'Last Man Standing' launches Fox's Friday night comedy scenes: Every show on the network's 2018-2019 schedule
Speaking of comedies, perhaps the biggest, boldest decision taken by the network this season was to revive Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing'
After what felt like a wild, wild TV series cancellation spree, Fox has finally come up with its Fall 2018-2019 schedule — a first glimpse of which clearly indicates that the network is going all out to tap in the competition and make the most with its line-up of new and revived shows.
Although, the network is yet to land a hit in the drama genre that can bring in the numbers like Empire, but its mix of comedy and NFL nights is sure to appeal to most of the viewers.
Speaking of comedies, perhaps the biggest, boldest decision that taken by the network this season was to revive Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing', a politically-driven show with a strong conservative leaning. After a six-season run on ABC, the sitcom was canceled amidst major controversies, only to be revived by Fox for Friday nights at 8 pm EST.
Explaining the reasons behind the revival, Fox TV executive Gary Newman said, “Last year when ‘Last Man Standing’ was canceled, we really looked for an opportunity to move it to our schedule and we just didn’t have the right show to pair it with, we didn’t have the right opportunity for it.”
However, motivated by the ratings garnered by the latest political reboot, Roseanne, Newman added, "We saw an opportunity to pair those two shows together on Friday night [where] 'Last Man Standing' will lead into new multicam 'The Cool Kids'."
But Friday night additions are not the only change viewers need to gear up for. Fox has revamped its Tuesday schedule to add "The Gifted" and "Lethal Weapon", while older dramas like "Star" and "Empire" hold the fort on Wednesday.
However, the most happening slot in the entire week is being taken over by "Thursday Night Football Pregame Show".
Besides the vast slew of TV programs, the network is also reserving certain releases for midseason, including freshman series 'The Passage' and 'Proven Innocent', and the fifth and the final season of 'Gotham'.
