Something So Right.jpg

Something So Right is an NBC\ABC network sitcom created by Judd Pillot & John Peaslee.

The show originally aired on NBC on September 17, 1996, but despite airing between other NBC series such as "Frasier" and "Mad About You," the ratings began to fall and it was cancelled on May 6, 1997.

"Something So Right" was later picked up by ABC as a mid-season replacement the following year, airing from March 3 to July 7, 1998.


"Something So Right" was about the trials and tribulations that come in a modern day household of three kids, a mom and a dad, an ex-wife and two ex-husbands. It all started as just another parent-teacher conference when Carly Davis (Mel Harris) met her son's teacher, Jack Farrell (Jere Burns). However, their chemistry was undeniable and Carly and Jack fell in love.

With a reaffirmed belief in love and marriage, the twice-divorced Carly married the divorced Jack and they lived happily ever after... with just a little effort.

Carly is the mother of two children, 15-year-old Will (from her first marriage to semi-employed musician Dante Pacino) and 12-year-old Sarah (from her second marriage to intense businessman Sheldon Kramer). Now on her third marriage, Carly has not only gained a husband, but also a 16-year-old stepdaughter Nicole, and Jack's ex-wife, the neurotic actress Stephanie Farrell
