Trivia

NBC announced drastic changes to the show for its third season. They wanted to switch the show from a single camera format to a multi-camera sitcom, possibly because multi-camera shows typically have lower physical production costs than single-camera shows. Furthermore, it was set up to explain the changed structure of the show by having Applegate, Arnett and Rudolph all playing actors who star in a fictional show-within-the-show called "Up All Night." Amidst the changes, series creator Emily Spivey and star Christina Applegate left the show. Despite looking for a replacement for Applegate, the series was eventually canceled. See more »

Christina Applegate better on Samantha Who?
19 January 2012 | by Maniac-9See all my reviews

This is definitely not Christina Applegate's best series she has done. Samantha Who? she played a really interesting character who really got a lot of character development. Here it's basically a paint by the numbers show with unoriginal humor and the premise of the show gets put on hold when they fell like it. It just seems like the actors on the show are going through the motions and collecting a paycheck. Jason Lee while only a recurring character is basically wasted also.

The writing is very lacking where you don't really care about any of the characters whether they are main or supporting characters. Will Arnett was much better off in a recurring character role like he had on 30 Rock then being a main star of a show IMO.
