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

Best Sitcom About Broadcast News since Newsradio
27 February 2008 | by hfan77See all my reviews

I have seen several episodes of Back to You and I feel that its the best sitcom about broadcast news since Newsradio. The shows are well-written and the cast is a mixture of veterans and young actors. Kelsey Grammar doesn't seem to be typecast as Frasier Crane, playing co-anchor Chuck Darling, though he has a little of Dr. Crane's pomposity in his new role. Patricia Heaton is outstanding as Kelly Carr. Fred Williard adds a veteran presence to the show, Ayda Field brings beauty as meteorologist Montana, Josh Gad as the young news director and Ty Burrell as Gary round out the news crew. Let's not forget Laura Marano, fresh off Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader as Kelly's daughter, Gracie who plays the role very well.

My only complaint about the show is the constant fighting between Chuck and Kelly. I feel that it should be more of an ensemble comedy and less of a verbal battle between the two sitcoms veterans.

In an era of boring one-camera comedies, Back to You has revitalized the traditional sitcom genre.
