One of the best new shows of the season is NBC's Up All Night. The network raised more than a few eyebrows with their mid-season schedule but one move that shouldn't be scrutinized was moving the new sitcom to Thursday night. The show is a much better fit with 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation and The Office than Whitney. It's nice to see NBC throw some support behind at least one good show and, with the latest guest star announcement, it's only getting better for Up All Night. It seems Will Arnett's Chris has a brother.
As though its move to Thursday nights next winter/spring wasn’t good news enough for NBC’s comedy Up All Night, now it looks like the network has decided to extend the series’ first season by two episodes.
There’s good news and bad news for Community fans. The good news is Community isn’t technically cancelled. The bad news is, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be back next January when the rest of their Thursday night line-up returns from the winter hiatus.
It’s an NBC miracle! Or it will be, if this rumor turns out to be true. Since the start of the fall TV season, I’ve been thinking that Up All Night belongs on Thursday nights with the other single-camera comedies, while Whitney should be put somewhere else (like CBS, with the rest of the multi-camera comedies). It looks like part of that might actually be happening.
There’s good news, if you're a fan of ABC's Revenge. Once again, despite the reported results of a certain survey things are looking good for Revenge as the ABC drama series saw yet another increase in viewers for the second week in a row! There's some not-so-great news for X Factor, and even worse news for Up All Night.
If there were any justice in the world (of entertainment), Will Arnett would be one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet. Don't get me wrong, the man is doing pretty, pretty good but after his turn as GOB on the now legendary Arrested Development, I thought he would be a instant comedy leading man. He's still working on the leading man part but he does get to do a lot of great guest work, most notably as Devon Banks on NBC's 30 Rock, a role he'll revisit this season.
It's not all bad news at the network, though-- NBC has given full-season orders for Up All Night, the bona fide comedy hit starring Will Arnett and Christina Applegate, as well as Whitney, considered by critics to be the redheaded stepchild of the otherwise solid Thursday night lineup
The next new episode of NBC’s comedy Up All Night has Chris and Reagan assessing their car situation, which will most likely have to change now that they have a baby. We have some clips from the episode, one if which shows the scene that likely inspires their decision to get a new car.
Lee is on board to play a single dad who will become a love interest for Ava (Maya Rudolph). His character will first appear in November and could become recurring if all goes well. Hopefully, all balls will land in the right pockets. Lee is currently hanging out in TV limbo while waiting to hear from TNT about whether or not his current series, Memphis Beat, will be renewed for a third season.
Look out Robin Sparkles, there’s a new fake pop-star in town and her name is Ava. If you’ve been watching NBC’s hilarious new comedy Up All Night, then you know that Maya Rudolph plays Ava, Christina Applegate’s character’s friend and talk show host boss. This video shows Ava’s earlier claim to fame.
NBC’s Up All Night is already shaping up to be one of the funniest new comedies of the fall season. The half-hour comedy, which stars Christina Applegate and Will Arnett, premiered last night on NBC, introducing us to Reagan and Chris, two new-parents dealing with the life-changes that come with having a baby.
NBC’s Up All Night premieres today, bringing Christina Applegate and Will Arnett together as two people attempting to tackle the challenges that come with being new parents. If you’re a fan of Applegate and Arnett separately, expect something twice as funny from the two of them when they combine comedic forces on screen.
Tomorrow night, NBC will celebrate the humor of parenting with the premiere of Up All Night, a half-hour comedy about two later-in-life parents who are struggling with the challenges of taking care of a baby.
A vampire and a slayer appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night.

As far as TV show retools go, I’m usually an optimist. Especially when it comes to pilots that haven’t aired yet. If major changes need to be made, better they’re made before the public has the chance to form a negative opinion on the show. I haven’t seen the original pilot episode of Up All Night, but from the sound of it, the changes being made to it are for the better.
