DENISE RICHARDS: IT'S COMPLICATED/LIVING LOHAN (E!) - The cable channel has quietly confirmed the time periods for both of its much-ballyhooed series. "Denise" and "Lohan" will both launch on Monday, May 26 with the former at 10:00/9:00c and the latter at 10:30/9:30c. The series will then shift to Sundays going forward.


REAPER (The CW) - The netlet is moving forward with a second season of the freshman drama, industry sources confirmed this afternoon. Said pickup, for 13 episodes, is understood to be targeted for midseason following the conclusion of "Smallville's" run. About 2.56 million viewers on average tune into the series each week, on par with fellow CW dramas "Gossip Girl" (2.35 million) and "Supernatural" (2.69 million). Look for the netlet's complete 2008-09 schedule announcement tomorrow.


SCRUBS (NBC) - Zach Braff has confirmed via his MySpace page the worst kept secret in Hollywood - "Scrubs" will return for an eighth season on ABC. The bulletin reads: "Dear friends, Many of you have been understandably confused by the Fairy Tale episode of Scrubs serving as the series finale. It was not. I was not allowed to say it until today, but Scrubs will be moving to ABC for its final season. We are currently filming the 8th and final season. The true finale of the show will air on ABC in the fall. NBC merely promoted the Fairy Tale episode as the finale, as it was the last episode they owned. Also, several of you were very confused by the fact that Dr. Kelso and Laverne were still working at the hospital in the Fairy Tale episode. Because of the writer's strike, the last remaining episodes for NBC were aired out of order. This is why Dr. Kelso was still chief of medicine. That was not Laverne however, for those of you who have been following closely; it was a new nurse "Shirley" who no one thinks looks anything like Laverne except for JD. Hope this clears some things up. peace and love, zb." The Alphabet will detail its 2008-09 lineup tomorrow.
