We didn't have too many concerns that this wouldn't get picked up, but we're still super excited!
Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph will soon be joining the NBC family in a full-time capacity, as their new comedy pilot, now titled Up All Night, has been picked up for the 2011-12 season by NBC!
As we've reported, the series will focus on a Applegate as a working mother trying to cope with family pressures, as well as a stay-at-home husband (Will Arnett), and will be joined by the freshly picked-up musical comedy Smash, the British remake Prime Suspect, and Whitney Cummings' comedy pilot Whitney!
Excellent! Here's hoping the two comedies end up on the Thursday night line-up, right where they belong!

And he's doing a total 180 from his Sex days!
Sources are reporting that Michael Patrick King, the mastermind behind the Sex & The City franchise, has a new show that was just picked up by CBS.
The comedy, called Two Broke Girls, was developed by MPK and comedian Whitney Cummings and focuses on girls living in New York - but much differently than Carrie & Co.
The girls, described as two 22-year-olds, don't have the cash for Jimmy Choos or trips to the Met. As the titled suggests, the ladies are flat broke, but make do living in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Hmm. Wonder what their apartment will be like? We've seen cheap places in the city - they're closets! Should be nice to see how the other half lives!
Oooh! Maybe Michael could get Sarah Jessica Parker to cameo for contrast! That'd be fun!
