Sitcoms have to be seriously good to get my attention at the end of the day. The kids are asleep and the house is quiet, so if I’m going to watch some telly instead of calling it a night, then it had better be worth my time…and crack me up. Make me laugh, or I’m out, people.
I’m a huge SNL fan, especially the old-school SNL. Up All Night creator Emily Spivey and Maya Rudolph bring the SNL craziness to the tube. It’s hot…and smart, with clever humor and sharp writing guaranteed to please parents and non-parents alike. Christina Applegate is utterly charming as Reagan, and Will Arnett brings his signature goofy gallantry as Chris. But the best part? Watching the couple navigate their way through parenthood with all of its spills and spit-ups. Literally. The actors get it, and it shows.
