LA denizens will have a couple Yule Log options this Xmas

LA denizens will have a couple Yule Log options this Xmas
Looks like ABC will be doubling up on broadcasting episodes of "Scrubs" and "Better Off Ted" in January which means that they will run out of episodes by the end of the month, implying that these shows will not be renewed. A shame since we think "Better Off Ted" is ABC's other comedy standout next to "Modern Family". We haven't been following the new "Scrubs", what do you think about it as well as the prospect of these shows disappearing?
Ye Olde Xmas Day Yule Log Programming: KCAL will air its log from 6-10am. On KTLA, the fireplace will be on from 4:30-10am. The good thing with either option is that you don't have to worry about the eggnog fumes getting too close to the TV screen.
