Watch Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' New Teaser

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.

The Fox network on Monday unveiled a fall lineup that features the revival of Tim Allen's sitcom "Last Man Standing", more NFL football and two new sitcoms.

"We always wondered how it would do if it was prioritized more", she said. 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.

Fox executives are confident they made the right call in bringing back Tim Allen's comedy Last Man Standing.

"I'm not sure that cancellation really had anything to do with politics", he said. He also said Allen's character, Mike Baxter, is a political centrist and that the show's stories are not a partisan platform. But it sounds like the fan push to renew the show wasn't really a big factor for NBC, since they were already on the same page.

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. It wasn't really about that. However, he didn't believe the lasting success behind "Last Man Standing" was exclusively based on Baxter's conservative values. "And a lot of that social sentiment that you see results in online discussions about shows, I think, is part of what drives the success of the show". I just don't think the show ends up delving into it very deeply.


Shows canceled by Fox are "The Last Man on Earth", "New Girl", "The Mick", "Lucifer" and "The Exorcist". "Ultimately, we decided we just didn't have room for it. we're really happy its found a new home".

The trailer release followed Fox's upfront presentation before advertisers in NY. Though the NBC show's rating gave them pause this year, Fox's original interest in the show didn't have anything to do with Roseanne.

In a statement sent to Fox News on Friday, Allen said he was excited to begin filming Season 3. "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".

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.

Looks like we're about to find out. "It's also one of the few comedies in recent years that does a robust global number, and it has a syndication upside, which a lot of shows don't have anymore". It feels like it goes along shows like A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Superstore, and The Good Place.
