Up All Night
NBC's Up All Night should have been a hit. The show came with a strong comedy pedigree: It starred Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph and was produced by Saturday Night Live don Lorne Michaels. At the center was what seemed to be a relatable premise for the young adults watching the network's upscale comedies: a hip, young couple adjusts to life with a baby.
But two years after creator Emily Spivey shot the pilot (then called Alpha Mom), Up All Night is all but gone, suffering the death of a thousand tinkers. A heavily touted plan to morph the show into a multi-camera sitcom is now mostly abandoned, and some of the outlandish ideas bandied about for the revamp (including one idea involving rock star...

NBC is expanding its reliance on late-night staple Saturday Night Live, which is once again ready for primetime on a weekly basis.
NBC has quietly started airing the previous week's episode of SNL, edited from 90 minutes down to an hour, on Saturdays at 10/9c. The repeat doesn't attract a large audience, averaging just 2.3 million viewers on Feb. 23 (featuring guest host Christoph Waltz and musical guest Alabama Shakes). But it still managed to tie ABC (which ran the movie Dreamgirls) and CBS (a Vanity Fair Hollywood special) for No. 1 among adults 18-49 in its second half-hour.
