Something So Right starred Mel Harris as Carly Davis, a twice-divorced party planner who had married Jack Farrell (Jere Burns), a divorced English teacher. They had three children, one from each of their former marriages.

This program premiered on NBC in the fall of 1996, but despite airing between the Top 30 hit Mad About You and the Top 20 hit Frasier, it faltered in the ratings and was canceled the following spring. It was picked up as a midseason replacement on ABC the next year, running until July.
