Tim Allen’s reborn sitcom, Last Man Standing proved Fox was right to give it a second chance on Friday night after its first episode became the network’s most-watched comedy on any night in seven years.
The show centers on a family of women and a father (played by Allen) who tries to retain his manliness through his job at an outdoor and sporting goods store.
The article goes on to state the following:
ABC, who hosted the sitcom for six seasons, axed it early last year.
Last Man Standing had eight million viewers, a big jump on the six million who tuned in to ABC for the premiere of season six, Variety reported.
According to Variety:
“Last Man Standing” averaged a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 8 million viewers, airing at 8 p.m. 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. In fact, the last time the series drew over 8 million viewers was back in its fourth season, and the last time it drew a 1.8 rating or better was in Season 2. It was also Fox’s most watched comedy on any night in nearly seven years, excluding NFL nights, and was by far the top-rated show of Friday night.
