Fox is keeping struggling comedy Mulaney on its air but is giving it a timeslot downgrade on Sunday while promoting Bob’s Burgers. Mulaney will move from its current 9:30 p.m. timeslot down to 7:30 p.m., meaning it won’t air in the weeks Fox has the NFL doubleheader game. Its first appearance in the earlier time period will be Nov. 23.
Fox has trimmed the order for new comedy series Mulaney by three episodes, from 16 to 13. The network made the call after two airings, as the series just wrapped filming Episode 13 and was about to go into production on Episode 14.
