Storyline

After a glorious career all the way to L.A., a scandal forces Chuck to resume his co-anchorman job in a Pittsburgh TV station. This starts a bizarre social dynamic with his colleagues, especially his ex Kelly, whose daughter turns out to be his too. The others admire Chuck, but have their own problems, from eager beaver Gary, who gets all the rotten jobs plus bad luck, over the bird-brain weather woman and over-confident old sports reporter to young and insecure manager Ryan. Written by KGF Vissers

Good shows die young! Why?
26 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This television show was never given a chance. I never saw it on the air, and only picked up the first season after its cancellation. I don't have much to say about it, but it wasn't a bad show. The first few episodes were a bit ... err ... some might say "boring" but I'd say, not as entertaining as a comedy series should be. But as it progressed through, the show became funnier, and funnier, especially the episode with the fish. But, again, I say "Why must good shows, die young?" and I think its a solid question. I know, in the end, its all about money. Dollhouse was not up to scratch with its ratings, but sold the first season for MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of dollars, so it was picked up in the last minute. Another big example would be Family Guy, it got canceled, several times, and was brought back for the MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of dollars it made on DVD.

So again, I think Network's should have a two-year contract with every show it picks up, because if a show isn't its best at the first season, which most shows aren't, the Network's should realize, mistakes are made, but people learn from them. This show had so much potential, but now, its dead.
