Samanatha Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?

Samanatha Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?

Christina Applegate (Married with Children) and Barry Watson (7th Heaven) continue to shoot scenes for their upcoming ABC comedy Samantha Who?.

Applegate, who also produces, plays 30-year-old psychiatrist Samantha, who, after becoming the victim of a hit-and-run, develops amnesia and has to rediscover her life, her relationships and herself. Watson plays Todd, Jean Smart plays Regina Newly, Jennifer Esposito plays Andrea, Kevin Dunn plays Howard Newly, Melissa McCarthy plays Dena and Tim Russ plays Frank.

Tidbit: Originally, the show was named Sam I Am until ABC renamed it due to conflicts with Dr. Seuss.

Check out the other Samantha Who? promos below! The show premieres on Monday, October 15 @ 9:30PM ET/PT on ABC!

    applegate used to look cute

  • Lillianne

    Bite me – bite all of us. What you mean to say is she doesn’t look 15 years old anymore. She’s maturing beautifully. I can’t wait to see her.


    That’s an interesting group.

  • marymi

    hey jared, have you forgot that barry watson was also in an ABC show once before called “WHAT ABOUT BRIAN?” “7th heaven” wasn’t the only show he was in. so get your facts together jared!!

  • Patmycrotch

    Does that mean that “What about Brian” is not coming back?? Awww I like that show.

  • magnus

    Looks like a bag of sh*t.

    30 year old shrink eh? Did she finish her undergrad at 15 then?



    She looks like crap too btw. You’re right #2 she doesn’t look 15 anymore. Which sucks. Because whether your fat old as$ likes it or not youth is sexualized. That spans every culture for a reason.

    Canceled in 3 days.

    Glad I’m not the only one who noticed the “What About Brian” faux pas. And yes, it is coming back. yay!

  • Pikes

    Wow, Nice five/ten head Barry. Where did your hair go?

  • Cagey

    I hate to tell you toobadsooosad, but “What About Brian” is NOT coming back. Low ratings forced ABC to pull the plug and Barry Watson was lucky enough to land the pilot for “Sam I Am” in time. Then lucky again when ABC decided to pick it up. I’ve watched the previews and read a little bit about it…..I think “Samantha Who” looks like it might be funny. Good mother/daughter chemistry between Applegate and Jean Smart. We’ll have to wait and see, come October. Frankly, I think we need more funny, female-centric sitcoms on TV today!

    She’s supposed to portray a 30 year old..? She’s already 36, and looks it. I give this stupid storyline three episodes.
