The show featured an ensemble cast that included Jennifer Esposito, Kevin Dunn, Melissa McCarthy, Tim Russ, Barry Watson, Jean Smart, and Rick Hoffman.

The show follows Samantha, a self-centered and narcissistic woman who, after a hit-and-run accident, wakes up from an eight-day coma with no memory of her past life. She discovers that the person she used to be was not very likable, and now has to navigate her way through her new life as a kind, thoughtful person. With the support of her parents, Regina and Howard, her best friend Andrea, and her ex-boyfriend Todd, Samantha sets out to make amends for her past mistakes and become a better person.

Throughout the series, Samantha tries to piece together her past and understand the relationships she had with people before her accident. She discovers that she was not a nice person and that she had hurt a lot of people in her previous life. As she tries to make amends, she also has to deal with people who still see her as the old Samantha, including Todd's new girlfriend, Dena, and Samantha's former assistant and frenemy, Cheryl.

The show features a lot of humor, with Samantha's new personality and her interactions with the people from her past providing plenty of comedic opportunities. The characters are well-developed, and each one has their own story arc throughout the series. In addition to Samantha's journey of self-discovery, the show also explores the lives of the people around her, including her parents' struggles with their own marriage, Andrea's complicated love life, and Todd's attempts to move on from Samantha.

In terms of acting, Christina Applegate delivers a standout performance as Samantha, displaying her comedic skills but also adding depth and vulnerability to the character. The rest of the ensemble cast is also excellent, with Jean Smart as Samantha's mother Regina and Melissa McCarthy as Samantha's co-worker Dena both providing memorable performances.

Overall, Samantha Who? is an entertaining and heartfelt comedy series that explores the idea of second chances and personal growth. The show features a strong cast, great writing, and plenty of laughs, making it a must-watch for fans of sitcoms.
