Up All Night Now a Multi-Camera Comedy

UP ALL NIGHT --  "Friendships and Partnerships" Episode 201 -- Pictured: (l-r) Christina Applegate as Reagan Brinkley, Maya Rudolph as Ava Alexander, Will Arnett as Chris

Up All Night is undergoing yet another overhaul — this time switching from a single-camera to a multi-camera format. Wow, just when we thought networks couldn't surprise us. The show, which still stars Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph, will film in front of a live studio audience for five episodes, the season's twelfth through sixteenth installments. (NBC ordered three additional episodes today, too.) This is complete madness! NBS should let Up All Night go full-on American Horror Story and start a whole new show with the same actors playing different characters with a different premise. Everybody wins.
