Kristin is an American comedy television series starring Kristin Chenoweth. The series premiered June 5, 2001, on NBC.[1] The show was canceled after six episodes.[2]


Kristin Yancey (Kristin Chenoweth), a perky Oklahoman woman, takes a job as a secretary in New York City while she looks for work in show business. What she does not know is that her boss Tommy Ballantine (Jon Tenney), hired her so he would not be tempted to sleep with her.



Michael Speier of Variety called the series a "dud" with "incredibly stale one-liners, on-the-cheap production values and boring supporting players".[1] Anita Gates in The New York Times wrote: "The plots and situations are just tired, like the show's saccharine theme song".[3]
