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, â€œItâ€™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,â€ Then she added, â€œWorking 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.â€
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.
