    Just stumbled into this in the store (US). Go do a search for "Friends", "My Name Is Earl", or "Scrubs".

    Oh look at that... NBC shows seems to be available, but the TV Shows homepage doesn't have an NBC section yet.

    I also noticed that when I did a search for "30 Rock" and "Seinfeld", thought he results page didn't show them as available, when I clicked "Show all results", I just got a blank page. looks to me like some database updating is going on.


    If I had to guess, I'd guess Apple would want to announce the return of NBC on top of the release of Take 2.

    I guess you failed to notice that Friends was produced and distributed by Warner Bros or that Scrubs is produced and distributed by ABC Studios (Disney)?

    Friends, Scrubs and countless other TV Shows that "aired" on NBC are still on the iTunes Store. NBC Universal doesn't own the rights to those shows.

    NBC/Universal properties were the only TV Shows ever removed (House which airs on Fox, Heroes, etc).

    I did notice that, but I searched for Scrubs the other day and I'm pretty sure it wasn't available then.

    NBC doesn't own the rights to them.

    Scrubs Owned and Distributed by ABC Networks (Disney)
    Friends Owned and Distributed by Warner Brothers.

    And other shows that have aired with NBC are Owned by other STUDIOS not Networks
