One of the funniest moments from this season’s Great News came when co-anchor Chuck Pierce (John Michael Higgins) was adamant about billionaire Fenton Pelt (Jim Rash) being a little box man.
Pierce’s dimwitted nature may be a constant source of irritation for his colleagues, but the bottom line is that he’s still part of “The Breakdown” family.
With Chuck’s job on the line, there will be serious moments featured on Great News’ season finale (airing January 25). Though it’s okay to get emotional regarding Chuck’s fate, Higgins explains why Great News doesn’t get over sentimental with the storytelling.
