'Last Man Standing' gets second life at Fox

While it felt like an eternity to desperate fans, Last Man Standing will only have missed one season of TV scheduling, so it doesn't have to do too much rebuilding or reintroducing.

The studio has yet to give an explanation for dropping popular series like Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which has found a new home at NBC), so a lot is expected of these new shows to win the trust of fans and viewers before they decide to cancel their subscriptions.

What will Fox's network look like come fall?

Walden said that after a five-season run by "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", the network didn't have the right place to put it. With our increased investment in football, we're going to use the powerful platform of the NFL to launch our new comedies.

Fox announced late last week that it was picking up the Tim Allen-helmed comedy after ABC cancelled it past year, and the move had much to do with "Roseanne" as it did to do with its star. Assembling the Fox Sports team and the National Football League on Fox talent roster (last seen on this stage awkwardly rapping a year earlier), the gang boasted a 40 percent share of regular-season National Football League for the upcoming season.

Some fans may be drawn to the family sitcom because of Allen's personal political views, but they "aren't really a big feature of the show", Fox Television Group executive Gary Newman said. "We were emboldened by the response we saw on 'Roseanne.' We saw it as an opportunity to pair those two shows together on Friday night". "Now we get the news from FOX that it's time to get back out on that diamond - hell yes, I'm excited", said Allen in a statement announcing the revival. While a hero and a victim to some, her bold and bullish tactics garner her some enemies - one of whom will do anything to see her go down for a crime we know she did not commit.

Don't forget to share this post on your Facebook wall and with your Twitter followers! And I just remember, and I told my cast, where we left off: Sixth inning, bases loaded, last man standing at bat, and I'm pointing to that left field, man.

"[The show] drew 8.5 million viewers every Friday night with very little promotion".

Tim Allen, meanwhile, logged an appearance at Fox's presentation Monday afternoon at New York's Beacon Theatre.

Then it was Allen's - the newest, old Fox star - turn to address the advertisers and press.

"We have an opportunity to chart a new course for broadcast television", Newman added from stage, with Walden interjecting: "Positioning our network for the future and not tethering it to the past - and spoiler alert: it's really bright".

"When I heard the offer to create more episodes of 'Last Man Standing, ' I did a fist pump so hard I threw my back out", he wrote. I don't know what happened. We'll keep you updated with premiere dates and details as they are released!

"Last Man Standing" is set to return this fall.
