Courtney Thorne-Smith is a master of long-running stints on television. First of all, having a main role on “Melrose Place” (yes, the original one) really brought her to into the spotlight. Then she went on to be one of the stars of “Ally McBeal”, which was almost equally successful. She then got top billing as James Belushi’s wife, Cheryl, in “According to Jim”, which finished off an 8-season run last year. And shortly after that show ended, she began a recurring role on “Two and a Half Men” that lasted 6 episodes. You can be sure of one thing: if her acting history tells us anything, you may want to keep an eye on her next television show, as she has a good track record of picking winners.
