note: this is separate from the regular Tuesday airings of Scrubs.

When ABC replaced the episode of Scrubs scheduled for this coming Wednesday at 8pm with a repeat episode of Modern Family, I chalked it up to shenanigans resulting from the State of the Union address that night.

But now ABC is bouncing a new episode of Scrubs scheduled for Wednesday February 3 and again replacing it with a repeat of Modern Family.
