I don’t know about you but every time I’ve seen an ad for the Up All Night, the NBC sitcom which debuts on Wednesday at 10 p.m., I giggle. And it’s pretty hard to make a jaded TV junkie like me chuckle. Maybe because it is something I as a parent can relate too, maybe it’s because I’ve been there, done that, or maybe it’s because I find Will Arnett hilarious. It’s probably all that and more.
Here are five reasons to tune in or set the Tivo for Up All Night.
The Cast 1 of 5You can't go wrong with Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett. Really. They're all awesome.
The Cast Part 2! 2 of 5All three of the main cast members have babies, little babies, like recent babies. So they really don't have to go all â€˜method' to get in touch with what it is like to deal with an infant and sleep deprivation.
Fresh & Irreverent 3 of 5The show as the Chicago Sun-Times stated is a "a largely fresh, irreverent look at child rearing." And after or when you are in the midst of the child rearing process, having a fresh and/or irreverent look at the whole shebang is not just needed but sometimes necessary.
More Family Show Viewing 4 of 5If you are enjoying other contemporary parenting hits like Modern Family and Parenthood, this fills out the trifecta.
And they said… 5 of 5And if those four other items haven't sold ya. Here are what others are saying. "Irresistibly cute" (Washington Post). "Right now, "Up All Night" is the TV equivalent of a glass of warm milk," (Which they actually didn't mean as compliment from the Boston Herald). But it's not all yucks. "The show can be, in odd passing moments, unexpectedly, almost nervily touching. (LA Times)
