ABC Sitcom Gets New Name Because of Dr. Seuss

Recently, I was over on ABC's fall preview site, and I noticed that the logo for the network's new Christina Applegate comedy had changed:

"How clever!" I thought. "The show's about amnesia, so they're acting like they forgot its name!"

Not so. As it turns out, ABC no longer had a name for the series because the estate of Dr. Seuss was angry about the original title. See, "Sam I Am" drew on the first lines of Green Eggs and Ham, and apparently the Seuss folks didn't appreciate the allusion (or, as Variety speculated, they wanted too much money for its use).

So ABC is changing the title to "Samantha Be Good" — which I suppose should be lawsuit-free unless Samantha Bee decides to get involved.
