The New Adventures of Old Christine has a strong debut

Bob Patterson, The Michael Richards Show, Watching Ellie, Watching Ellie (c'mon, it was two entirely different shows after its "retooling"), Listen Up-- All examples and victims of "The Seinfeld Curse," the made-up phenomenon that's been used to explain why former stars of Jerry Seinfeld's sitcom can't hold a show on their own and make it successful. In my opinion, that was just a saying that helped everyone sleep at night; those shows were all garbage. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss' latest foray into the half hour stage, The New Adventures of Old Christine, is fantastic, though -- at least according to this reporter, that is.

Over here at the TV Squad studios, this show has caused a little dissention among the ranks. Some of us fear the "Curse" is just waiting in the wings, while others like myself enjoyed it thoroughly. Regardless of what the majority of America thought of the show, they sure tuned into watch it. Although she didn't beat Deal or No Deal in her first showing at 8:30pm, she did trump the Donald at 9:30pm. Next week is going to remain the true test of her show though to see if she can retain that viewership. Will she sink or swim as she in her new permanent slot next week? Tune in to find out.

This show needs to get out of the How I Met Your Mother time slot...

Curb doesn't count?

I'm still worried by the name, I did enjoy it though.

I hope this show makes it. It's the only one of the post-Seinfeld shows that's been any good.

As long as Christine stays in the cushier 9:30 PM slot between 2.5 Hommes and CSI 305. I think it will do fine.
