Up All Night: Mommy’s Alright, Daddy’s Alright

<i>Up All Night</i>: Mommy’s Alright, Daddy’s Alright

Full disclosure: My wife and I had our second child in January, so we're very familiar with the situation new parents Reagan (Christina Applegate) and Chris (Will Arnett) find themselves in at the top of the new NBC sitcom, Up All Night, which premiered last night. In real life, we have argued over which one of us was up longer with the baby, we have let slip an inappropriate curse word or two (or three, or four, or five) around the kid, and we have dealt with the difficulty of balancing work life and family life. Watching all of those moments played out onscreen, it was almost as if we were watching versions of ourselves from several months ago, before the crawling, the babbling and the sleeping through the night (that's right Reagan and Chris... it does happen). And, for us at least, that authenticity made the show that much funnier. To be honest, I have no idea how Up All Night will play with non-parents; all I know is that the pilot made us laugh harder than any other new fall comedy besides New Girl.

Tommy Lee Jones is pretty busy this summer, you know, fighting aliens and all with Will Smith. I'm surprised he has time for this.
