Will Arnett has lost his TV wife, because Christina Applegate is taking the next dinghy to dry land before Up All Night sinks to the bottom completely. NBC said a few months ago that Up All Night would get overhauled and they were planning to change it from a single-camera comedy to a multi-camera sitcom complete with a live studio audience and a laugh track. Even though one of the stars of the show has exited stage left, NBC is still planning to shoot a new season with Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph and they’re planning to bring in another lead actress. Kelly Bundy gave this open goodbye letter to The Hollywood Reporter and basically said that she’s leaving before shit gets even messier:
“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. 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.”
Now that Kelly Bundy has quit that bitch, the only way NBC can save Up All Night is if they keep the title, fire Will Arnett, fire Maya Rudolph, dump the plot, hire the legendary Rhonda Shear and just have her introduce B-movies all night. Like this!
When NBC announced they were doing a show called Up All Night a couple of years ago, I really thought it was a reboot of this and got really excited. Rhonda Shear needs a major comeback (and no, that HSN shit doesn’t count)!
