In the '90s, the local TV news scene in Pittsburgh was dominated by anchors Chuck Darling and Kelly Carr. Off-screen, Chuck was a bit of a womanizer; Kelly, a bit uptight. As years went on, Chuck was promoted from city to city, but when an embarrassing newscast tirade ends up on the Internet, Chuck finds himself looking for work. When he gets the call to again co-anchor with Kelly, it's an offer he can't refuse. Back in Pittsburgh, Chuck is introduced to some new co-workers: Montana Stevens, the sexy, somewhat inept weather anchor, and Ryan Church, the overstressed news director. There are also familiar faces such as Marsh McGinley, the inappropriate sports anchor, and field reporter Gary Crezyzewski. But, mostly, there's Kelly, now a single mom to 10-year-old Gracie who, unbeknownst to Chuck, is the result of his drunken one-night rendezvous with Kelly when they worked together years ago.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoPilot||In the '90s, Chuck Darling and Kelly Carr had dominated the local TV news scene in Pittsburgh. While they had primetime news chemistry on-creen, off-screen Chuck was a bit of a self-centered womanizer, and Kelly a bit of an uptight know-it-all. When Chuck grabbed the chance to move up to a larger market, no tears were shed. But after an embarrassing on-air tirade ended up on the Internet, Chuck found himself on the downswing career-wise. He even questioned whether his lifestyle of chasing women and living in hotels was as exciting as it used to be. So when he gets the call to return to Pittsburgh to reunite with Kelly and try to take the newscast back to No. 1, it's an offer he can't refuse. Back in Pittsburgh, Chuck must adapt to a new, chaotic newsroom. In addition to Kelly, he re-teams with familiar faces including Marsh McGinley, the affable, endlessly inappropriate sports anchor, and Gary Crezyzewski, the perennially put-upon field reporter who always seems to get left out in the cold; and he has a few new coworkers: Ryan Church, the under-qualified, overstressed news director, and Montana Diaz Herrera, the perky, sexy, somewhat inept weather anchor. But perhaps the biggest change is that Kelly is now single mom to 10-year-old Gracie. With ego aplenty, Chuck and his former partner Kelly once made primetime news magic, but they wonder if they can make it happen again.||22:53||$1.99||View In iTunes|

A Good Strong Start
I am one of the biggest fans of Frasier, so when I heard that Kelsey Grammer was in a new sticom I immediately was interested. After seeing the pilot I am glad to see that intelligent comedy has not gone totaly down the pipes, granted they did have a couple of dumb humor jokes in there, but not so much so to turn me off of the show. The casting is wonderful, everyone did a great job with their roles, and I only hope that this show does well in the ratings department so it won't get cancelled 10 episodes into the season like a ton of other shows have been. As a minor side note, I don't understand why Fox wanted to put a sitcom in widescreen format, instead of fullscreen, that took a little time to get used to. Overall a good strong start to a new sitcom, just hope it keeps going uphill from here.
I liked it!
This pilot had a lot going on, but pilots usually do. I found the show to be very funny. I loved the characters and I with the right story line I can easily see this show lasting a couple of years.
Very funny first episode with a great heart at its center!
