Up All Night

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 11.10pm, Seven If you have been en­joy­ing this dry, gen­uinely funny com­edy, do not de­spair that tonight is the 15th episode of the de­but sea­son: there are still nine to go. Also, 11 episodes of the sec­ond sea­son are al­ready in the can. Cre­ated by Satur­day Night Live staff writer Emily Spivey, Up All Night is about the re­turn to work of tele­vi­sion pro­ducer Rea­gan (Christina Ap­ple­gate) fol­low­ing the birth of her first child. Rea­gan works on her best friend Ava’s talk show and is sup­ported by stay-at-home hus­band Chris (Will Ar­nett) as they try to ad­just to life with baby Amy. Last week Rea­gan knocked her in­sides out try­ing to get in­fant Amy into a snooty school. Tonight it’s Valen­tine’s Day. When Ava (Maya Ru­dolph) and her squeeze Kevin (Ja­son Lee, My Name is Earl ) have a ma­jor bar­ney, Rea­gan and Chris fear their own lives have be­come pre­dictable and pas­sion­less. This is one of the sharpest come­dies on air. Why it lives in the late-night realm of in­fomer­cials and musty old movies I have no idea.
