Samantha Who? information

Though Up All Night’s ratings have been pretty terrible this season, NBC isn’t throwing in the towel just yet. They’ve ordered three more episodes, bringing the season total to 16 installments.

In an unusual move, the peacock network is also transforming the single-camera comedy into a more traditional multi-camera sitcom. The change will take place after the 11th episode which should air in December.

Up All Night will then go on hiatus while the sets are reworked to accommodate the multi-camera set-up and a live audience. Production will resume in February on the five remaining episodes and they’ll start rolling out in April.

Interestingly, many of them are nominated for the show's last episode. Though the cast and crews of these shows may attend the award ceremony on September 12th, they sadly won't be working with each other the next morning. Here are the lucky and yet not-so-lucky nominees...

2008 – 2009 Cancelled Shows: ABC Renews 12 TV Series, What About the Rest?

April 24, 2009
According to Jim, Cupid, Samantha Who?The ABC network has announced renewals for a dozen of their current series. It looks like America's Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Brothers & Sisters, Dancing With The Stars, Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, Private Practice, Supernanny, Ugly Betty, and Wife Swap will all be back next season. None come as a big surprise since ABC is still doing pretty well enough in the ratings. The weakest among the renewed series are Wife Swap and Supernanny but they're relegated to Friday nights. Expectations are lower on that night and the shows are cheaper. What about the rest of their shows -- According To Jim, Better Off Ted, Boston Legal, Castle, Cupid, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone, Homeland Security USA, In The Motherhood, Life On Mars, Opportunity Knocks, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who?, Scrubs, Surviving Suburbia, True Beauty and The Unusuals? Where do they stand?

Ugly Betty Returning Early; Bad News for Samantha Who? and In the Motherhood

April 21, 2009
ABC has quietly announced that Ugly Betty is coming back one week earlier than expected on Thursday, April 30th. That's sure to make Betty fans happy but, for those who enjoy Samantha Who? and In The Motherhood, it's not a good sign. The numbers for Ugly Betty aren't what they once were for sure. The first season averaged 11.3 million viewers and the second fell to 9.4 million. The current season has fallen even further to an average of 8.48 million. Still, the show remains healthy in the 18-49 demographic numbers, where it really counts. The show is also co-produced by ABC's in-house studio. This gives the network all more incentive to renew the show so that it will have enough episodes for syndication, where the big money is. While ABC hasn't officially announced a fourth season, Stephen McPherson, ABC's Entertainment Group President, confirmed last month that Betty would be renewed. The same can't be said for Samantha Who? and In the Motherhood. Both have been struggling in their Thursday night timeslots. Motherhood got off to a very slow start. Because of President Obama's speech that week, powerhouse American Idol was preempted and the Idol results show was pushed to Thursday, opposite the Motherhood debut. ABC could've delayed the sitcom another week to ensure that it got a chance to be sampled but it didn't. Motherhood premiered to 6.7 million viewers and a 2.2/6 rating/share in the 18-49 demographic. During the sitcom's four episode run, it hit a low of 4.51 million viewers with a 1.3/4 in the demo.
