Up All Night’s rating have been so bad that NBC decided to change the way the show tapes its episode. Instead of taping it like a drama, they have been on hiatus to retool the show so that when it comes back it would be filmed in front of a live studio audience. Well today Deadline is reporting that Christina Applegate is leaving the show. She said, “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,” Then she added, “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.”
At this point the show’s future in unknown, but according to Deadline one solution is to have Lisa Kudrow join the show. I say with the ratings that it has been getting, it is better to pull the plug than trying to make it work. I don’t know why NBC is doing everything they can to save this show, I think we can all agree it is time it went to a better place.
