Tim Allen’s sitcom LAST MAN STANDING has had a wild last year. After getting canceled from ABC, Fox picked up the popular TV show that tends to draw a conservative audience. On Friday evening, LAST MAN STANDING made its debut on the new network and 8 million people watched….
LAST MAN STANDING was Fox’s #1 comedy premiere in at least last seven years, excluding NFL nights. Variety reports, “by comparison, the Season 6 premiere on ABC drew a 1.1 rating and 6 million viewers, while that season as a whole averaged a 1.2 rating and 6.4 million viewers.”
Tim Allen posted on Twitter alluding the exciting things for this season:
