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.

Should have been Back for More
24 May 2016 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest shows I've seen for some time, witty dialogue, two great lead comedy actors in Kelsey Grammar, and the gorgeous Patricia Heaton, with a good supporting cast. Unlike some, I found every one of the 17 completed episodes to be very enjoyable, thought Grammar and Heaton had great chemistry together, and the situations were always funny. Unfortunately, network executives don't always make wise decisions, and they stuffed up big time in canceling this show, that due to the writers strike, didn't even complete the first season. They didn't give it a chance, and therefore lost a potential classic. Thank God they've released it on a nice little DVD set, and we can at least enjoy the 17 episodes over and over. I for one would love to see Kelsey & Patricia teamed again in the future. Many far inferior shows to this one have gone on year after year!
