NBC’s new comedy, Up All Night, may not be a big success but it’s one of the best performing shows on the network right now. It’s not a big shock that they want some more.
Starring Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph, and Jennifer Hall, Up All Night has been averaging a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.63 million total viewers. It currently ranks as NBC’s second-highest rated show of the season.
Up All Night received a full season order last month, along with fellow newbie Whitney. Now, the peacock network has increased the sitcom’s season order by two episodes, bringing the total to 24.
It would certainly be difficult to classify the show as a hit but it may be one of NBC’s best chances to build one. NBC’s had dismal luck with new shows this season with the exception of Whitney and possibly Grimm.
Come January 12th, they’re switching Whitney to Wednesdays and giving Up All Night the post-Office slot, no doubt hoping that the strong lead-in will help boost the show’s ratings. Hopefully that little gamble doesn’t hurt both new sitcoms in the process.
What do you think? Are you a fan of this show? Are you glad there’s going to be more episodes? Wat do you think of the scheduling change?
