LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- NBC's "Scrubs" has replaced HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" among the Producers Guild of America's best TV comedy nominees, it was announced Thursday.
The PGA last week nominated "Curb Your Enthusiasm" for best comedy, then found out its most recent season that began Sept. 25 was outside of the eligibility period, which runs Sept. 1, 2004, to Aug. 31, 2005, Daily Variety reported.
The scrubbing of "Curb" bumped up the sixth highest vote-getter by PGA members, which just happened to be "Scrubs," Variety said.
"Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence said he learned of the nomination via a form letter seeking clips for the Jan. 22 ceremony.
"We thought it was a mistake," Lawrence told Variety. "It was very weird."
