NBC Orders More 'Up All Night'

NBC has given its struggling comedy 'Up All Night' starring Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph one last chance to improve its ratings.

'Up All Night' has been doing incredibly bad this season, barely reaching three million viewers an episode. The series has gone through many changes from the first season including a different setting, adding characters, losing characters etc and it has not helped. 

NBC has now decided to give the series three more episodes bringing its sophomore season up to 16 episodes. Also, NBC has decided to convert from single-camera to multi-camera format shot in front of a live audience. The first 11 episodes which will air through to December 2012 will be filmed without an audience. It will come back in the spring after a three month hiatus to its new multi-camera format for the final five episodes.

It seems like NBC really loves the actors and producers of the series and will try anything to attract more eyeballs. Hope this works out for them. If not, it will certainly be canceled by May 2013.

Here is a breakdown of the last five aired episodes:
02 - Home/Office - September 27 - 3.26 million viewers
03 - Swingers - October 4 - 3.13 million viewers
04 - Jerry Duty - October 11 - 2.88 million viewers
05 - Another Saturday Night - October 18 - 2.99 million viewers
06 - Ma'am'd - October 25 - 3.21 million viewers
