Fox moved The Mick to Tuesdays at 9:00 pm ET this season, as a lead-in to Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the show has done well in the new time slot. The Season 2 premiere in September drew 2.8 million viewers and 0.9 demo rating, besting its numbers for the Season 1 finale.

Jimenez, who has appeared on Raising Hope and Last Man Standing, portrays Alba, the Pemberton’s maid.
