While Christina Applegate has had a rough year to say the least, the Samantha Who? star is keeping her chin up and looking to the future.

 

Christina underwent a double mastectomy months ago, and now there’s buzz that Samantha might get canceled.

 

“All I hear is just, ‘Be positive,’ she tells AOLTV. "Tough times — with the economy, even networks have suffered immensely, so you just never know what’s gonna happen."

 

One big factor is her show’s head-to-head battle with American Idol, which airs at the same time.

 

“Hopefully people won’t watch American Idol and they’ll watch us instead," she says with a laugh. "That’s only like 50 million viewers."

 

The beloved star admits she’s had her share of tough times as she battled breast cancer, but she still finds the bright side of it all.

 

“This was obviously an incredibly difficult year, not just because of that, but because I lost a good friend in the middle of it, and my cousin actually passed away in October from ovarian cancer," she reveals. "So kind of a big year, and you can’t help but change a little bit. But you know, on one hand there’s all of that, and on the other hand I’ve fallen very much in love, so that’s another thing that’s happened. So there’s a good end to every story."
