FOX’s “Last Man Standing” Ratings Go Big

Abcs Last Man Standing Ratings Go Big

FOX’s pickup of the cancelled Tim Allen-led ABC sitcom “Last Man Standing” is looking like a good move with the show’s seventh season premiere drawing in big numbers on Friday night.

The episode averaged a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 8 million viewers in Live+Same Day. To put that in perspective, the previous season averaged a 1.2 rating and 6.4 million viewers per episode and its premiere was lower than that which makes the new season’s numbers amongst the show’s highest.

The premiere was also Fox’s most-watched comedy on any night in nearly seven years, excluding NFL nights, and was easily the top-rated show of Friday night.
