'Old Christine' creator slams show axe

The creator of The New Adventures of Old Christine has criticised the show's cancellation.

Speaking to TV Guide Magazine, Kari Lizer suggested that CBS's decision to axe the series was sexist.

"As far as what happened at CBS, we've suffered from a serious lack of support from them since the beginning," she said. "I hate to say it, but I'm afraid they don't care much for the female-of-a-certain-age point of view over there. How else do you explain them squandering the talents of Julia [Louis-Dreyfus] and Wanda [Sykes]?"

Lizer played down speculation that the show will be picked up by ABC, but added that she wants the series to continue.

"I don't think we're going to know anything about ABC for a few days," she said. "I'm hoping for life after CBS."
