Molly Shannon Staying Up All Night

Molly Shannon.

Molly Shannon will guest-star on a November episode of Up All Night as an "incompetent associate producer" on Maya Rudolph's Oprah-like talk show. So far, Shannon's only set for one episode, but the role could recur, according to TV Guide. Everyone can agree that Molly Shannon is a treat and a half, but the last thing Up All Night needs is another character. It's still figuring out how to balance screen time and story lines among its actual cast — plus, doesn't Jennifer Hall's ditzy assistant character already fill the show's quota for incompetent employees? Wave a magic wand to work all the kinks out of Up All Night, Molly Shannon! We believe in you. [TV Guide]
