Old Christine picked up

CBS just might let Christine grow old.

The network has picked up the Julia Louis-Dreyfus sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine for a full second season, according to Variety. Christine, a midseason replacement series last year, initially had a 13-episode order from the network for its second season.

The show, which Dreyfus won an Emmy for in August, has posted good ratings this season. The show pulled in 13.6 million viewers in last Monday's airing, improving on its average of 12.5 million.

Other sitcoms are having varying degrees of success.

CBS is switching time slots for its new series The Class. Starting Monday, The Class will begin at 8:30, following How I Met Your Mother, which will move to 8 p.m. Mother has been averaging higher ratings than Class, so CBS is hoping the lead-in will help boost its grade.

ABC is holding back The Knights of Prosperity from its October 17 premiere to a TBA date. Prosperity stars Donal Logue as the leader of a bumbling group of criminals who plan to rob Mick Jagger.

ABC says it is so confident in the show, it has already ordered a full season of scripts. The net says Prosperity is being held only because it deserves a proper promotional push.

"We feel it's so good, it deserves to have a strong launch," network president Steve McPherson told the Los Angeles Times.

I've never seen this show at all.



It cuts into my WWE RAW, Heroes and Runway time.

I just wish I could watch Old Christine. I loved the first season, but between Heroes and Runaway I can't watch it this time around.

I'm glad that Christine got picked up, it's an amazing comedy show! And I hope that "The Class" will get better ratings now that it switched timeslot with "How I Met Your Mother."
