Christina Applegate Doesn’t Want To Stay Up All Night Anymore

And she is DUNZO!

Just before filming was set to begin again this month, Christina Applegate is bailing on Up All Night.

Say whaaaaat?!

It’s true! Christina is calling it quits with the NBC show just as five additional episodes were set to be filmed with a new, traditional multi-camera format with a live studio audience.

Christina released a statement about her shocking and sudden departure:

“It’s been a great experience working on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors. Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family. I will miss the cast, producers and crew, and wish them the best always.”


Sounds like someone wasn’t too happy with the changes that included series creator Emily Spivey leaving the show over creative differences.

There have been quick rumors Lisa Kudrow was going to step in to take over Christina’s role, but that has already been denied on Twitter by her producing partner, Dan Bucatinsky.

We have a bad feeling this show isn’t going to be staying up all night for much longer.

    The show was bad… honestly it was the right choice!

    I enjoyed the show, but I definitely don't blame her for bailing. The fact that they were going to change the format to a "traditional" multi-camera format (with a live studio audience) would make an serious actor quit. New episodes would never gel with the old ones, and the series would look really bad once the show was put into syndication. It is also a huge insult to the talent to change formats like that. NBC just doesn't understand comedy, and sad attempts to turn critically aclaimed shows into "laugh track" sitcoms shows that they are a bunch of dinosaurs.

    I am an Asian Master of the high order of Tu'Fan-Gal, and I know where you live. I read your thoughts at night, and chase you in your dreams. You are a sinful creature who exposes truths that the world is not ready for. When the mothership comes and our star troopers arrive to conquer this tiny world, we will ensure that you are in the urainium mines every day, working like the kumarian slug that you are. As your pathetic empire crumbles, a new Galactic age shall begin. Enjoy these final moments of peace.

    Hollywood dosen't forget. Applegate jumped the shark with "don't tell mom the babysitter's dead" anyways.

    She already has a starring role in the upcoming Anchorman 2. She will be fine.
