Fox canceled 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' to revive Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing'

Fox canceled 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' to revive Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing'”

When ABC cancelled "Last Man Standing" after its sixth season previous year, the show was at the top of its game, with millions of loyal viewers and perched behind only "Modern Family" at the number two ranking among the network's comedy shows. ABC denied it, and instead blamed higher costs. The series was canceled previous year after six seasons on ABC-much to Allen's chagrin-but now it will find new life, with the same original cast. He said, 'Hell yes, I'm excited!' when the news broke.

"['Last Man Standing'] was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings", she said per the Washington Post. "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", he continued.

More: Which network TV series are returning, almost dead or in limbo? Allen will return as will the original cast, including Nancy Travis, Hector Elizondo, Jonathan Adams, Christoph Sanders, Amanda Fuller, and Jordan Masterson. "American Idol" aired on Fox for 15 seasons and after two years off returned this year on ABC. (Ironically, the studio is due to be acquired by Disney).

The revival by Fox comes on the heels of the network canceling three of its current comedies on Thursday - The Last Man on Earth (not to be confused with Last Man Standing), The Mick, and the rather beloved Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is being shopped to other outlets. It was the network's second most-watched comedy, after Modern Family. I'm sure audiences will be curious to see what we look like after all these years.

Notably, a year later, ABC found a hit in its reboot of "Rosanne", starring Roseanne Barr, who is both a supporter of President Trump and plays one on the show.

Don't beat yourself up, that's what your pimp is for, but in spite of Tim Allen's promise never to negotiate with terrorists, even if it does mean his daughter might get away with something, Last Man Standing season 7 will air on Fox, according to Deadline.

ABC placed the fantasy drama Once Upon a Time in the Friday time slot that Last Man Standing once dominated.

Allen, however, said ABC wasn't willing to feature a amusing successful show starring a conservative character. "He is mitigated on the show by a family of women who had a difference of opinions, but [Mike Baxter] was a likable guy and a principled guy about work and ethics and all this stuff, I think".

"Last Man Standing ended too soon and the outcry from the fans has been deafening", said Gary Newman and Dana Walden, chairmen and CEOs at Fox Television Group. It also killed "Lucifer" after three seasons. They put us out to pasture on Friday and we won Friday. Big night for them.
