In the ’90s, Chuck Darling (Kelsey Grammer) and Kelly Carr (Patricia Heaton) had dominated the local TV news scene in Pittsburgh. While they had primetime news chemistry on-screen, 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 (Fred Willard), the affable, endlessly inappropriate sports anchor, and Gary Crezyzewski (Ty Burrell), 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 (Josh Gad), the under-qualified, overstressed news director, and Montana Diaz Herrera (Ayda Field), the perky, sexy, somewhat inept weather anchor. But perhaps the biggest change is that Kelly is now single mom to 10-year-old Gracie (Laura Marano).
With ego aplenty, Chuck and his former partner Kelly once made primetime news magic, but they wonder if they can make it happen again.
