LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Lifetime has scooped up the rerun rights to the CBS comedy "The New Adventures of Old Christine," with an eye toward adding the show to its lineup in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Lifetime will hold the exclusive cable rights to all 88 episodes of "Old Christine," which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a maxed-out working mother.

Other shows in Lifetime's comedy arsenal include "Will & Grace," "Frasier" and "Cybill."

The agreement was announced on the heels of a deal by Comedy Central and WGN America for the rerun rights to NBC's "30 Rock."
