Welcome To New York premiered on CBS on October 111, 2000. Weatherman Jim Gaffigan's not in Indiana anymore. When Jim worked the local news in Fort Wayne, life was good. He was the big fish, popular at work, even captain of the company softball team. But he's quickly learning that being the new "meteorologist" for AM New York is a whole new ball game. Jim's boss, Marsha Bickner is the high-strung producer who hired him. But she can't remember whether Jim's from Minnesota or Indiana, and she doesn't much care, as long as she can change his wardrobe, fill in his thinning hair and get to work on his "corn-fed belly." Making matters worse, there's the security guard Jim already offended and the assistant he fired without even knowing it. And that's just within two hours of arriving at his new job! Maybe they just don't understand Jim's simple Midwestern sensibilities. Or maybe he has a lot to learn about life in the big city. Who knows? Join Christine Baranski and standup comedian Jim Gaffigan in this Midwest-vs.-midtown comedy about an innocent man making his way in a tough new town-with a corn-fed belly, to boot.
