Multiple media outlets are now reporting that ABC has passed on picking up The New Adventures of Old Christine after it was canceled by CBS. Reportedly because of the high license fee required.

No surprise, ABC earlier passed on picking up Ghost Whisperer another canceled CBS show, which presumably had a better chance because it was co-produced by ABC.

Christine has had well below average ratings for CBS for several years. The conventional wisdom was that CBS put up with them to establish a Wednesday comedy “block”. That now abandoned (in favor of Thursday anchored by Big Bang Theory), Christine and Gary Unmarried could be put to rest.
