You say this as if S1 was beginning to end pure quality comedy. From ep to ep this show kept morphing in it's format and concept until what we have now only keeping parts of the premise
By the end of S1 the show was basically became children alone in a candy store/amusement park except the children are adult weirdos and the store/park is America/the world and the show maintains Phil's perspective. The main theme that is only kept up is ppl in solitude, alone, going stir crazy, etc.
FOX aint afraid, they just want money. They've done limited series before. If anything they probably thought they were giving us something short with the season only being like 12 eps. If they had it their way it would've been 22. If you want short American runs watch shows that got canceled after one season.
