Is Fox's Mulaney Fall TV's Biggest Disappointment?

The pilot for Fox's Mulaney features one of the show's two stand-up comedian characters struggling to write a joke that sets up what the comic has already decided will be his catchphrase punchline.

In the same way, the series — created by and starring John Mulaney, a former Saturday Night Live writer and one of the sharpest, funniest stand-up comedians working today — has all the ingredients needed to create laughs, but it just can't seem to find a consistent way to deliver them.

Fall TV: Check out all the must-see new shows

Not surprisingly, the best parts of the early episodes feature Mulaney doing his stand-up routine for the live audience in front of his darkened apartment set. (Yes, it's a weird setting, but go with it.) But when the action shifts...read more

Weekend TV: Homeland, Survivor's Remorse, Mulaney

If last season (and the last parts of the season before) left you wanting to run away from Showtime's Homeland, the good news is that it's safe to come back. The show may never again achieve the intensely suspenseful and emotional heights of year one, with its psychosexual tango between Carrie and the enigmatic war hero/possible terrorist tool Brody, and I'm still not convinced that basket-case analyst Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) should be posted anywhere hotter than Antarctica. But this Emmy-winning international spy thriller suddenly feels much more topical and urgent again in its fourth season, where the only remaining remnant of the Brody storyline is the infant daughter — a ginger baby, naturally (hauntingly Damian Lewis in aspect) — whom Carrie bore after witnessing the father's cruel fate.

Top Videos: Britney Spears Joins Tinder, Ellen Does "Anaconda"

This week, Jimmy Fallon helped Britney Spears sign up for Tinder, and also participated in a Tonight Show edition of Family Feud that went completely off the rails. Former Saturday Night Live cast member Bill Hader shared a hilarious Casey Kasem sketch that tragically never made it to air, and Ellen DeGeneres released her own version of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" video. Elsewhere, viewers also got their first taste of Utopia and its amazing theme song, as well as a very special Jeff Goldblum rendition of the Jurassic Park theme song. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Mulaney Video: Watch John Mulaney's Stand-Up in New Special An Opening Act

Jerry Seinfeld. Bill Cosby. Tim Allen. Ray Romano. So many of TV's biggest comedy stars got their start as stand-ups before making the leap to the small screen, and now John Mulaney is hoping to follow in their very funny footsteps.

Premiering Sunday, Oct. 5 at 9:30/8:30c on Fox, Mulaney centers on a stand-up comic who's trying to... read more

Critic's Notebook: Fox at TCA

Gotham City to the rescue? Fox certainly hopes Gotham, its dark and stylish noir set in the corrupt, broken pre-Batman metropolis, will revive the fortunes of a network undergoing one of its most significant leadership transitions. (The architect of this fall's schedule, Kevin Reilly, stepped down in late May, and Dana Walden and Gary Newman, the Fox Studio heads who will take over network oversight in a more streamlined operation, won't start their new positions until the end of the month.)

The Gotham panel was the first and most impressive new-series presentation on Fox's day at the TCA press tour. (For more Fox news, go here.) With its revisionist twist on Batman mythology as it spills out origin stories featuring various supervillains-to-be, Gotham is the buzziest show on Fox's fall slate — airing on Mondays alongside breakout hit Sleepy Hollow won't hurt — but it's not without risk. read more

Nasim Pedrad Talks Departing SNL for Mulaney: "At Some Point You Have to Leave"

When Saturday Night Live returns this fall, it will be without a very familiar face.

No, we're not talking about the recently departed Brooks Wheelan, Noël Wells or John Milhiser — it's OK, no one really remembers what they did on the sketch show, either — but Nasim Pedrad, who is leaving after five years to star on... read more
