'Last Man Standing' gets second life at Fox

'Last Man Standing' gets second life at Fox

"We always felt like, for whatever reason, ABC didn't really prioritize Last Man Standing", Walden pointed out, again citing the 8.5 million viewers the show drew despite "little promotion".

Indeed, the power of nostalgia is strong, and Roseanne has emerged as the most-watched show of the season.

"Last Man Standing" faced a controversial end after ABC dropped it despite high ratings, which sparked speculation that it was because the show's lead was politically conservative.

Fox announced last Friday that "Last Man Standing" would return as part of its fall line-up for the 2018-19 season, with cast members Allen, Nancy Travis, Jonathan Adams, Amanda Fuller, Christoph Sanders and Jordan Masterson also set to return. "And we have been talking to Tim through the year", she said.

Fox's upfront event - when it will present its new shows to potential advertisers - will take place Monday afternoon at New York City's Beacon Theatre.

"Last Man Standing" averaged 8.3 million viewers for ABC during the 2016-2017.

Worryingly, the majority of these requests come from primary schools, which the NSPCC say do not have the funding or services to support their students.

In other words, the Fox execs are moving the blame from themselves and saying that if we want to blame anyone for the initial cancellation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, blame Roseanne, Bob's Burgers and the NFL.

Nearly exactly a year after its cancellation, following petitions and cries from fans to bring it back, Allen thanked everyone for their support and announced that the show would air on Fox starting in the fall of 2018. "We always wondered how it would do if it were. prioritized more".

Whatever the case, FOX may also reap some benefits from the notoriety wielded by the conservative Tim Allen, as well as the fact that most Tim Allen characters are not-so-loosely based upon Tim Allen. "Is there any other show in history that has not only retained its audience but has beaten most other comedies of its type that has been canceled as abruptly?" Tim's personal politics really aren't a big feature of the show... "[His character] Mike Baxter is a centrist [and] doesn't have extreme political views".

"And the show never really delves deeply into political viewers. We really just felt it was a amusing show, the audience responded to it and there was an opportunity on our schedule particularly... to put a great comedy that would attract a broad audience". "From time to time, there may be a moment on the show that deals with current politics, but it doesn't feel like a soapbox for any particular point of view".

"And a fist pump, ouch, for Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans but for making the bold move to bring "Last Man Standing" back. We just think it's a really amusing show that the audience responded to".
