Scrubs is a TV show on ABC entering into its ninth season in Fall of 2009.

It is a half hour comedy about life working in a teaching hospital, Sacred Heart. The main character is Dr. John

J.D. is an attending physician at Sacred Heart, who began working there as an intern fresh out of Medical school in season one. The show also follows J.D.'s on again off again girlfriend Elliot, J.D.'s best friend Turk and his wife Carla, as well as many other doctors in the hospital. The former Chief of medicine Dr. Kelso, the current chief of Medicine Dr. Cox, and the Janitor also play significant roles in the show.
