New Show #2: Up All Night

NBC. Premieres September 14 at 10 and continues on September 21 (Wednesdays) at 8.

Starring: Christina Applegate (Anchorman, Samantha Who, Broadway’s Sweet Charity, Married with Children), Will Arnett (GOB on Arrested Development, Blades of Glory, Running Wilde), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, SNL, Away We Go).

Plot: A couple has a baby girl, but they also have to work and balance their relationship with everything else. Maya Rudolph plays Applegate's clueless boss.

Why We Are Excited: Because we watched the preview (below) and it actually looked cuter than we had anticipated. We want to watch it, at least for a little while. It actually looks like the show has written Arnett a character who is not GOB Bluth (because you know Running Wilde was ripping that off, nasty, and the GOB sort of character is better in an ensemble). Also, the show runners are vets of 30 Rock and SNL, two uneven shows that still aren’t a complete waste of time. At all.

Why We Are Not Excited: The premise isn’t exactly groundbreaking. And both Applegate and Arnett have delivered us TV lemons recently. And does it seem like they show all the cute parts in the preview?


“Anticipation Score”- 8/10

  1. I'm banking on Christina Applegate tempering Will Arnett's over-the-top tendencies. You're right that his stock character is better in an ensemble.

  2. Yeah. She's adorable. But she was a little over-the-top in Samantha Who. She was pretty spazzy.

  3. This looks HILARIOUS, mostly because I can totally relate.

  4. Yeah, you're their audience. The childless among us really don't get it.
