Christine is divorced from Richard but continues to see him as a best friend, even when he becomes involved with a woman, also named "Christine." Living in an apartment with her son Ritchie, her brother Matthew rents a separate room in an outbuilding and the two of them feed off the insecurities of the other implanted by their mother during their upbringing. "Old" Christine runs a gym with her best friend Barb, whose name describes her wit. Christine's insecurities are not helped by the other parents at a posh school she and Richard send their son to, one that is generally thought to be beyond the means of regular working people.

Many items and signs decorating Old Christine's living room were later used to decorate the girls' apartment in 2 Broke Girls (2011). See more »
We woke up; I thought she'd leave. Then she made eggs; I thought she'd eat her eggs and leave. Then she took a bath; I thought she'd take a bath and leave. Then she took a nap; I thought she'd take a nap and leave. Then she decided to sunbathe.
God, it's like a sexy Dr. Seuss book.
I don't want her here all day. I don't like her anyway.

This show is so good and the fact that most people will never know that really brings me down. The thing about this show is that you must watch several shows to get the jokes. Most of the jokes are relative to past shows and really are only funny when you know the characters. I look forward to watching this show any time i can. I have taken the time to tell people about the show and anyone who has taken the advice to watch four shows has turned into a huge fan. I just ask that before this show is pulled off the air that some of us ban together and really give this show a shot.
If that does not get you then maybe just try watching it again. I believe that show has realized that the idea of really good smart comedy is overlooked. So they have put a lot more just in your face comedy. Some of the moments in this show are so funny that have laughed until i hurt.
Go out and try something new.
