Poppy Montgomery will never forget when Unforgettable was un-canceled.

"I got the call and I was like, 'Where's Ashton Kutcher? This is Punk'd!'" she tells TVGuide.com. "I was like, 'This is not real, c'mon, people!' It was really fast. I really thought it was a practical joke. I trust that the networks and studio know what they're doing and what they need and want. If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be, and I really thought it wasn't last year. So many shows get canceled. It's so rare to bring a show back."
