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

User Reviews

 
one of the finest shows to grace the television screens since the hay-days of the 90's which set the benchmark for exceptional sit coms.
31 October 2007 | by tarulparekhSee all my reviews

This show is infused with a concoction of witty, hilarious one liners and good old fashioned sexual chemistry between the two main protagonists, Heaton and Grammar. The casting agents have hit the nail on the head with the wonderful ensemble of supporting actors which really do justice to their characters. It is hard to disassociate grammar from frasier crane, but it must be said, the transition from frasier to chuck was a smooth and successful one, one which was to my awe and surprise, this just further reinforces the theory he is one of the finest actors to grace our television sets.

I predict this show will provide many years of laughter and excitement for us all.
