Scrubs 8 p.m., Channel 5

ABC came to the rescue when NBC gave up on "Scrubs." But then ABC went on to completely mishandle the series. It has been like watching a class in how to bury a sitcom, as the network aired a few back-to-back new episodes and then weeks and weeks of reruns. Tonight, ABC moves the show, starring Zach Braff (above), from Tuesdays to Wednesdays, where new episodes will provide a lead-in for the sitcom "Better Off Ted."

Lost 9 p.m., Channel 5

This is becoming the season of Sawyer (Josh Holloway, above), as our hunky con man begins to reveal some leadership qualities. Tonight, he helps his friends by telling a few more lies to the Dharma people. I wish they hadn't cast Reiko Aylesworth as Amy - I can't see her without thinking of Michelle Dessler on "24." By the way, check out the short "Lost Untangled" recaps at Like many of the video recaps online, they are hysterical.
