Curtain comes down on NBC’s ‘Out All Night’

NBC has shut down production on the first-year sitcom “Out All Night” with two episodes remaining out of its total 22-episode order, the network confirmed.

Production sources say the network’s in-house unit, NBC Prods., was seeking to “cut its losses” by halting production on the Patti LaBelle sitcom.

“Night” was abruptly yanked from a new Friday time period — along with Twentieth TV’s “Rhythm & Blues”– after pulling a weak 5.0 rating, 9 share in Nielsen two weeks ago (Daily Variety, Feb. 18).

“Out All Night,” which also starred Morris Chestnut and Duane Martin, premiered initially as part of the Saturday lineup, was shifted to Thursday and ultimately went on hiatus before the recent Friday tryout. Sixteen of the 20 produced episodes have aired. Twentieth already had completed its initial 13 -segment order on “Rhythm and Blues.”
