'Last Man Standing' renewed by Fox after being canceled by ABC

Last Man Standing

It performed best in our Sunday night lineup. During Fox's up-fronts, Chairmen and CEO of Fox Television Group Dana Walden explained why the network made a decision to pick up the Tim Allen comedy a year after its cancellation.

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. And then later on in the conversation: Why'd you rescue Last Man Standing?

Walden said the opportunity to revive "Last Man Standing" was a no-brainer.

Last Man Standing was initially cancelled by ABC after the 2016-2017 season.

It nearly seemed that the unbelievable run of quite possibly the funniest show on television would end without a fight from anyone but the actors and the fans - at least until NBC stepped in and picked the show up.

Fox execs always felt, she said, that ABC, "for whatever reason" had not prioritized the comedy series, which was produced at Fox. Yet as it turns out - and likely to the surprise of few - FOX was inspired to make their (somewhat controversial) decision after watching ABC's recent windfall with reviving Roseanne.

On yearly basis, net loss of the bank rose to Rs 4,436.37 crore from a loss of Rs 1,850.67 crore in fiscal ended March 2017. He further said the banks which are out of the PCA ambit have a crucial role to play in the economy.

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 agenda. "We were emboldened by Roseanne". "Roseanne" certainly confirmed that".

Allen, a conservative who has voiced his support for Trump, starred as Mike Baxter, who is also politically conservative on the show. He said the new version was so successful, "I'm sure at least one exec at NBC says, 'We can't bring back 'The Cosby Show, ' right?" Fans spent the next year lobbying for its return, and Fox emerged as an obvious landing spot because it was produced by 20th Century Fox Television. "Tim's personal politics aren't a big feature on the show. [Mike Baxter] doesn't have extreme political views". It wasn't really about that. "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". However, he didn't believe the lasting success behind "Last Man Standing" was exclusively based on Baxter's conservative values. Other cancellations include "The Last Man on Earth", "The Mick", "Lucifer" and "The Exorcist". It really limited the opportunities to schedule Brooklyn. "We put it into development, and made a commitment to it right way". It was a really compressed time when it was canceled at the very end in May.

It wasn't just conservatives that were praising the show's return, either.

The news of "Last Man Standing" being resurrected by Fox came just days after Allen teased a possible reboot of his series on social media.

Fox executives were also asked if Allen's politics were seen as a potential benefit. "I've missed my Baxter family", Fuller wrote. Fox says it hopes broader-based comedies on Friday help keep some of Thursday night's football fans tuned to the network.
