Mulaney and Bob's Burgers Swap Slots

Mulaney Time Slot Change

Fox now will be serving up Bob’s Burgers — and not John Mulaney — on Sundays at 9:30/8:30c.

In the wake of waning ratings for the poorly received Seinfeld-lite sitcom, the network has announced that Mulaney will now air Sundays at 7:30/8:30, occupying Bob’s Burgers‘ time slot — and as such, given football scheduling, won’t return until Nov. 23.

The Emmy-winning Bob’s Burgers meanwhile will christen its new Sundays-at-9:30 home starting this weekend, leading out of a fresh, Thanksgiving-themed episode of Family Guy.

Mulaney premiered in September to 2.3 million total viewers, a 1.0 rating and an average grade of “C-“ from TVLine readers, and has not seen its menial numbers uptick since.

    I’m surprised they haven’t cancelled it yet!

    • Ray says:

      Mulaney was essentially cancelled the day its episode order was cut. There just hasn’t been any official announcement from FOX because they wanted to save face and not have the first cancelation of the season.

  2. Tran says:

    Hope Mulaney gets canceled after its 13 episode run is over.

  3. Jared says:

    I dont get why they just dont cancel Mulaney. Any of Fox’s comedy repeats would do better.

    • Patrick says:

      Outside of Simpsons or Family Guy, no thy wouldn’t. And its too early to run repeats from this year, and previous years are contractually sold to other outlets.

    Isn’t it 7:30/6:30c.

    Sunday’s ratings show EXACTLY what FOX should do on Sundays: bring back Futurama!!!
