The NBC comedy slaughter continues, as another pair has been tossed in the garbage. Up All Night and Guys With Kids have joined 1600 Penn and Whitney in the dumpster as NBC cleans out its comedy stash in preparation for next season.
Guys With Kids was an attempt to put NBC back in the multi-camera comedy game, but it didn't pan out. That's one season and done for the series about some guys who had kids. Hey, at least Anthony Anderson can do something better now.
As for Up All Night, well, that one was just a total f'ing disaster. Even with a cast that included Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph, the comedy imploded thanks to creative differences behind the scenes. NBC even considered turning the show into a multi-camera comedy in the middle of its season. Good riddance, Up All Night. Thanks for setting your talented cast free!
NBC hasn't yet made a decision on Community, and probably won't say anything until after tonight's season finale. And all these other comedies getting canned only increases the show's chances at renewal. But then again, this is NBC, so who knows?
