The New Adventures of Old Christine‘ has been renewed for a fifth season – the only question is what network has secured the rights to the comedy.

The Hollywood Reporter has this morning that ABC has signed an agreement with Warner Bros. TV to guarantee ‘Christine’ a full, 22-episode season if CBS decides not to renew the show for the 2009-10 season.
