While its peers in the family sitcom arena offered a limitless supply of loving families, happy homes, and poignant life lessons, Married With Children slapped America in the face with middle-class mediocrity and resentment. And television hasn't been the same since.
Say adieu to Samantha Who?
ABC isn't outlining its fall schedule until tomorrow, but it looks like one show can already be crossed off the list. ABC has decided not to renew the half-hour comedy Samantha Who?, reports Variety.
Showrunners across the country are biting their nails right about now, waiting to see if they will have a job next season or if their shows--their babies--will get cancelled. Well ABC made the first announcements today, revealing which of its lineup got an early renewal.
To those of you out there preparing your In the Motherhood finale parties: stop. You're a week late. ABC has decided to pull both In the Motherhood and Samantha Who? from its schedule, which could signal that both shows are being shut down for the rest of the season.
It's been a while since we last saw Christina Applegate on Samantha Who?--almost four months--so you'll have to excuse her for being a little spotty when trying to remember where the show left off. Either that, or she's taken a bit of her amnesiac character with her.
It's time to get out your red pen and mark your calendars, because ABC has announced the finale dates of its lineup, including the season finales of Lost and Grey's Anatomy, and possibly the series finales of Scrubs and… According to Jim.
Yesterday, ABC reshuffled its schedule to move its top comedy Samantha Who? and new comedy In the Motherhood to Thursdays at 8 p.m. starting in late March. Great news for those shows, but bad news for the previous tenant of the time slot: Ugly Betty.
NBC's Thursday night comedy block is going to have some competition come March. ABC today announced a few scheduling moves, and fans of the network's amnesiac-in-distress comedy better not forget--Samantha Who? is moving.
Say what you will about awards-show season (seriously, comment below!), but each awards ceremony is hard to ignore once the red carpet is rolled out. Tonight saw Hollywood welcome the red carpet of the Golden Globes, the Oscars' jealous little brother. The night is especially important for film (Oscar nominees are announced later this week, and a Globes win could sway Academy voters), but television also has a lot at stake with this ceremony the only major TV awards show until the late-summer Emmys.
On CBS tonight, one of the only award shows which blame can only be put on the viewers aired. I'm talking of course about the People's Choice Awards, and this year's edition may be the most important for the ceremony--it turned 35 years old tonight. Not only is it a birthday, it also is rebounding from last year's writers strike (which left then host Queen Latifah to fend for herself) and is still building upon its change in voting system--in 2005 it went online to let the "people" choose its winners.
The Screen Actors Guild took time out of its strike talk to release this year's nominees for its annual SAG Awards, and one would be hard pressed to find a shocker among the bunch. The usual names are all there, but we'll list them off for you anyway.
It's shiny trophy time in Hollywood, but before the bald-headed first-place prizes get handed out on February 22, the Golden Globes--also known as "The Oscars' precursor"--have to be doled out. The nominees are in, and the field features familiar faces and some surprising entries.
The people have spoken, and they love House, Heroes, and American Idol. The 35th Annual People's Choice Awards has revealed its lengthy list of nominees, and it's full of small-screen favorites.
ABC hasn't forgotten about one of its top comedies, ordering seven more episodes of the fairly successful Samantha Who?. Normally, a network would make a "back nine" pickup, meaning that nine episodes would be added to a show's season for a total of 22 episodes.
