Answer: There are couple of reasons for this temporary shift — which HBO says will only continue through the end of the year, when movie premieres will return to Saturdays, and multiple series, including Rome, will begin on Sundays starting Jan. 7. First off, though HBO would never admit it, the pay giant has lost the Sunday-night watercooler battle to ABC.

TVGuide.com spoke to the 20-year-old about exactly what kind of "horsing around" she did on the set.
TVGuide.com: How did this Wildfire role come about? Charlotte Salt: I auditioned for the pilot over a year ago and I never heard anything more from them. But then I got a call saying, "Reme
Get. Out! Seinfeld's Elaine is moving into CBS' cushy Monday-night sitcom neighborhood. In The New Adventures of Old Christine (premiering tonight at 9:30 pm/ET), Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Christine Campbell, a health-club owner juggling single motherhood, an ex-husband (In Good Company's Clark Gregg) who's now dating a younger gal also named Christine (hence our title), and, of course, her own middling love life. Here's what the Emmy winner had to tell TV Guide about her new prime-time gig.
TV Guide: In its ads for The New Adventures of Old Christine, CBS is touting the show as a comedy about "the new American mom." How would you describe it?Julia Louis-Dreyfus: It's a realistic take on being a single working mo
