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.Written by

I really enjoyed this show! The entire cast was great and played so well off each other. The last season did get a little odd as sitcoms often do when they run out of fresh ideas, but then it sort of bounced back. I'm assuming it was cancelled without warning due to the last episode not really tying any loose ends up. You would never know it was the final episode. In fact it seemed as if they were setting up the next season which sadly never happened. Damn these networks!
