Christina Applegate: Save 'Samantha Who?'!

Christina Applegate’s has joined Twitter-verse and has started up a petition to save her ABC series, Samantha, Who?.

Earlier this week, it was announced that ABC canceled Christina’s comedy due to economic reasons. The network was reportedly looking to cut $500,000 per episode. According to THR, to do that, the series’ producers were looking to add a third camera to its shoots, keeping the single-camera look but trimming its production schedule.

I was so surprised, too.

# 2

I’ve never seen an episode of Samantha Who, but my girlfriend’s Mother is absolutely in love with it.

Wonder what that means…

# 3

I’m glad to hear her health is better and she can return to the show. Maybe it can be picked up by another network like ABC family.

# 4

Why don’t they trim some of those crappy over paid writers?

# 5

I love Sam! The show is really fun and gives you this happy joyfull feeling. I really, really hope it’s going to get picked up by some other network.

Why was there no attention given to the sitcom,”The Game” on JJ? That was a GREAT sitcom in my opinion and it got cancelled. And yes there was a petition, but no one heard about it on JJ. So let this “Samantha Who?” crap go down the tubes aswell.

NEXT!

the episode holds better! i think the use of third camera used by them will make the episode much better!

This is really shocking. I thought the show was doing really well!

I don’t understand why these networks don’t understand that shows need to be given a chance. Some of the best shows weren’t loved until a few years after they began. And that was when the shows actually stayed on the same network, same time and same day! Why do all of these networks feel the need to compete on the same night at the same time. Enough already. They are ruining television. No wonder people tivo and find shows online!

Samantha Who? is a brilliant show. As I watch the new Fall shows hit ABC, I’ve got to wonder who the hell makes such stupid decisions.

How unfair to take a show and move it all around the week, and then expect the viewership to remain strong.

When do the folks at the networks stop looking at the numbers and start looking at the quality of their programs?

Sadly, a wonderful show is gone. ABC, you can take away my show but you will you use my patronage.
