[via press release from ABC]

ABC ANNOUNCES THE SEASON PREMIERES OF "SCRUBS" AND "BETTER OFF TED"

Back-to-Back Episodes of "Scrubs" Air Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 9:00 and 9:30 p.m., ET; "Better Off Ted" Premieres Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 9:30 p.m.

The hit half-hour comedy series "Scrubs" will return to ABC this December for its ninth season. This irreverent and offbeat comedy will debut TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, with back-to-back episodes from 9:00-9:30 and 9:30-10:00 p.m., ET. On TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8, the critically acclaimed comedy "Better Off Ted" will begin its sophomore season at 9:30 p.m., ET, following an original episode of "Scrubs."

"Scrubs" focuses on the unique point of view of Dr. John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff). Having left the hospital temporarily for a job at another hospital, he returns to Sacred Heart to teach med school. Together with Drs. Turk (Donald Faison), Cox (John C. McGinley), Kelso (Ken Jenkins) and intern Denise (Eliza Coupe), he is now professor to a class of brand new medical students Lucy (Kerry Bishe), Drew (Michael Mosley) and Cole (Dave Franco) while continuing his romance with the beautiful but socially awkward Dr. Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke).

At 9:00 p.m., in an episode entitled, "Our First Day of School," J.D., Turk, Drs. Cox and Kelso and Intern Denise return to Sacred Heart to teach med school while new med students Lucy, Drew, Cole and Maya are put through the ringer on their first day of school. At 9:30 p.m., in "Our Drunk Friend," Lucy learns a hard lesson about what it takes to be a doctor. Meanwhile J.D. and Turk spot a potential love connection between Denise and the new med student Drew, as they play matchmakers with a little bit of help from Dr. Kelso.

"Scrubs" stars Zach Braff as J.D., Sarah Chalke as Elliot Reid, Donald Faison as Chris Turk, John C. McGinley as Dr. Perry Cox, Ken Jenkins as Dr. Bob Kelso and Eliza Coupe as Denise. Joining the cast are Kerry Bishe as Lucy, Michael Mosley as Drew and Dave Franco as Cole. "Scrubs" is produced by ABC Studios. Bill Lawrence ("Spin City") is the executive producer and creator.

"Better Off Ted" is a satirical office comedy about successful good guy, Ted Crisp, who runs research and development at Veridian Dynamics, a company with a morally questionable approach to its employees. Whether it's standing by a memo with a typo that encourages employees to now (as opposed to not) use offensive language with each other, to championing interoffice dating based on DNA matching to save money on health care, Veridian is a company that puts its bottom line first and employees last. Ted's a single dad to a seven year old girl, and he loves his job, but he's starting to take a closer look at the company's extremely dubious practices.

"Better Off Ted" stars Jay Harrington as Ted, Portia de Rossi as Veronica, Andrea Anders as Linda, Jonathan Slavin as Phil, Malcolm Barrett as Lem and Isabella Acres as Rose. The series is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television. Victor Fresco ("My Name Is Earl," "Andy Richter Controls the Universe") is executive producer and creator of the series.
