Something So Right is an American television situation comedy which ran on two different networks during its time on the air, and in reruns on the USA Network for a number of years after its cancellation. 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, found a rather small audience there and was canceled the following spring, only to be picked up as a midseason replacement on ABC the next year, running until July.
