Up All Night - S1 E2 - Cool Neighbors

A modish British couple move in across the street from the Brinkleys while Ava struggles to connect with the baby.

Comments after the jump.

Not really a whole lot to see but there is one really big problem with this show and it's name is Maya Rudolph. The character is annoying and just doesn't fit at all into the seams of the show. Christina Applegate and Will Arnett are playing regular people acting like buffoons while Rudolph is just playing a flat out self-absorbed idiot. Every scene with her in it ruined this episode which was otherwise perfectly fine if fairly typical mainstream comedy. I'm not sure how they move forward with this load on their backs now though with "Ava" as a main cast member. She needs to be relegated but that would be problematic in itself.

"Up All Night" airs Wednesdays on NBC at 8:00 pm EST.
