To no surprise, Mulaney has been cancelled after one season. According to Deadline, Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden has confirmed that they’ve pulled the plug on the series.
Mulaney follows a rising stand-up comic John Mulaney (Mulaney) who’s trying to take his career to the next level. He’s both helped and hindered by his friends and mentors. The rest of the cast includes Martin Short, Nasim Pedrad, Seaton Smith, Zack Pearlman, and Elliott Gould.
The sitcom had a poor start in the ratings on October 5th with a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.3 million viewers. Most of the later episodes drew even worse numbers, often much worse. The January 25th installment registered a series low with a 0.4 in the demo and 1.03 million.
Mulaney began as an NBC pilot but when they passed, FOX picked up the sitcom with a six episode commitment. FOX later ordered 10 more episodes. In October, after two dismal airings, FOX reduced the episode order to 13 installments.
The series finale aired on February 15th and drew a 0.4 demo rating with 1.14 million viewers.
