Christina Applegate is leaving Up All Night. NBC’s plan on revamping the single-cam comedy to a multi-cam, and supposedly it’s been a mess with the turnover. Anyway, to make it even messier, Christina Applegate has decided she’s leaving the show due to creative differences. She said, “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.”
Rumor is that they’re eyeing to bring in Lisa Kudrow to replace Christina, but why bother. The show sounds like a fat mess. They should just quit while they’re ahead and put a fork in it. I wonder what happened? It’s sad because they had such a killer cast. See you in Anchorman 2, Christina!
**UPDATE** Lisa Kudrow’s producing partner tweeted that there is no truth to the Lisa rumor.
