ABC Adds to ‘Samantha’ Order

Oct 31, 2008  •  Post A Comment

ABC is giving a vote of confidence to second-year comedy “Samantha Who”?
The network has ordered seven additional episodes of the Christina Applegate series, bringing to 20 the total number of episodes it plans to produce. While full-season orders usually are 22 episodes, ABC said that with its inventory of other sitcoms—including “Scrubs,” “According to Jim” and four midseason projects—it didn’t need as many “Samantha” episodes.
“Samantha” has been doing decent though not spectacular numbers as part of ABC’s Monday night lineup. This week, it averaged a 3.0/11 among adults 18-49, up 11% from the week before.
