Back to You – Season 1

Uniting two of sitcoms most famous contemporary stars, Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammar, did not save this sitcom from being cancelled after only two seasons. In its short time it did bring us some old style television in that it was filmed before a live studio audience and was based on the age old humour of male versus female sexual tension humour. Sadly maybe the time for this type of show has passed.

The premise was that Heaton's and Grammar's characters have a past and a child together from a time where they previously worked together as co-anchors at a news station. Now ten years later they are back together co-anchoring a news show in Pittsburgh.
