Samantha Who? is being taken off the air after two seasons.
May 20, 2009
ABC has left the show off of its 2009 fall schedule, deciding not to renew the half-hour comedy.
Speculation pointed to it being a candidate for renewal, but Samantha Who? has fallen casualty to the failing economy. The network reportedly asked for ways to trim the show's budget by as much as half-a-million dollars per episode, but a resolution could not be found.
The show got off to a good start with impressive numbers in its first season but lost steam in its second, despite star Christina Applegate being nominated for multiple awards.
