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

Comes up a bit short...
19 September 2007 | by tmartin-15See all my reviews

I was looking forward to seeing this show, but I wasn't sure when it was coming on. Luckily, I happened to scroll by it just as it was starting up. It has a great cast, a good premise, but the writing fails to impress. Many of the jokes are obvious one-liners that aren't even funny. Kelsey Grammar can't even save any of the lines. There is no originality, no cleverness; I could have written this show. The only good parts are when it is dramatic; the "humor" makes my head hurt. I need a good, original sitcom besides the shows that I watch on NBC, and this doesn't do the trick. It should be canceled soon. However, I'm giving it a 5 because the cast could possibly be able to save it.
