Becky (Rachel McAdams) is a hard-working morning TV show producer, or at least she was until she got fired. Desperate to get a job, she finally gets an interview with Jerry (Jeff Goldblum) - who is desperate to hire a producer for the struggling show "Daybreak". Becky accepts the job and it proves to be more difficult than even she might be able to handle. She has to fire the sexist co-host, then try to convince egotistical news reporter, Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), to take the job, and then try and get him to actually do the job, properly. And she has to do this while falling for handsome Adam (Patrick Wilson), and trying to save the show from plummeting ratings. Will Becky be able to hold on to her dream job and her sanity?

The Cisco phones used in the IBS offices are obviously not connected, as their LCD displays are blank. This happens multiple times in the film, notably whenever shots are made from behind Jerry's desk. The display on his phone is in fact also cracked from top to bottom. See more
I will have you know that this show is very important to a lot of people, including, but not limited, to me! My ass on the line here.
Actually, your ass is irrelevant. You're just a footnote. It's my ass. My reputation. My integrity.
