Robert and I both liked Samantha Who?’s chances, but again, as has become a theme in the 2009-10 upfront schedule news, cost was king. This time the high cost seems to have killed the show. I thought the show’s history would keep it alive over shows like Better Off Ted. Apparently not.
ABC has canceled the Christina Applegate starrer ”Samantha Who.”
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.
