Episode 01-03: Wednesday, 9/28/11
The numbers continue to come tumbling down. This week’s episode lost 13% in the demo, falling to a 2.1 rating with 5.32 million viewers. Fortunately for fans of Up All Night, most of the rest of NBC shows are doing worse. It’s still safe.
Season average: 2.7 demo with 7.44 million.

Episode 01-02: Wednesday, 9/21/11
For week two, this sitcom came down 35% in the 18-49 demo to a 2.4 rating and 6.05 million viewers. The drop was to be expected, especially considering that the premiere had a very strong lead-in. Up All Night was in a distant fourth place in the timeslot but, considering the rest of NBC’s schedule, isn’t doing too badly.
Season average: 3.0 demo with 8.5 million.

Episode 01-01: Wednesday, 9/14/11
For the premiere, NBC gave the sitcom a strong lead-in with the season finale of America’s Got Talent. It garnered a 3.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.95 million viewers. Those are positive numbers but still represent a big drop from the last half-hour of the reality competition. On top of that, at least 22% of viewers tuned out between the first and second halves of Up All Night’s first episode. That’s not a good sign. It’s positive that the sitcom was widely sampled but it’s way too early to label it a success.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I absolutely love this show! I think ppl need to give out a chance. I look forward to it every week. Maya Rudolph is hilarious!

  2. says

    I absolutely adored this show and if any of you had actually watched more than one or two episodes you would agree. It has a lot of personal- funny humor especially for people with upcoming families and who enjoy some dry humor. I enjoyed this show and adored the roles that they played. My friends and family agree. If I don’t like something I tend to stay away from it. But for the people who did enjoy this show, the bad ratings and diss on NBC’s network was completely unnecessary.

    • christa says

      I agree with Ashley. This show is hilarious. It did take a couple of episodes to really grab me. But now I absolutely love it!

  3. Craig says

    Only NBC executives could think that Applegate and Arnett would generate large numbers based on their past shows. Neither of these two have been lighting up the ratings with their shows. Personally, I have enjoyed their different shows, but none of the shows have lasted very long with either of these two as the main star.

  4. Craig says

    After reading this article, I feel really bad for NBC. I have stopped Tivoing this show, because it just isn’t funny, but it is in the top 3 for ratings on NBC. Poor NBC. When even their top rated shows are boring, you have to feel bad for the network.

  5. Sharon Adams says

    This is the most boring, silly show I have watched. Could not finish the first episode.

    Standing at their kitchen window was the most action that I saw. And, that lady on the TV show holding the baby was very unrealistic even for a woman who isn’t into babies.
    Something a little more intelligent would be nice.

    I LOVE Christina Applegate and think Will Arnet is hysterically funny, but this show is not. I was bored and didn’t laugh at all. Totally bummed. I think the writing is poor and not good material for these two actors. Not sure who the writers are, but if it’s Will Arnet, I’d be surprised.
