CBS Orders Full Seasons of 'Christine,' 'Unit'

Earlier this year, "The Unit" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine" were uncertain midseason replacements, but now both shows have been ordered up for a full second season.

Industry trade papers have reported that both the Monday comedy and the Tuesday military drama have already been saluted with a back-nine order, bringing their season episode totals to the full compliment of 22.

Boosted by its "Two and a Half Men" lead-in and by star Julia Louis-Dreyfus' recent Emmy win, "Christine" pulled in 13.6 million viewers on Monday, better than last season's average of 12.5 million.

"The Unit," which stars Scott Foley and Dennis Haysbert, has stayed strong in a tough Tuesday hour, hooking 13.2 million viewers earlier this week.
