1Christina Applegate Is Jumping Ship From “Up All Night”

Up All Night never did very well in the ratings despite having a pretty phenomenal cast, leading NBC to announce plans a while back to revamp the show into a multi-camera comedy complete with laugh track. Boo! Obviously not feeling that bullshit, Christina Applegate has decided to give it the old heave ho and get the hell out.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Christina Applegate has departed the sophomore comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

“It’s been a great experience working on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction, and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors,” Applegate said in a statement Friday. “Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true, and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family. I will miss the cast, producers and crew and wish them the best always.”

Ahead of its reboot from a single- to multicamera series, Applegate’s departure comes a month after series creator Emily Spivey also parted ways with the second-year comedy. They follow showrunner Tucker Cawley, who was replaced by Nurse Jackie’s Linda Wallem as NBC and studio Universal Television opted to make creative changes to the struggling series that also stars Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph.

Basically, “This show is sinking faster than the Titanic and there aren’t enough lifeboats. Women and children first. Bye, bitches!” They’re still going to continue with Will and Maya, who are comedic geniuses in their own right, but something tells me the upcoming season will be Up All Night‘s last.

    This show got off to a strong start with Maya as an Oprah-like talk show host and a bunch of cool supporting characters. I guess that somebody didn’t like Maya stealing their thunder because next thing you know, Maya’s “show” was cancelled and ijt became all about Will and Christina and her brother and the neighbors and the kid, and Maya showing up for no good reason. The show sucks. Congrats to Christina for having the courage to leave. And since Will Arnett dumped Amy Poehler, his career has tanked. Yay!!!
