John Mulaney's new Fox sitcom premiered last night, and unfortunately the overnight ratings are just as bad as the reviews. According to Variety, the series premiere drew the lowest score of every fall series premiere this year with just 2.3 million viewers — just over 50% of its Family Guy-lead in, which itself was down 50% from last week's Simpsons/Family Guy crossover premiere. Compared to Mulaney, Fox's other comedies did notably better and at least broke the 3 million mark — The Simpsons (4.1M), Bob's Burgers (3.2M), Family Guy (3.7M), and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (3.3M) — so hopefully Mulaney finds a way to rebound next week before getting canceled despite its 16-episode order by Fox.
ugh it was so bad, idgi. he's such a good stand-up!
