Three 40-something best friends from Los Angeles are flying to Paris when their plane makes an emergency landing in Cleveland. Realizing that all the norms from Los Angeles don't apply anymore, they decide to celebrate a city that values real women and stay where they're still considered hot.
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.

This is the only other show, besides Two and a Half Men, that I bother watching anymore. The writing is fresh and hilarious, the cast is solid and likable, and the acting is superb. I haven't laughed this consistently or this hard at a sitcom for years! Even though the situations Christine faces are over the top, I can easily relate to her. Her comment about the "hair arrow" nearly made me hyperventilate! (I'm still chuckling!) I adore all of the characters, particularly Matthew. He's cute, goofy, and charming. Keep up the good work! I only hope that the network doesn't change the time slot. Mondays from 9-10PM EST is the new (and only) "must see TV."
