Fox Cancels Mulaney

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (March 8, 2015) -- Fox has cancelled the comedy, Mulaney, after one season, writes Deadline.com.

The show's cancellation is no surprise considering it debuted last October with just slightly more than two million viewers and never improved on that lowly sum.

TV Series Finale says the the show's now final episode reached around one million viewers, a terrible number for a broadcast network show in prime time.

Starring John Mulaney as a stand-up comic looking to break through to stardom, Mulaney was blasted by critics as being neither funny nor interesting. The show also starred comedy vets Martin Short and Elliot Gould.

TV Series Finale notes that Mulaney started as a NBC pilot, but Fox picked it up after the peacock network passed. It would appear that, in this case, NBC knew what it was doing when it came to a primetime comedy.
