Then came ReTool #3, which unraveled the show into oblivion before it could even take effect. NBC decided that ''Up All Night'', which to that point had been done in a single-camera format without a LaughTrack, would switch to a multi-camera format with a StudioAudience because why the hell not. They'd already tried everything else. Some truly nutty ideas were thrown around, such as baby Amy being able to see a portal connecting the single-cam world to the multi-cam world. In the end, they settled for the completely sane concept of having the entire show turn out to be a ShowWithinAShow, and from that point on follow the lives of the fictional actors playing Reagan, Chris, and Ava.[[note]][[http://www.tvguide.com/News/Up-All-Night-Demise-1062227.aspx Seriously,]] [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer we're not making this up.]][[/note]] Somehow, Applegate was unimpressed and jumped ship, followed by Arnett and Rudolph. The show was dead, but it still took several months before NBC acknowledged defeat and canceled the show officially.

* ActorAllusion: Episode 17 has Will Arnett's character make the same chicken sound as when he played [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Gob]].
** It could be a coincidence, but the daughter of Will Arnett's character has the same name as [[Creator/AmyPoehler Will Arnett's wife.]]
** Another episode has Arnett's character give some of his daughter's baby clothes to a friend, then change his mind. His excuse: [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment "I've made a huge mistake."]]
** A huge reference to Will Arnett's [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment most famous role]] is made when Chris meets the dentist who has been hitting on Reagan. He greets him with, "What's up, my brother?" The dentist is played by Tony Hale.
** One episode guest stars Megan Mullally as Shayna, who hosts a talk show rivaling Ava's. Mullally actually did briefly host her own talk show.
** AlanisMorissette guest stars as a former bandmate of Ava's.
** A YouTube "flashback" to the 1990s of Ava fighting with her boyfriend B-Ro in public shows Reagan trying to intervene, and looking remarkably like [[Series/MarriedWithChildren Kelly Bundy]].



* ExecutiveMeddling: [[ReTool Hoo boy.]]



* PlayingAgainstType: Will Arnett playing a loving, caring husband and father is far removed from the [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment selfish]] [[Series/ThirtyRock jerks]] he normally is known to play.

(Not to be confused with the '90s Creator/USANetwork series hosted by GilbertGottfried and Rhonda Shear that presented cheesy [[{{BMovie}} B-Movie]]s mixed in with even cheesier comedy sketches.)

Added DiffLines:

* MindScrew: The third and last planned ReTool would've involved, among other things, an inexplicable shift from single-cam to multi-cam format, baby Amy somehow being able to connect the multi-cam world with the single-cam one in her mind, and the characters in the multi-camera universe ([[ARareSentence Never thought you'd hear that before.]]) being revealed to be [[ShowWithinAShow actors on a show]] with the focus of the real show following their lives. It's almost as if Creator/CharlieKaufman tried to take over.
