on March 17), current occupant Scrubs will relocate into the Wednesday 8 p.m. anchor spot on March 18.
Leading out of Scrubs at 8:30 p.m. will be Better Off Ted, the comical tale of a successful man (Jay Harrington) who runs the research and development department at a morally questionable firm.
ABC, in addition, will give Ugly Betty a rest and open Thursday effective on March 26 with a new sitcom called In the Motherhood leading into sophomore Samantha Who? In the Motherhood features Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Jessica St. Clair as three mothers trying to cope in today’s modern world.
Ugly Betty is expected to return later in the spring. There is no word, meanwhile, what will air in Samantha Who?’s former Monday 9:30 p.m. time period.
