NBC Grounds 'Lax,' Plots 'Scrubs' Move
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC is grounding its freshman drama "LAX" as the network announced over the weekend production on the series will halt after its initial 13 episodes.

The news more or less spells the end of the series, which originally aired on Mondays at 10:00/9:00c before moving to Wednesdays at 8:00/7:00c last month. It's also not clear if the Peacock will air the show's final three installments as various specials are set to fill the Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c hour for the next three weeks: "Tim McGraw: Here and Now" (November 24), an "Apprentice" clip show (December 1) and "A Clay Aiken Christmas" (December 8).

A less than stellar 7.49 million viewers tuned into "LAX" on average according to final Nielsen Media Research numbers available so far this season (9/20/04-11/14/04), ahead of only "American Dreams" (7.41 million), "Hawaii" (7.16 million) and "Last Comic Standing" (5.78 million) on the network.

Meanwhile in other news, NBC is reportedly on track to move its Tuesday comedy "Scrubs" to the 9:00/8:00c half-hour come January according to several industry insiders as well as a hotline recently installed by the cast and crew (read the story). The veteran comedy will then likely lead into one of the Peacock's new midseason comedies ("Committed," "The Men's Room" or "The Office").
