UP ALL NIGHT
It looks like NBC’s sitcom “Up All Night” may have aired its final episode.
The series did horribly in the 8:30 p.m. Thursday timeslot last fall (“Parks and Recreation” is doing dramatically better there now), then the network decided to change it from a no-laughtrack sitcom (like all the other NBC sitcoms) to a laughtrack series (like Christina Applegate’s old series “Married With Children”), with a new showrunner.
But before the first laughtrack episode was shot, Applegate has decided to ditch “Up All Night.”
"It’s been a great experience working on 'Up All Night', but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors," Applegate said in a statement provided to The Los Angeles Times. "Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family. I will miss the cast, producers and crew, and wish them the best always.”
Applegate’s character was quite central to the series, so it wouldn’t shock me if NBC just decided to pull the plug and maybe even find new projects for co-stars Maya Rudolph (“Bridesmaids”) and Will Arnett (“Arrested Development,” “Sit Down Shut Up,” “Running Wilde”).
