At the start of the film, Becky Fuller (Rachel [=McAdams=]) is fired from her beloved job as the producer of a morning talk show. She takes a pay cut to work at a different morning show called ''Daybreak'' that has terrible ratings and is headed for cancellation[[note]]Not to be confused with the similar British morning show of the same name and status at that time[[/note]] unless she, and the oddball employees that work for her, can make the program a success. She also ends up in a relationship with another producer (Patrick Wilson's character), but her workaholic attitude is constantly preventing her from having any sort of a normal life.

The main focus of the movie is her relationship with one of her favorite news broadcasters (played by Harrison Ford) who has been forced to work on her cheery morning show even though he is accustomed to hard-hitting journalism. He begrudges the assignment and plays the part of the cranky old man who drives Becky up the wall with his antics and general grumpy attitude.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Mike comes on the set and declares: "I've won eight Peabodies, a Pulitzer, sixteen Emmys, I was shot through the forearm in Bosnia, pulled Colin Powell from a burning jeep, laid a cool washcloth on Mother Teresa's forehead during a cholera epidemic, had lunch with Dick Cheney." Becky takes him down a peg by responding "You're here for the money."

** A variant is seen in how Adam describes Mike as the third worst person in the world. The other two are Kim Jong-Il... and Angela Lansbury. ("She knows what she did.")
