Trivia

NBC announced drastic changes to the show for its third season. They wanted to switch the show from a single camera format to a multi-camera sitcom, possibly because multi-camera shows typically have lower physical production costs than single-camera shows. Furthermore, it was set up to explain the changed structure of the show by having Applegate, Arnett and Rudolph all playing actors who star in a fictional show-within-the-show called "Up All Night." Amidst the changes, series creator Emily Spivey and star Christina Applegate left the show. Despite looking for a replacement for Applegate, the series was eventually canceled. See more »

A show that gets better with time!!
14 April 2012 | by bazzak14See all my reviews

There are shows that are exceptional right from the word go!

Then there are shows that start with potential and deteriorate badly.

This show is neither of the above. While it is not exceptional from the word go it does start with obvious potential. However, it does not deteriorate and instead goes above and beyond the potential it showed in the first place.

I just watched the season one finale and it was an absolutely sublime 21 minutes of television.

I know that there are tons of shows out there to watch and you may have watched the first episode or two of this show and thought "this is not as funny as the cast promises" and then again you may have seen the potential but decided that you didn't want to waste your time seeing if it lived up to its potential. But trust me this show does get to the point of being as funny as you'd expect the ensemble cast to be and as I said already more than lives up to its potential.

This show is very much worth watching. At the start I would maybe have given the show a 6 or 7, I wasn't quite sure. But now after getting used to the characters and having watched them mature and deepen, especially in the last few episodes, I would easily rate this show at a 9.

The first season finale episode itself is worth 10 out of 10 and had me in tears. It was brilliant and well worth making your way through the whole of the first season just to experience. A point had to be dropped because that quality wasn't there from day one (or maybe it was and I just didn't understand the characters enough yet).

So if you've tried the show already and decided to move on before it hit its groove or if you've never watched the show yet, I heartily recommend watching every episode of this show and I do not believe you will be in any way disappointed.
