The article reports on the changes in the schedule of the comedy series "The New Adventures of Old Christine" in the U.S. The series which stars Emmy-winning Julia Louis-Dreyfus will be moved to Wednesdays at 8 p.m. and will have a new hourlong comedy block. Brad Adgate of Horizon Media thinks that CBS Television Network would really be surprised if that show performed in that time period. Kari Lizer, series creator, said that since expectations for Wednesdays are low, she is happy with it.
