For a series already mired in turmoil behind the scenes over two season, 'Up All Night' gave what very likely could prove the series' death knell last week, as series star Christina Applegate quit before the show shifted production toward a three-camera sitcom. At the time, NBC reportedly considered re-casting Applegate's role, or further re-tooling the show to work without Reagan Brinkley, but now the network seems to have a clearer plan. Rather than shooting five episodes in the new three-camera format, the series will shoot only one more episode, but will the series continue without Applegate?

Fans of NBC's 'Up All Night' well know that the series has endured a troubled road to success, re-tooling its premise for a second season and most recently making the decision to shift from a single-camera to a three-camera studio audience sitcom, losing series creator Emily Spivey in the process. That change has now claimed yet another casualty, and it's a big one. Series lead and upcoming 'Anchorman 2' star Christina Applegate has decided to leave the series entirely, but will NBC replace her or cut their losses altogether?
'Anchorman 2' just got a lot funnier (if that's even possible). Kristen Wiig has been confirmed as joining the cast for the sequel and Christina Applegate has confirmed her return as well. Take us to pleasure town!
We've all loved Christina Applegate since she played the lovable airhead Kelly Bundy on 'Married with Children,' and the actress has been making us laugh ever since. In today's Way Back When, we take a look back at Applegate's career before she hit the big time.
One of the bevy of bad-but-so-fun-to-watch movies making the rounds on Netflix is 'The Sweetest Thing' starring Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, Selma Blair and Thomas Jane. Aside from not being able to stop singing "You're to big to fit in here, to big to fit in here..." on repeat, we couldn't stop thinking about those moments where Christina Applegate looked almost exactly like Jennifer Aniston circa her run on 'Friends.'
After the disaster that was last week's Daniel Craig episode, it's great to have Christina Applegate hosting this week's 'SNL.' With her background in television and her experience hosting the show before, we should be in for a more competent -- and confident -- outing. So how did she do?
Alright, so 'Saturday Night Live' had a bit of a misfire this past weekend, as the majority of Daniel Craig's sketches fell flat. They don't train super-spies to be funny, after all. But while the NBC sketch comedy series' 38th season may have broken its hot streak after Seth MacFarlane and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 'Up All Night' and former 'Married with Children' star Christina Applegate is here to get us back on track. And it only took 19 years!
Though only two episodes deep into its 38th season, 'Saturday Night Live' has already produced some classics, be they 'Family Guy' funnyman (and newly-minted Oscars host) Seth MacFarlane and his dead-on Ryan Lochte impression, to Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his turn as the most interesting man in the world's son. But with Daniel Craig due to host this Saturday, who will next take the reigns? Why, Christina Applegate and Bruno Mars, of course, but not in the way you'd think!
Though the Channel Four news team has been reunited in trailer, and all four leads are signed on, there was no word if Christina Applegate's Veronica Corningstone was scheduled to appear in 'Anchorman 2.' Worry no more, she's now confirmed to return to the series.
Will Ferrell appeared on the ‘Conan’ show in full Ron Burgundy gear to announce that Paramount had agreed to terms on an ‘Anchorman’ sequel. Precious few details were shared, however, before Burgundy blew into his flute and danced off into the night. When will the sequel reach theaters? And what might it be about? Thankfully, writer/director Adam McKay’s shedding a little more light on the situation.
