Up All Night “First Birthday” Episode 17


Up All Night “First Birthday” Episode 17 airs Thursday February 23 on NBC (8-8:30 p.m. ET).

Episode Synopsis: A moment of weakness with his uncomfortably enthusiastic neighbors leads Chris (Will Arnett) to agree to host a joint first birthday party for Amy, and Reagan (Christina Applegate) to accuse him of being a pushover. Ava (Maya Rudolph) takes it upon herself to take the birthday party to the next level, while Nancy (guest star Molly Shannon) sees this as an opportunity to look for a man. Jennifer Hall also stars.

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.
