After shutting down the show to retool it into a multi-camera, live-audience show, changing showrunners, seeing one of its stars leave and cutting the revamped show's order from five episodes to one, NBC is reportedly considering shutting it down for good. Which is the conclusion most who follow the show's saga came to weeks ago.
Both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter say the network may stop work on the lone multi-camera episode, in which the show would be recast from a series about first-time parents to a look behind the scenes of a struggling TV series. That's a potentially clever commentary on all that's happened with the show, but it hardly screams "mass audience appeal."
Christina Applegate left the show earlier this month, and her co-stars, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph, may be looking to move on as well.
