Why Fox Revived Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing,' in Their Words

Fox adds 3 new sitcoms to fall lineup, including 'Last Man Standing' reboot

Fox Revived 'Last Man Standing' Because They Were “Emboldened by Roseanne”

Thankfully for Nine-Nine devotees, NBC soon stepped in and saved that show-though neither Last Man on Earth nor The Mick, which Fox also canceled, have had such luck.

"Obviously everyone took a good hard look at the performance of [that show]".

While "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was canceled by Fox, it did pick up Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", which was canceled by ABC in May 2016 despite its high ratings.

The network was also asked about reviving the conservative-leaning traditional sitcom Last Man Standing, which ran for years on ABC until being axed last year.

The Air Accident Investigation Unit has confirmed it is investigating the circumstances of the crash. The plane crashed near Mount Lucas shortly before 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon, May 13.

The first question reporters had for Fox executives after they unveiled their new fall schedule on Monday morning: Why'd you cancel Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

For what it's worth, Fox chairman Dana Walden said that she and her colleagues are "really happy" Nine-Nine has already found a new home.

Fox scheduled the comedy in the Friday night lineup, claiming that they "were emboldened by Roseanne", and nothing more.

The "Roseanne" reboot - which, similarly to "Last Man Standing", features a politically conservative lead - exploded onto the television scene with a whopping 15 million viewers tuning in to the show.

Goals from Jamie Vardy , Riyad Mahrez and Kelechi Iheanacho had put the Foxes into a 3-1 lead by the 47th minute at Wembley. Vardy then made it 4-4 as Mahrez timed his pass perfectly and Vardy smashed home his 20th goal of the PL season in style.

"Once we made the decision (about Friday) it limited the opportunities we had to schedule 'Brooklyn".

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. All the while, titular star Roseanne Barr's been tweeting inflammatory political opinions, but FOX executives have insisted (during a conference call transcribed by Hollywood Reporter) that they made their Last Man Standing decision based exclusively upon ratings potential, not politics.

"Last Man Standing" tells the story of a married father of three who tries to maintain his manliness in a world often dominated by women. The new season will reveal previously uncharted realms, including lost worlds and worlds to come, and those that we may one day inhabit in a thrilling future we can still have. It was ABC's second most-watched comedy after "Modern Family".

"Excited?", said Allen in a statement via the network. We always wondered how it would do if it was given a better opportunity and prioritized more in terms of a network's marketing agenda. "I said, 'Look, I don't know". "It's the fans! I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show". And you've gotta give Fox, and specifically Dana and Gary, big credit for listening to these fans.

The midseason for Fox will feature a live January production of "Rent", and two new dramas, medical thriller "The Passage", with Mark-Paul Gosselaar, and "Proven" Innocent, a legal series about wrongful convictions. "It's gonna be a better show because of all you people that did this and I just hope we".
