Fox Was 'Emboldened' to Revive 'Last Man Standing' After 'Roseanne' Reboot Exploded

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

Hot on the news that it would be reviving ABC's long-finished comedy "Last Man Standing", Fox wasted no time giving the show a spot in its weekly lineup as well as a teaser trailer for Season 7 at its Upfront event Monday.

In addition, the network said it will mount a live production of "Rent" in January, while "Cosmos" - the much-praised Seth MacFarlane reboot of the Carl Sagan classic - will return with a new edition entitled "Cosmos: Possible Worlds". We've been talking to Tim throughout the year.

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.

That's why it's not good that our global players let themselves be manipulated for his electoral campaign. "It certainly hasn't helped the DFB's integration efforts".

BACK FOR MORE: "9-1-1", "Empire", "Star", "Family Guy", "The Four: Battle for Stardom", "The Gifted", "Gotham", "Hell's Kitchen", "The Orville", "The Resident", "The Passage", "Proven Innocent", "The Simpsons", "So You Think You Can Dance", "Beat Shazam", "Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell & Back", "Love Connection", "Masterchef", "Masterchef Junior" and "Showtime at the Apollo". "So yeah, we were emboldened, I would say, by the performance of Roseanne". "We always wondered how it would do if it was given a better opportunity and prioritized more in terms of a network's agenda".

Others, however, including The Daily Banter, argued that the decision to cancel Allen's show had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with good business practices. "We tried to move Last Man Standing over previous year when ABC decided not to move forward", Walden continued.

Walden also revealed that they tried to move Last Man Standing over to Fox when the series was canceled in 2017. "Oh, shit, I said 'ass'". That rumor proved to be true.

GONERS: "New Girl", "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"(moving to NBC), "The Exorcist", "Last Man on Earth", "Life Sentence" and "Lucifer". 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.

The plan over at Fox, executives explained, is to use Thursday night football to lead into their Friday comedy lineup, which will include Last Man Standing and new series The Cool Kids, which are both multi-camera comedies. He previously stated that his show was cancelled by ABC because it was too "dangerous", politically speaking, and he had always wanted his character to be more like Archie Bunker of All In The Family fame. "Scheduling 'Brooklyn' would have prevented us from launching something new". "We really just felt it was a amusing show, the audience responded to it and there was an opportunity on our schedule particularly ... to put a great comedy that would attract a broad audience". We're really happy, though, that it's found a new home. Let us know in the comments down below!
