Fox Cuts ‘Mulaney’ Season Order from 16 to 13 Episodes

By

After bad ratings and bad reviews, here’s some more bad news for Mulaney: THR reports that Fox has wrapped production on the freshman sitcom early and cut its season order down from 16 to 13 episodes, but for now there are no plans to move it from the 9:30pm Sunday night time slot. While Mulaney’s ratings fared poorly during its series premiere earlier this month, its second episode saw a 10% increase thanks in part to its Family Guy lead-in – a sign of hope that Fox is counting on. According to THR, Will Forte’s midseason sitcom Last Man on Earth will likely take Mulaney’s time slot if it doesn’t continue to improve; check out the very patriotic trailer for Forte’s show here.
