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.

I totally disagree with the person who said the show is not funny, and they don't like Julia in it. I have completely the opposite opinion. My husband and I laugh so hard every time we watch the show! And something has to be pretty hysterical before I'll laugh out loud. Julia is THE best comedy actress there is as far as I'm concerned. She's a complete natural. Much like Lucille Ball. How anyone cannot see the humor in this show is beyond me! I laugh far more during that half hour segment than I might laugh during an entire comedy movie. I think all of the characters are excellent and the whole show is enough to make you "split a gut". Personally, I'm happy to see Julia in a new comedy. She has the uncanny ability to make me laugh. Wanda Sykes is a huge asset to the show as well. Her dry humor really adds to the balance of the cast.
