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.
