History Edit

Cancellation

On May 18, 2010, CBS canceled The New Adventures of Old Christine. Afterward, series creator Kari Lizer slammed the network, suggesting the decision to cancel the series was sexist. In an interview with TV Guide, Lizer stated: "As far as what happened at CBS, we've suffered from a serious lack of support from them since the beginning. I hate to say it, but i'm afraid they don't care much for the female-of-a-certain-age point of view over there. How else do you explain them squandering the talents of Julia [Louis-Dreyfus] and Wanda [Sykes]?" With support from Lizer, Warner Bros. Television began negotiations to continue the series on ABC, but a deal could not be made reportedly due to a high licensing fee to keep the series going.
