Fans held onto hope, but “Samantha Who?” joined the graveyard of ABC’s beloved canceled shows that include and “Pushing Daisies” “Eli Stone.”
It’s a competitive business to be sure, but giving “Sam” the boot while renewing
“Scrubs” and “Better Off Ted” — both of which aren’t on the fall schedule but are being held (for a possible midseason fill in?) — seems like a head scratcher.
The show could easily have been paired with ABC’s new comedy
“Cougar Town,” starring Courteney Cox.
And while ABC gives highly imaginative shows a shot — “Pushing Daisies,”
“Life on Mars,” “Eli Stone” — it’s rare that the network sticks with them. There are some exceptions though, such as “Lost.”
