<I>Up All Night:</i> New Beginnings

During its first season, Up All Night seemed to revamp itself every few episodes as it tried to strike the right balance between being a domestic comedy about two new parents and a workplace sitcom set at an Oprah-like daytime talk show. In its second season premiere, the show went through one last (I hope) reboot, abandoning the talk show angle once and for all and bringing it all back home, seemingly for good.

Post <i>Modern Family</i>: What Would Happen If All the Parents Left?

After some renegotiation snafus, the adult stars of Modern Family are filing suit to void their contracts. While some may think that without Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and Ed O'Neill, the show could not exist, we find it easy to imagine Modern Family without the primary parents. In fact, there's many different ways to write around their characters:

Up All Night: Baby’s First Year

<i>Up All Night</i>: Baby’s First Year

Just like the adorable baby girl whose birth set the series in motion, it's been fun to watch how Up All Night has grown and changed over the course of its first year of life. When it premiered in September, it was a comedy about how a free-spirited married couple adjusts to the responsibilities of child-rearing. But last night's season finale perfectly illustrated what the show has morphed into since the pilot: a female-driven workplace sitcom that gets more comic mileage out of the adult relationships at the office rather than the parent/child stuff at home. (That the baby's most significant bit of screentime last night came in the post-credits teaser indicates just how much the show's focus has shifted.)
