Fox Doubles Down on Familiar Funny Faces After Axing 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

The primary difference is that the show now will appear on the Fox Network.

Others, however, including The Daily Banter, argued that the decision to cancel Allen's show had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with good business practices.

LA to Vegas is the only single-camera comedy left standing at the network after a bloodbath of cuts last week, including the cancellation of The Mick, The Last Man on Earth, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

She said "Last Man Standing", which averaged around 8.5 million viewers in its last season on ABC, was never heavily promoted on that network.

"Excited?" Allen said in a statement released by Fox Friday.

"Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years", Allen tweeted at the time.

Newman spoke more about what prompted ABC's cancellation, chalking it up to an unaccommodating schedule - a decision that was less political and "if anything, it had something more to do with vertical integration". This strategy would work best with a non-serialized show that doesn't have much of a barrier to entry for new viewers. This one's produced by Charlie Day of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia".

Initially airing on ABC, "Last Man Standing" centered on the character Mike Baxter, played by Allen, a family man with three daughters trying to maintain his "manliness" in a world increasingly dominated by women. But comic book fans will have something to tide them over - the network's X-Men drama The Gifted is returning, but moving to Tuesday nights before Lethal Weapon (with new lead Seann William Scott).

Wednesday will pair music-oriented dramas "Empire" at 8 p.m. and "Star" at 9. Walden added that ABC had not, "for whatever reason", made Allen's series a priority, which may be a reference to its relegation to a Friday night time slot. Following the season, Seth MacFarlane's sci-fi send-up "The Orville" will return for a second season on that night. "It's performed best in our Sunday night lineup, and we made a decision this year, which was, we wanted to give Bob's Burgers, the Emmy-winning, huge performer for us, an opportunity to have a plum time period and to really grow". The series is based on a series of books by Justin Cronin.

And this, for "Gotham" fans: Fox announced a new, and final, 13-episode season. The reality is, the fans of Last Man Standing wouldn't leave this alone.

Meanwhile, Fox also picked up a pair of mid-season dramas: "The Passage", based on the Justin Cronin triolgy, about "a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a risky virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race;" Mark-Paul Gosselaar stars; and "Proven Innocent", about "an underdog criminal defense firm led by a fierce and uncompromising lawyer", with Rachelle Lefevre, Vincent Kartheiser, Russell Hornsby, Brian d'Arcy James and Nikki M. James.
