"Last Man Standing" Moving to Fox Network

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

Walden said ABC's recent success with the revived "Roseanne" was a reminder that in Allen, Fox has a "huge comedy star" in its fold who also has the potential to appeal to a broad audience.

Fox is ending its famous Tuesday night comedy block after eight years and is replacing it with a sitcom lineup on Friday nights that will be anchored by Tim Allen's Last Man Standing - freshly revived after being canceled by ABC in 2017. "We always felt like for whatever reason, ABC didn't really prioritise Last Man Standing".

Samberg's apologies, it seems, have been enough for Bob Greenblatt, who said in an NBC conference call Sunday, "We're thrilled to have [Brooklyn Nine-Nine.] We think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it ever fit into the Fox brand of comedy".

"So we were emboldened by the performance of "Roseanne" and that certainly made us think that this was a really good opportunity..."

"I'm not sure that cancellation really had anything to do with politics", he said.

"Excited?" Allen said in a statement released by Fox Friday. The show never really delved deeply into political views.

The network's schedule, announced Monday, is its first since parent company 21st Century Fox announced that it would sell its TV and movie production assets to the Walt Disney Co.

She also revealed that the choice, surprisingly, "had nothing to do with Roseanne". However, he didn't believe the lasting success behind "Last Man Standing" was exclusively based on Baxter's conservative values.

Greenblatt said it was great to see that the fans were as outraged as they were by Fox's B99 cancellation.

"That fan base identities or appeals to them that Tim has his particular political viewpoints. From time to time, there may be a moment on the show that deals with current politics, but it doesn't feel like a soapbox for any particular point of view". The reality is, the fans of Last Man Standing wouldn't leave this alone. "Ultimately we decided we just didn't have room for it and were trying we're really happy its found a new home".

Whatever the case, FOX may also reap some benefits from the notoriety wielded by the conservative Tim Allen, as well as the fact that most Tim Allen characters are not-so-loosely based upon Tim Allen. "Ultimately, we felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year".

"And a fist pump, ouch, for Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans but for making the bold move to bring "Last Man Standing" back".
