Maya Rudolph’s Pregnancy Is Completely Ruining Up All Night’s Chances of Being SavedS

NBC has been trying to patch together its leaky newspaper boat of a television network any way it can, even if that means, say, pushing forward with the subverted gender role parenting sitcom Up All Night without star Christina Applegate. After all, Will Arnett's still game, and the five people who watched Arrested Development like Will Arnett. Maya Rudolph is up for another go-round, too, and people really like Maya Rudolph. Two out of three series stars isn't bad, but just when the show was planning a one-episode series reboot, Rudolph announced that she's pregnant with her fourth child with director Paul Thomas Anderson. Writers were going to scribble in a pregnancy subplot, but now it seems like show's writers are just saying, "Ugh, fuck it — let's try to save Community or something." While not quite dead yet, Up All Night is almost certainly slumped over in the plague wheelbarrow. [THR]
