First the good news, for fans of waffles, Ron Swanson's mustache, public service and Paunch Burger. NBC renewed Parks & Recreation! Please head down to the Snakehole Lounge and celebrate accordingly. Now the bad news-- NBC has pulled the plug on several other series
The situation for NBC's Up All Night has never been especially great. In fact, when you review the history of the series and the changes it's undergone since before it even premiered, the state of what's left of the comedy, which has not technically been cancelled yet, is a bit easier to understand. Some shows have the plug pulled much too soon, however in the case of Up All Night, if and when the show is officially shut down, it can't really be argued that enough effort wasn't made to save this series.
The latest update on the fate of Up All Night is that the show will go on, kind of. The worst of the recent bad news for the comedy came when we learned that series star Christina Applegate was leaving the show. At that point, there were rumors that she would be replaced on the series, or else, that the NBC comedy was going to be cancelled, rather than switching from its single-camera format to a multi-camera format for the planned five remaining episodes of the second season.
Things are looking really bleak for NBC's Up All Night. That in itself isn't exactly huge news. Last fall we learned that NBC was switching the single-camera comedy to a multi-camera comedy for the remaining episodes of its second season. And about a month ago, it was reported that series creator Emily Spivey was exiting the series. Now comes word that star Christina Applegate is departing the show as well, which could mean the end of the comedy, though they're reportedly looking to replace her.
It's that time of year again! The big guy's making a list and checking it twice, so we thought we'd take the opportunity to share our own personal TV-related wishlist in anticipation of the coming new year. Between new and returning shows, not to mention a couple of series drawing to a close, there's so much potential for great television in the new year and we're especially hopeful that our holiday dreams come true this year.
NBC comedy series Up All Night has already experienced a showrunner change in the series' relatively young existence, so news that it's receiving another one seems far less surprising by comparison to word that the single-camera comedy is shifting to a multi-camera format. The latter piece of news broke earlier this fall and today comes word that Linda Wallem stepping in to run the series.
In a highly unusual move, NBC has decided to make a big change on the comedy Up All Night. The series, which currently films in a single-camera format, will return after a winter hiatus having been converted to a multi-camera format. Producers are hoping the change will give the show more energy – and no doubt better ratings as well.
The second season of Up All Night will see an old Saturday Night Live comedy team reunited. Rachel Dratch has signed on to appear in a guest role on the show, where she will once again share the screen with Maya Rudolph, with whom she once worked on the SNL stage.
After hesitating just long enough to make a lot of fans nervous, NBC has finally made commitments for another season of two of its hit comedies, Parks & Recreation and Up All Night. Like network siblings Community and 30 Rock, they've only gotten orders for 13 episodes
As we hear the good news released for some new TV comedies headed to NBC, we're left to wonder what will become of the currently airing shows. Will they be back next fall, or left off the line-up come next week when NBC unveils their full 2012-2013 programming. There are some vague updates on some NBC comedies, most of which sound fairly optimistic.
Within the boundaries of the 30-minute comedy, and well within the world of what we expect from our modern sitcoms, Up All Night is doing something special, telling the story of a couple we feel we know, in a stage of life that's all too rarely seen on TV. It's glossy and jokey and polished in a way most new sitcoms aren't, but Up All Night is the kind of throwback that also feels consistently, wonderfully new
Here at Cinema Blend, some of our writers consume quite a bit of TV every week. So, we asked them, if you could save one single program in danger of being cut, which one would it be?
