CBS is gearing up for their Fall season and on the list of hot new sitcoms is Accidentally On Purpose, starring Jenna Elfman and Jon Foster.

Elfman plays Billie, a newspaper critic who is struggling to survive a humiliating break-up with her handsome boss (Grant Show).

And what's a girl's best way to getting over a guy? Another guy, of course!

Enter Zack (Jon Foster).

Looking for only a one-night stand, Billie suddenly finds herself pregnant with her "boy toy's" baby.

While Billie's best friend Olivia (Ashley Jensen) and her younger, married, more conventional sister Abby (Lennon Praham) offer tons of advice on how to manage the unexpected yet much anticipated bundle of joy, Billie and Zack agree to a platonic relationship that finds him moving in.

Freeloading friends, enter stage left.

Billie suddenly finds her home turned into a frat house and wonders if she's living with a roommate, a boyfriend, or another child to raise.

I've admitted more than once that I'm a television junkie, so I was so excited to be given the chance to watch several CBS' new fall line-up pilots including Accidentally On Purpose.

Since her days of Dharma & Greg (1997-2002), I've been a huge Jenna Elfman fan! And her role as Billie in this new sitcom is very reminiscent of Dharma Montgomery; less the hippie parents and the intrusive, wealthy in-laws.

While watching the pilot episode, I found myself giggling at situations that no 30-something, career-building woman should ever find herself in.

Accidentally On Purpose brings together a great cast who have an awesome rapport that makes a fun, easy sitcom that engages the viewer from the very beginning.

Based on the book written by Mary F. Pols titled Accidentally On Purpose: A One-Night Stand, My Unplanned Parenthood, And Loving The Best Mistake I Ever Made (Harper Collins, June 2008), it's a sitcom that's sure to offer pee-in-your-pants comedy for many seasons to come!
