Up All Night 1×01 – Review

What was that?! Where was I supposed to laugh?! Please somebody tickle me, for NBC’s sake! It was supposed to be a comedy, but I think they misunderstood the concept of word comedy. It was more like drama, drama that tried to be funny in some occasions, but guess what, IT FAILED!

I’m talking about NBC’s new comedy series, UP ALL NIGHT! No doubt that it got sampled, but I think that was because of huge ratings of America’s Got Talent final. Numbers aside the pilot of this series sucked. I honestly tried to find a single scene in the show to make me laugh, but I just couldn’t. We get that NBC airs comedies targeted more at critics, but this wasn’t 30 Rock. I wanted to see what will Christina Applegate and Will Arnett do together, just like many viewers, and we all saw that it wasn’t anything special, anything that we used to see from them, or anything that we will watch.
The plot of the series promised to be interesting, but they couldn’t make it funny. There weren’t any funny moments neither Karaoke singing wasn’t funny at all. And at the end of the pilot it turned into family drama series. And if they think cursing on TV makes it funny, well they’re wrong.

A full season order for Up All Night will be waaay to much! I’ll get back for the 2nd episode, but I just don’t see how they can make it funnier! One thing for sure, I won’t be watching this next May.
