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 »

Will Arnett and Christina Applegate are Golden!
27 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

I love this show. Will Arnett and Christina Applegate are hilarious as new parents adjusting to life after the 20-something party years. Will plays a stay at home Dad trying to stay sane while his wife becomes the primary breadwinner as a television executive for a talk show on the down slide, Ava. Ava (played by Maya Rudolph) is the shows one weakness. While Maya Rudolph is a fabulous actress, Ava is a one note character that makes the show somewhat awkward. This show is really unique. There have been tons of shows about families with lots of kids and parents that have been together for ages and there are lots of shows about young love, but what happens in between? This take on the family sit-com reaches to capture a younger audience, but is still likely to trigger memories in the 40+ demographic category. Check it out on hulu. I can't wait to see what's next.
