Fox is putting a lot of muscle behind their new comedy Mulaney, even placing it next to Family Guy in the Sunday lineup. Back in June when the network released the first teaser, Twitter exploded with comparisons to Seinfeld and unfortunately I just can’t agree with that. John Mulaney is absolutely hilarious on his own. One of my favorite stand-up routines is his bit about Law & Order and their ridiculous characters (You can listen to it here). Mulaney spent the last four years writing on Saturday Night Live which definitely put him on everyone’s radar. Sadly, I don’t think that’ll be enough, even with the help of Martin Short and SNL alum Nasim Pedrad.
Check out the official trailer and photos from the premiere below and let us know what you think.
Mulaney premieres Sunday, Oct. 5 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
