Watch Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' New Teaser

Watch Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' New Teaser

In a set-up to make people think he was talking about "This is Us", Meyers said that NBC is "home to the No. 1 drama on television, a show that each week gives us twists and turns, heartbreaking reveals and, this season, the departure of a once-beloved character".

There was an outcry from fans after "Last Man Standing" was canceled in 2017, and many blamed the fact that Allen is a conservative-leaning actor who attended President Donald Trump's inauguration.

The new Fox comedies are "Rel" and "The Cool Kids".

"Rel Howery is really a breakout comic star", said Gary Newman, a co-chairman and co-CEO of the Fox Television Group.

Fox canceled "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", which was rescued by NBC.

"We felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year", Walden said.

"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.

Read, who was appointed to his current post four years ago, previously ran Vodafone's Africa, Middle East and Pacific region. Last week, Vodafone paid €18.4bn to buy Liberty Global's cable TV and broadband networks in Germany and Eastern Europe.

Another show that was recently given a second chance was Last Man Standing, which stars sitcom veteran, Tim Allen.

"Once we made that decision, it just limited the opportunities we had to schedule "Brooklyn" and ultimately, we decided we just didn't" have room for it. Walden added that ABC had not, "for whatever reason", made Allen's series a priority, which may be a reference to its relegation to a Friday night time slot. Fox hopes for a boost next season with the addition of pro football on Thursday nights.

Walden noted that a comedy like Last Man Standing has an easier "point of entry" for viewers than a serialized comedy like Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

During its original run on ABC, Last Man Standing was nominated for two Emmys.

"He feels very much like a Fox character, and he and Jerrod (Carmichael) produced a really amusing and appealing pilot". It had nothing to do with Roseanne that we were interested in the first place.

Fox also announced early Monday that Last Man Standing will air on Fridays at 8 p.m. ET, the same time it aired on ABC for its last five seasons there. We always wondered how it would do if it was given a better opportunity and prioritized more in terms of a network's agenda.

Allen tweeted news of the Fox reboot on May 11. "Tim's personal politics are not a big feature of the show and if you were to talk to Time he would say [his character] is a centrist and the show never delved deeply into politics". "We think its a amusing show and audience responded to it... and we thought there was an opportunity there for us particularly after adding Thursday Night Football".
