Nick Cannon to recur on NBC's 'Up All Night'

Nick Cannon is strutting his stuff all over the Peacock: The America’s Got Talent host has now signed on as a recurring cast member of the new NBC comedy Up All Night, the network confirmed today. (TV Guide first reported the news.) Cannon will play Calvin, a spirited talk show emcee whose popularity irks co-host Ava (Maya Rudolph).  In addition, Jennifer Hall (Nip/TuckCSI: Miami) will recur as Missy, Ava’s unconfident assistant. Up All Night, which debuts Sept. 14, also stars Christina Applegate and Will Arnett as new parents, with Applegate’s character, Reagan, serving as Ava’s producer.

    The more this show moves away from the new parenting thing, the more promising it sounds.

    • Summer

      THIS. Yes. I agree. I hope it does well, though. I love Applegate.

      • Kathy Gee

        Give Mr. Mariah Carey a chance.

        I can’t wait to hear more of his faux-street dialect.

        I hate to say it but I wish Will Arnett would just do a spin-off of his Gob Bluth character.

        I hear that. I get stuck listening to his radio countdown show on the weekends because of my kids and he come across as so phoney-sounding. I bet he had to get a dialet coach to help him sound more “street” to appeal to teens. How sad.

    How much do I have to pay to get Nick Cannon off my tv?

    • jen

      I’ll go in on that with you.

  • Bendo

    Wow. My interest in this show dropped like a thousand point with that d-bag involved.

  • Peter

    This looks like it could be NBC’s version of Modern Family.

    • Pash

      Yea only funny.

  • Justin

    I agree with Bendo, my interest in this show just dropped immensely. Nick Cannon? Really? There were no other actors available?

    • melissa

      I know right. They couldn’t get Blair Underwood…yum or Taye Diggs….double yum

  • mick

    nick cannon when do you sleep?

    • UGH

      He’s the African-American Seacrest!

      • Thad

        Cannon, out!! No seriously Cannon, leave.

  • Lisa

    I was really thinking of watching this when it started, but I cannot stand Nick Cannon. Count me out.

    • jen

      I know, me, too. Argh, so disappointed.

  • Adam

    Seriously, Applegate and Arnett don’t deserve this. Cannon is a talentless d-bag and has never been even remotely funny. Sigh. And to think I was semi looking forward to this show. Oh well, on to the next thing.

  • Dave

    I’m really looking forward to this show, but the addition of Nick Cannon is a disappointment. Can’t stand him. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say his involvement came about because of NBC and not because of the producers/creators of the show.

  • jason

    “Nick Cannon to recur”? You make him sound like a disease! :)

  • Rho

    I can understand if people don’t think he’s talented & are tired of seeing him everywhere but has he done anything bad enough to warrant being called a d-bag? I would think that term would be reserved for someone who cheated on their spouse, got busted for DUI or drugs, made homophobic and/or racial comments, etc. From what I’ve read/heard Nick Cannon is a decent guy. IMO there’s a big difference between not liking someone & saying they’re a d-bag.

  • Karen

    Crap I was really looking forward to this show. Now I don’t know if I can watch it if he’s going to be on. Not a smart move at all.

  • TW

    How is it that he still continues to get work? Did the studio execs or producers or whoever had this idea to cast him on the show not see how terrible he was in Underclassman or Love Don’t Cost a Thing.

    • Stef

      I’m pretty sure his wife calls in some favors.

  • Brad H

    I’m pretty sure that the world, as well as Nick Cannon, discovered that he is a no-talent hack.

  • stevo

    Wow another black actor on a show! I wished they just keep them off of network tv already. I mean why cant BET and VH1 just give him his own show. Wow I love how white people dominate tv.

    • P. Burk

      You are so stupid. I am white but I believe there are many talented African American actors on TV and many more that should be. Steveo, it’s a good thing breathing is spontaneous otherwise you would suffocate.

    • Teeshaa

      All i gotta say is thats a sad comment stevo nothing else nawwt gunna waste much talkin to yu .
