Fox defends axing Brooklyn Nine-Nine and reviving Last Man Standing

Fox made room for Allen's comedy and more, canceling a total of five shows including "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", "The Last Man on Earth", "The Mick", "Lucifer" and "The Exorcist".

Walden's partner, Gary Newman, also spoke up to downplay one reporter's suggestion that FOX was aiming for a "tonal shift" while stressing that, ultimately, it's all about the ratings.

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

Amid the enormous quantities of TV renewal and cancellation news hitting the airwaves, FOX announced its revival of Last Man Standing.

Many fans of "Last Man Standing" speculated at the time that ABC axed the series over its politics, a rumor that ABC vehemently denied at the time. If you want to start planning what you'll be watching each night this fall, check out the chart for the night-by-night schedule below.

Initially airing on ABC, "Last Man Standing" centered on the character Mike Baxter, played by Allen, a family man with three daughters trying to maintain his "manliness" in a world increasingly dominated by women.

Walden emphasized that "Last Man" was a self-starter for ABC during its six-season run with little promotional support.

As for the Last Man Standing pickup, the CEOs revealed that they had been trying to bring the comedy to Fox since previous year. It's a really amusing show. "It had nothing to do with "Roseanne" that we were interested in the show in the first place". In other words, a revived Tim Allen may really be the new revived Roseanne Barr, and things are gonna be messy. "We always felt like ABC didn't really prioritize Last Man Standing", she said. 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.

John Amodeo, NN6JA, has been a co-executive producer, producer, or supervising producer of the comedy and was instrumental in Allen's getting his ham radio license in 2014; more than 2 dozen members of the crew were also inspired by the show's Amateur Radio component to get licensed.

"I'm not sure I think that [ABC's] cancellation had anything to do with politics", he said.

"Tim's personal politics aren't really a big feature of the show", Newman said of "Last Man". "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".
