‘Samantha Who’ Canceled!
Variety reported that;
[The] show, which had been expected to return, got caught up in this year’s belt-tightening trend at the networks. According to an insider close to the show, decision to scrap “Samantha” came down to numbers. The show couldn’t slash it budget deep enough to make a third-season pickup work, they said. ABC had been mulling a plan to decrease “Samantha’s” budget by changing the way the show is shot – moving to multiple cameras, rather than the single camera now used. Alphabet was looking to slash as much as $500,000 per episode from the show’s budget. But “Samantha” became expendable once ABC picked up such a hefty number of new series for next year – 10 in total. With that large a crop of frosh series, it no longer made sense to bring “Samantha” back or promote it. “Samantha” was initially a strong performer for the Alphabet on Monday nights, but faltered this season after moving to Thursdays.
This is horribly sad news because, the show is ridiculously good!! Not only did Christina Applegate totally rock as Samantha but, the entire cast really made me laugh!
What do you guys think!? You agree with me or do you think my taste in T.V. is terrible?
