Fox is busy working out the kinks in its new fall lineup. While some of the network’s new shows are doing quite well, one in particular has not managed to earn the love of a large audience. Thanks to its ratings woes, Fox announced over the weekend that its new Sunday night comedy, Mulaney, has been downsized.
Twenty-five years after Seinfeld debuted, Fox is trying to make history repeat itself with an obvious homage to the ground-breaking NBC sitcom. So. What's the deal with Mulaney? Sadly, the great material behind the throwback can't save it from feeling out of time. And we all know how important timing is for comedy.
Fox has given comedian John Mulaney his very own comedy this fall, but despite appearances on comedy specials and a lengthy tenure as a writer on Saturday Night Live, the world doesn’t know that much about the comedian. So, this week Fox has partnered with Hulu to release “Mulaney An Opening Act Preview Special,” which should give you an idea of who Mulaney is.
Fox has announced their Fall 2014 premiere schedule. Along with bringing back a number of returning shows, the network will debut the highly anticipated Batman prequel series Gotham, murder mystery Gracepoint, John Mulaney's new comedy Mulaney, the hospital-set drama Red Band Society and new reality series Utopia.
At long last, Mulaney finally found a place on the primetime line-up. Last year, NBC passed on the comedy series from Saturday Night Live writer and comedian John Mulaney, but the comedy found new life at Fox, and is set to air on Sunday nights this fall.
Fox announced their 2014-2015 schedule this morning, and in addition to adding some of their anticipated new series -- Gotham included -- the network has made a few notable changes to their primetime line-up, including moving one of their popular live-action comedies to Sunday night and putting a new hour-long series on Tuesday, ahead of their New Girl/Mindy Project comedy block.
