If people ask me, "Are women funny?", I shall direct them to the CBS television network, which broadcasts a funny sitcom that features several funny women, called The New Adventures of Old Christine. It stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, with her character's best friend played by Wanda Sykes.

And I can report exclusively that Michaela Watkins, unfairly booted from SNL after less than a full season, returns to her recurring role as Matthew's ex-girlfriend, Lucy, on the Dec. 9 episode in a very memorable scene when she SPOILER ALERT. I don't want to say much more. But suffice it to say, she'll appear in future episodes. In the Dec. 9 show, meanwhile, Amy Sedaris also takes on a large guest-starring role as the SPOILER ALERT who interacts with Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Barb (Wanda Sykes) because she was a SPOILER ALERT. Sedaris steals pretty much all of her scenes. It's quite funny. How do I know all of this? Because I was at the taping.
