NBC Offers Up Early Online Screenings of ‘Up All Night’ and ‘Whitney’

Whitney NBCIt seems the “watch it before it airs” experiment we saw with Fox’s New Girl and the CW’s Secret Circle is becoming a trend. After a few of their new series got decent ratings but didn’t premiere as they’d hoped, NBC is offering up another chance to get hooked on a few of their more promising shows: Up All Night and Whitney.

With the help of Yahoo!, NBC will stream the second episodes from both series beginning in the morning on Tuesday, Sept. 27. The Sept. 28 episode of Up All Night introduces Will Forte as Chris’ (Will Arnett) new best bud, and the romantic problems are flying. Chris and Reagan (Christina Applegate) are having trouble getting their fire back and Ava (Maya Rudolph) takes advice from Reagan, but when it leads to a breakup, she blames her trusty employee for her problems.

Whitney will officially air on Sept. 29, and the episode will feature Whitney (Whitney Cummings) and her longterm boyfriend (Chris D’Elia) working to keep their relationship lively. After last week’s role play disaster, they head out on a “real date” — even going home to separate apartments at the end of the night. Something tells us this isn’t going to go well — just like last week.

Whitney airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m ET/PT and Up All Night airs Wenesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
