John Mulaney has reflected on FOX’s one-and-done cancellation of his show in a chat with Vulture:
Did you know the show was getting canceled at that point?
In February? Yes. It was canceled. It hadn’t been announced, but it was. Long before.
Was it a relief?
No. Not at first. There’s momentary relief in not having to run a network show seven days a week. Momentary. But not really. It was very frustrating and disappointing not being able to go back to work with everyone. It was like on a Friday. I had a table-read Monday with some guest roles I was so excited about, and a script another writer and I had worked on all week. The tea leaves were pointing there for sure, but the moment it happened, it was more frustration that I wasn’t going to be able to go back and do it.
