TV LAND GETS ITS "SCRUBS" ON AND GOES ON ROUNDS DURING A LABOR DAY MARATHON ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1

New York, NY, August 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 ´┐Żall 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.
