Today was a big day for shows on the bubble as Scrubs was granted a ninth season by ABC and Joss Whedon’s told to be dead series Dollhouse was granted a second season by FOX. Both shows will be cutting costs in order to survive.

In the new season of Scrubs, Zack Braff and Sarah Chalke will both be returning for six episodes, while Donald Faison, John C. McGinley and Neil Flynn will all return as regulars, reports THR. Apparently, the show will get some retooling with Braff and Chalke’s episodes helping the transition.  If all goes well, we can likely expect a version of Scrubs to continue long into the future.

Dollhouse was granted a 13 episode second season, regardless of low ratings. The show really hit a good stride starting with its 5th episode and continued to get better all the way through its awesome season finale “Omega”. I can’t wait to see where Whedon takes the series next year.

Also just renewed: Better Off Ted and Castle (a Nathan Fillion show getting a second season? Now that is shocking!)

TV Flipped Column with PJ Flip

There were a lot of great TV Moments last week, these are my favorites. On How I Met Your Mother, Ted runs into Stella. Is she the “Mother”? Maybe, but I don’t think so. On The Big Bang Theory, Penny called out Leonard’s name while making out with Stuart. Over on Castle, Castle was asked why he doesn’t watch detective shows on TV rather than following Becket around. He said something like all they do is play with their sunglasses. Which is making fun of time slot rival CSI Miami‘s character Horatio Cane. Dollhouse had a bunch of great lines like when Alpha holds a gun towards Caroline/Echo’s harddrive with her original imprint and he says ‘I’ll blow your brains out’. The best line was when Topher and Ballard are talking about the doll’s souls and Topher says something along the lines of ‘we keep them in a jar with our fireflies’.

On SNL, Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg reprise their dick-in-a-box roles with Motherlover.

On Bones, Booth talked to Baby Stewie at the sperm bank.

And finally, on David Letterman, Leonard Nimoy presented the “Top Ten Lines Never Before Said in a ‘Star Trek‘ Film.”

What will be this weeks favorite moments? Will it be Prison Break’s two hour finale? Who will Michael choose, Sara or Lincoln? Or Leonard Nimoy as William Bell on Fringe or No Doubt on Gossip Girl or maybe Motley Crue and Zack on Bones or the Apocalypse on Supernatural or Doomsday battling Clark on Smallville?

What were your favorite TV moments last week?

TV Flipped Column with PJ Flip

Welcome to my all-new column, where I look at the cool little aspects of the latest TV episodes and news.

Did you catch the inside joke on Monday nights episode of Castle?

Nathan FillionOkay, so Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) is talking to his daughter and mother about Nannies.  Castle mentions that his nanny would sit and watch daytime soap operas.  He then revealed that he got the idea for his first book from watching an episode of One Life to Live.  In the mid 90s, Nathan Fillion portrayed Joey Buchanan One Life to Live.  This would be about the same time that Castle got his idea for his books.  Most of these little inside jokes the casual watcher won’t even realize, but they are funny when you do know them.

Speaking of Nannies and inside jokes on shows, there is also inside advertising.  On tonight’s episode of One Tree Hill, Nanny Deb is asking Jaime what he wants to watch and he replies Gossip Girl, cause it makes him feel bad.  Gossip Girl airs right before One Tree Hill on the CW.

And while we are on the subject of Gossip Girl, did you hear who will be portraying a teenage Lily van der Woodsen on the Gossip Girl prequel?  None other than Brittany Snow. Does anyone else think it’s weird that she was once in love with her daughter Serena’s ex boyfriend Dan Humphrey (they got down in John Tucker Must Die)?

Nathan Fillion makes another go at TV with ABC’s light hearted crime drama, Castle. The series focuses on Rick Castle (Fillion), a successful crime and horror novelist who is in a rut after he kills off the main character of his novels. He suddenly gets a reserge of ideas and energy after he is contacted by Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and is recruited onto the NYPD as a consultant to help catch a copy-cat killer who is murdering people based on scenes from Castle’s novel.

The series is more Moonlighting than Law and Order, with Castle playing by his own rules and Beckett being a by the book detective. Continue reading to watch a preview for the new show. Just a heads up, but the extended clip has a lot of spoilers for the first episode.
