What I'm Watching: Samantha Who? (Season Premiere)

Samantha Who: Season 2, Episode 1 "So I Think I Can Dance" (C+)

I do like this show and its stars, but this season premiere feels rather contrived. Sam thinks she knows how to dance, but it's evident that she won't be able to relearn it in time. I'm always disappointed when half-hour comedies feel rather empty (not like "The Office" or "30 Rock"), and follow only one real major plotline. I want to see more of Andrea and her meddling/attempted but failed flirtation with Todd, and Dena's joy at getting to do tech once a year. This show still has some potential, but I'd like to see the ensemble used to more effect. Let Sam take a backseat and highlight her friends and family.
