'Great News' episodes: 'Snowmageddon of the Century' and 'Serial Arsonist'

The episodes before "The Red Door" and "Celebrity Hacking Scandal" were "Snowmageddon of the Century" and "Serial Arsonist," which aired on May 9 in the US. In "Snowmageddon of the Century," there was a snowstorm that affected the city, trapping Katie's news crew in the studio overnight. During that time, Chuck suddenly wants to work with Katie. Portia tells Katie that the situation is kind of romantic. Plus, Carol steals wine from their competitor "Morning Wined Up with Kelly and Mary Kelly."

In "Serial Arsonist," Katie got a chance to be in front of the camera as a field reporter. An opportunity opened up for her when a former "The Breakdown" field reporter was revealed to be an arsonist. Of course, Carol is thrilled for her daughter. In fact, she became obsessed with it, behaving like a stage mum. As for Chuck, he felt jealous of Portia's creative pursuits and tried to compose a new theme song for their show.

The "Great News" show airs back-to-back episodes in the US on NBC every Tuesdays at 9-9:30 pm ET/PT and 9:30-10 pm ET/PT. Its executive producers are Tina Fey, Tracey Wigfield, David Miner, Beth McCarthy-Miller and Robert Carlock. "The Red Door" and "Celebrity Hacking Scandal" will be aired on May 16.
