In the season premiere, it's the first day of fourth grade for Ritchie. When Christine and the other moms meet the class' disarmingly handsome new teacher, Daniel Harris (recurring guest star BLAIR UNDERWOOD), they decide to schedule a few parent-teacher conferences immediately. Meanwhile, no longer dating New Christine, Richard stays with Christine while he builds a new laundry room for her. But problems arise when Ritchie misinterprets the comfortable arrangement and believes his parents have gotten back together. Christine scrambles to find a way to explain that she could never reunite with Richard--or could she?

Critic Reviews for The New Adventures of Old Christine Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

What makes Christine unique is that it's currently the only female-led sitcom on the Big Four networks. Luckily, it's a terrific one.

What makes "The New Adventures of Old Christine" stand out from the crowd is that the characters don't tend to be cookie-cutter.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Christine does well when it latches on to little truths about the way we conduct our chaotic lives, but less so when it falls back on eccentric, non sequitur humor that's wacky for its own sake.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

In its second season, Julia Louis-Dreyfus's sitcom is still saddled with that cutesy title, but her Emmy-winning performance as a divorced mom in the singles market can be counted as one of TV's best.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

I'll say that it does seem to have found a bit of a groove, and it's not half-bad. It's not great, like a "Scrubs" or "The Office," but it's nowhere near the filth of, say, its "Two and a Half Men" lead-in.
