A couple of interesting TV-related tidbits were announced today. First up, good/strange news for Up All Night fans. NBC has extended the comedy’s season two order to 16 episodes, but the network is switching the show’s format to multi-camera. Per Deadline, when the Christina Applegate and Will Arnett-fronted show returns in the spring it will be with a live audience and laugh track in tow. It’s an odd move halfway through the show’s second season, but it’s not unprecedented. Happy Days was a single-camera series until it switched to three cameras in its third season.

The future of Adult Swim, Cartoon Network’s weird older brother, just got a little bit clearer, as the cable network has announced a bevy of new pilots that will compete for a schedule spot in 2012-2013. The most prominent of the bunch are an untitled animated continuation of the pot-fueled adventures of Harold & Kumar and Rick & Morty, a comedy from Community creator, Dan Harmon. The former is being scripted by franchise writers (and directors of Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay) Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg and will see stars John Cho and Kal Penn giving voice to animated versions of themselves. Rick & Morty, meanwhile, follows the adventures of an inventor and his dimwitted grandson. Hit the jump for more.
