Syntax-wise, if I had to choose between programming in PHP and programming in JS, I'd choose JS any day - if only because its implementation of various language features such as variable declaration, scoping, and closures is far better. JS is a pretty decent scripting language, but there are plenty of better ones - Python comes to mind - and I prefer a static-by-default language that allows for dynamic programming and has highly flexible constructs (C#).
 
The fact that libraries like jQuery and d3 can be written in JS without too much hackery shows that it has plenty of mojo left in it. But I don't think I'd ever deliberately choose to write serious server-side code in it if I had all my options available, and it'd be cool if there were more client-side options available as well in the browser (companies like Google are working towards that).
