The New Adventures of Old Christine
CBS-Wednesday/8 pm Eastern Time
Christine is a divorced Mom who lives with her son Ritchie and her brother Matthew. Christine’s ex-husband Richard who is Ritchie’s father is around quite a bit in Christine’s life but Richard has a girlfriend also named Christine. Hence the reason the divorced Christine is called “Old Christine”.
This sitcom family is so funny to me because of all the absurd dynamics between the characters. Old Christine can be self-absorbed and obsessive at times, she has bad luck with relationships and even married her best friend Barb when Barb was possibly going to be deported. Each character seems to have their personal issues
The 4th season premiered in September and the TV show will consist of 22 episodes which will be airing through the Spring.
CBS-Wednesday/8:30 pm Eastern Time
Gary and his ex-wife, Allison are divorced for 3 months and although Gary bought a place of his own after the divorce, Allison is regularly in the picture due to their two teenage children. Gary and Allison seem to always be at each other but at the end of it all, they always make up and there is the feeling that the two still care very much about each other. The antics that go on with each other and the children are very funny. In November, 22 episodes were picked up by CBS.
Some of the television family comedies will be premiering this TV season while others will be airing new episodes. Regardless, the shows will be sure to bring laughs to viewers of all ages.
