Up All Night “Thanksgiving” Season 2 Episode 7 airs Thursday November 15 on NBC (8:30-9 p.m. ET).
Episode Synopsis When Reagan (Christina Applegate) causes Chris (Will Arnett) to miss his favorite holiday—the annual Thanksgiving with his family back in Maryland— she’s determined to give him an even better Thanksgiving at home. Meanwhile, Ava (Maya Rudolph) and Walter (guest star Sean Hayes) go on a quest to do charity work on Thanksgiving, only to find they’re needed in the most unlikely place. Elsewhere, Scott (Luka Jones) tries to put together a Thanksgiving dinner with his friend Paul (guest star Will Sasso) and some other divorced dads.
Show Summary: Christina Applegate (“Samantha Who?”) stars as Reagan Brinkley: loving wife, successful career woman, life of the party and, most recently, mom. Determined not to compromise her career or cool reputation to the clichés of motherhood, Reagan adjusts to life with a baby and returns to work with the support of her stay-at-home husband, Chris (Will Arnett, “Arrested Development”).
As Reagan and Chris figure out their new life, self-doubt, sleep deprivation and the pressure of today’s parenting protocols rattle their confidence. What’s more, the endless needs of Reagan’s boss, ambitious but vulnerable talk-show host Ava (Maya Rudolph, “Saturday Night Live,” “Bridesmaids”), threaten to throw Reagan off balance.
