Christina Applegate’s “Samantha Who?” Cancelled


ABC has pulled the plug on Samantha Who?

The half-hour comedy starring actress Christina Applegate won’t be back next season, according to Variety. The trade magazine claims ABC canned the show due to economic reasons. The network was reportedly looking to cut $500,000 per episode and had considered switching from a single camera format to using multiple cameras, says a spy.

Christina — who successfully battled cancer while working on the sitcom — was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for her role as Samantha in 2008.
