The week the lights went out in Jersey

Catching up on a strange week in TV in the wake of Hurricane Sandy

How's everybody doing? We came through the storm just fine (we were much luckier than many of our neighbors, whose houses were struck by falling trees), but like most everyone in New Jersey, our house has been blacked out for days. I've found at least a temporary place to work that has electricity and internet, but it's been a strange few days, both inside and outside the storm's path.

'Up All Night' to shift to multi-camera sitcom

Christina Applegate series to retool to film in front of a live studio audience, 'Happy Days'-style

"Up All Night" returned for its second season with what seemed like a massive facelift. A sitcom that had once split its time between Christina Applegate's life at work with Maya Rudolph and at home with Will Arnett and their baby instead refocused on the home life, canceling the show-within-the-show (and getting rid of the other characters who worked there), having Applegate replace Arnett as the stay-at-home parent, and introducing Luka Jones' as Applegate's brother and Arnett's partner in a new contracting business.

Compared to what the show is about to do, all those changes amount to little more than getting a little collagen injected into the lips. The real overhaul is just beginning, and it will leave "Up All Night" unrecognizable by the end.
