A Daily Guide to Notable Shows by Ray Rahman

9:30-10PM Fox

Mulaney

Former SNL writer John Mulaney's sitcom is neither the new Seinfeld NBC hoped it would be when they greenlit the original pilot nor the disastrous nonstarter a lot of people assumed it was after NBC passed. Even in the rough world of comedy debuts, the premiere is weak, mostly because it has to unpack its too-busy premise: Mulaney plays a struggling stand-up with a pair of roommates (Seaton Smith and Nasim Pedrad) and a new job scribbling jokes for game-show host Lou Cannon (Martin Short). But by its third episode, the show is confident enough to make you think it might, as Seinfeld did, survive its rocky start. C+ — Kyle Anderson
