This time, the sitcom airs on Fox!
It was definitely one of the greatest victories in the history of television. Two years ago when ABC decided to kill its best watched comedy LAST MAN STANDING after six years of running (during which the sitcom continuously kept winning Friday night ratings each week and each year, even though it received almost no marketing from the network), for rather obvious political reasons, more than half a million of Last Man's most faithful fans have demanded its return in an online petition, and now the sitcom is returning to the small screens: new network, Fox, same time, Friday evenings, starting September 28th! Although people who never watched it like to unjustly call it conservative, LAST MAN
The beloved cast returns September 28th to the small screens!
STANDING is everything but. The most wholesome family show on the television has always put focus on a dialogue between opposing opinions, ages and classes, ending each of its love filled episodes with a message of tolerance and compromise. Message of peace wrapped in decent, always fresh and mature, humour while tackling the current social, political and all other issues. So here's a big hooray for the return of television's most beloved multi camera comedy!

Have never watched this show.

DEZMOND said...

you missed the world! It is the most wholesome sitcom ever after Home Improvement! Always thought it is exactly what the world needs now as it teaches us tolerance , compromise and coexistence.

Dez, I love love this show...hilarious...I especially enjoyed the episode with the bear.

We are ever so excited for the return of LMS! It was foolish of them to cancel it in the first place, so I’m glad Fox picked it back up for us loyal fans. I’m also glad most of the cast is back, but especially Kyle. He was our favorite character.

DEZMOND said...

one thing that makes it so unique is that the fans of show love it dearly, and when you check out LastMan Standing pages on social networks, you will see their fans are mostly filled with love and are very polite and kind, which is highly unusual for today's society, don't you think? That is why it hurts me when I hear people trashing the sitcom they never even cared to watch.
The bear episode was epic!

DEZMOND said...

Don't you just like Kyle's new hairdo? They finally cut it off :) Love him and Ryan too.

The Angry Lurker said...

Loved this series!

DEZMOND said...

we can love it again, Fran!
Can't believe you're back in the blogosphere :)

Theresa Mahoney said...

Yes, he looks very nice with the new hairdo.

DEZMOND said...

I'm so looking forward to the new Mandy as well, I did not like her character before, maybe now I will. I love it that they decided to not dye her hair.

Theresa Mahoney said...

It will probably take me a minute to warm up to new Mandy like it did with new Kristen. We'll have to see if we like new Boyd too.

DEZMOND said...

I like the new Boyd already, I think he will be my new fave as the actors was really lovely in some other series. Unlike the first kid who was a bit lost, this lil' guy really has a warm charisma, and I can't wait to see his scenes and dialogues with Tim. Tim really needs a favourite grandson, methinks. In other news, I hear they are killing Roseanne with opiod overdose in Conners, ABC really is the most disgusting, primitive bunch of retards ever. No respect whatsoever for anyone or anything. Hope that one flops faster than Titanic.
