Fox Trims ‘Mulaney’ to 13 Episodes

It looks like there will be a little less “Mulaney” than originally planned.

Fox has cut the new comedy from 16 episodes to 13. The call came as the series wrapped production on its 13th episode, before it started its 14th.

A rep for the Lorne Michaels-produced show clarified that “Mulaney” will stay in its Sunday timeslot at 9:30 p.m., where it follows “Family Guy.” Fox ordered the series to six episodes a year ago, adding 10 more episodes in May.

“Mulaney” got off to a slow start in its premiere, garnering 2.3 million viewers overall and a 1.0 in the 18-to-49 demographic, and was mostly panned by critics. Its second episode, however, saw a 10% improvement in the ratings. Only two episodes have aired thus far.

Fox still has a few half-hour series waiting to debut, including Will Forte comedy “Last Man on Earth,” animated “Bordertown” and “Weird Loners.”
