Recently and repeatedly bumped by bloated editions of The Bachelor, the amnesiac Samantha Who? will say farewell to her familiar Monday confines and pair with In the Motherhood to form a new Thursday comedy block for ABC.
Starting March 26, Samantha will air Thursdays at 8, where it will lead into In the Motherhood, a new comedy starring Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) and Jessica St. Clair. Ugly Betty will reclaim that Thursday time slot and resume its season once Sam and the moms have exhausted their runs.
ABC has also set a premiere date for Better Off Ted: Wednesday, March 18. Fronted by Jay Harrington (Wyatt on Private Practice) and Portia De Rossi and concerning the R&D department of a morally questionable conglomerate, that new comedy will lead out of Scrubs.
