NBC moves 'Barker' off Thursdays


NBC is cutting short the run of new comedy "Andy Barker, P.I." on Thursday. The network had originally scheduled five episodes of the detective comedy starring Andy Richter to air as part of its Thursday comedy block. The fifth episode, originally slated for Thursday will now air Saturday at 8 p.m., paired with the last half-hour of "Barker's" six-episode order. This week, NBC will air an original segment of "Scrubs" in the Thursday 9:30 p.m. berth vacated by "Barker."
