Chuck and Kelly, Doin' It Again is a funny enough final episode of "Back to You"s only season
On the day Gracie's parents plan to tell their staff about the daughter, there's a new ad campaign with the slogan, "Chuck and Kelly, Doin' It Again" with a poster of Chuck standing behind Kelly who's body is leaning forward in front of him. The first person they tell is station manager Ginger Ko who won't kill the publicity and threatens to add early morning show duties if Chuck and Kelly make their secret known publicly. They ask Gary about his early a.m. stint who mentions how no one called when a deer went across or he blooded his lip while biting it on air. Kelly herself keeps offering free coffee for everyone when she starts to talk. But when they see Gracie's disappointment on her face when asked to keep quiet for a while, Chuck reveals all as the last item on their newscast. That gets some cheers from the staff as well as mentions on every radio station Chuck dials through as he, Kelly, and Gracie drive on the way home. On the morning show the next day, the two news anchors are suffering colder air and another deer (or perhaps the same one) going through. Oh, and between all this, Marsh trades Gary his tie and keeps trying to get it back...This was a very funny episode with all the double entendres that provided most of the laughs. Too bad it aired a few days after Fox had already announced "Back to You"s cancellation. It's also too bad the network has pulled a couple of other new episodes from being broadcast during this summer season. If a DVD set comes up, hope those unaired ones are there. Not always the funniest show on the air-"The Big Bang Theory" and "30 Rock" claim those distinctions-this Kelsey Grammar-Patricia Heaton vehicle was funny enough whenever those two traded lines together. It was a mistake to get rid of Laura Marano but Lilly Jackson did the best she could in taking over for Gracie. The supporting cast didn't always gel but they gave it their best shot. Certainly James Burrows is still one of the best sitcom directors ever. So, all in all, "Back to You" was uneven but reasonably entertaining during its only season. Oh, and Mr. Grammar, I hope you're doing well after your recent ailment...
