betweenthebanter April 13, 2017 Share April 13, 2017 Since Fox probably won't promote this well, because its Fox, starting on May 9th 2-episodes of Brooklyn 99 will air each Tuesday. One episode airing during the time it airs now and then one directly following it. This will continue until its season finale on May 23rd. I don't know how I feel about this. I'm happy that we will be getting two episodes of B99 per night, but the ratings already came back weak so double episodes are most likely going to hurt the show even more. Fox renewed The Mick because it is the closest thing Fox has had to a new comedy success in the last two years, which is not saying much because Fox has continuously been failing with its comedies. Also, Fox was (and continues to be) pretty enthusiastic about the show. Prior to its premiere, the promotion they gave The Mick probably doubled (at least) the amount of promotion they've given all of their returning comedies combined this season. Anyways, Fox screwed over B99, Lucifer, and Gotham this season (all shows that did pretty well, by Fox's standards, before they went on long hiatuses) because they were trying to find hits in new shows this season. The main problem is that since Fox got really lucky with Empire years ago, they haven't learned how to develop a good strategy and it negatively effects most/all of the shows on its network. 1 Link to comment
