Up All Night is a new series on NBC that premiered this week. It stars Christina Applegate and Will Arnett, as cute new parents working to find the balance of a new baby, work and their home life. New mom, Reagan, is going back to work while dad, Chris is going to be a stay-at-home dad.
I missed the pilot -– it was on at 10pm Wednesday and I had been in bed for hours –- but I just watched the preview online…
It’s funny because like many new parents, we can definitely relate to the show on many levels. Even though we don’t call my husband a stay-at-home dad, he’s currently at home with Wolf while I’m back at work. I wish the tables were turned but this is our life right now. Watching the preview made me giggle thinking about dad/baby scenarios with Wolf. I imagine the two of them being silly together during the day. But there’s quite a few elements of the show that I find unbelievable. The swearing, the partying? A bit too much.
Did you watch the show? What do you think? I like where it’s headed and I’m excited to watch more episodes. Next week Up All Night will air in its regularly scheduled time slot, 8:00 p.m. ET on Wednesdays. If you missed the pilot episode you can watch it online at NBC.com.
