CBS is expected to announce tomorrow that it has ordered 22 more episodes of The New Adventures of Old Christine, the two-year-old comedy that’s already netted star Julia Louis-Dreyfus (pictured) an Emmy, according to a key insider. There was some speculation that CBS would pass on the show, which skews older than its other comedies like How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory. As a result, rumors were rampant that ABC was prepared to pick up the sitcom, should CBS balk at another season. CBS will unveil its fall schedule Wednesday in New York City.
