A Chicago newscast gets shaken up with some spicy Pepper, played by Rebecca Romijn, after the anchor position she's in line for is handed off to the same charismatic fella she just bagged. Billed as a comedy, the show often has Romijn playing it straight to allow costar Brooke Burns, as her uptight sister, to be adorably witty. Chemistry between Dennis and Babcock, the humorously named anchor, is understood, but misses the mark in execution—which could be the sole reason their romance likely will not thrive until future seasons. If the show makes it that far.
