'Last Man Standing' Revival Brought on by 'Roseanne' Success

Last Man Standing

Samberg, star of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", appeared onstage at NBC's presentation to express enthusiasm about NBC picking up the show after it was cancelled by Fox. "We love this show, those are great creators, it's a phenomenal cast". Ultimately we felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year.

The Tim Allen-led family comedy series "Last Man Standing" will be returning to television for a new season, a year after its surprise cancellation.

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

Series not returning include the police comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", which was canceled after five seasons and picked up by NBC; the post-apocalyptic comedy "The Last Man on Earth", which ran for four seasons; the fantasy police procedural "Lucifer", which ran for three seasons; the horror drama "The Exorcist", which ran for two seasons; and the comedy "The Mick", which ran for two seasons.

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

Still, Walden stressed that the success of "Roseanne" wasn't the sole factor for giving Allen, 64, the green light.

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. Closing out Sunday nights will be the freshman multi-camera comedy Rel, inspired by the life of Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Insecure, The Carmichael Show). It's a really amusing show ...

Once done, you'll simply look for the red Voice Remote button throughout the app to perform a voice search or command. You'll see a popup in the app alerting you to the presence of voice remote when it's available on your account.

Among those business reasons - "Last Man Standing" was produced for ABC by 20th Century Fox Television, and network ownership plays a large role in programming decision.

A follow-up question was asked about why they would cancel Brooklyn Nine-Nine and renew Last Man Standing, and the answer was that Brooklyn Nine-Nine had more hard point of entry than Last Man Standing and that Last Man Standing was averaging more than double the viewers of Brooklyn Nine-Nine week in and week out. 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.

"On "LA to Vegas" we're just trying to make a determination about whether we have a place that would enable that show to grow", Walden said. "We were emboldened by Roseanne".

Gary Newman, chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group, revealed that despite rumors, he didn't believe "Last Man Standing" was canceled over Allen's political views. Tim's personal politics really aren't a big feature of the show ...

The cancelation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine by Fox sent shockwaves across the internet, as fans of the incredible comedy series took to the (virtual) streets in demand of its renewal.

"It's a amusing show and audiences responded to it", he explained simply, saying now is the time to bring it back, after a season of dormancy, Fox having added Thursday Night Football to its arsenal.
