My favorite show, ‘Last Man Standing’, debuted this week on Fox and all I can say is wow! It was funny as usual with political insights and jabs… but what really knocked me out were the ratings. Sometimes even I’m surprised by something like this.
‘Last Man Standing’ ran Friday night in the same time slot it had when it was on ABC. Right out of the gate, Tim Allen and the gang started making fun of their old network and how the show looked so much better on Fox. Allen said the show must have some really ‘kick-ass’ fans and it does. I’ve been waiting a year for the show to make its triumphant come back and it did not disappoint.
The show was canceled in 2017 on ABC when it was their number two comedy show at the time. The move blindsided Tim Allen and really hurt him. But fans demanded the show be brought back and it found a home on Fox. Two characters have changed… Mandy and little Boyd. But they used humor to cover those changes and the show will go on to be as great as before, with far less censorship which means more laughs.
‘Last Man Standing’ was one of the very few conservative shows out there and it was really the only one I watched. Tim Allen plays a mostly conservative father in the sitcom and now he is free to express his own views. But the show goes out of its ways to play off all views. It has a tremendously large and loyal following among Americans and was on ABC for six years.
Fox took a gamble when ABC dropped the show and it looks like it is paying off. The ratings were fantastic. Fox’s gain is ABC’s loss. ABC was accused of playing politics when they canceled the show. Although they claimed at the time it was production costs, most of America didn’t buy that excuse.
“Last Man Standing” debuted its seventh season on Fox Friday night, with the Tim Allen-led sitcom rocketing past its previous season numbers on ABC.
“Last Man Standing” averaged a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 8 million viewers, airing at 8 p.m. By comparison, the Season 6 premiere on ABC drew a 1.1 rating and 6 million viewers, while that season as a whole averaged a 1.2 rating and 6.4 million viewers. In fact, the last time the series drew over 8 million viewers was back in its fourth season, and the last time it drew a 1.8 rating or better was in Season 2. It was also Fox’s most-watched comedy on any night in nearly seven years, excluding NFL nights, and was by far the top-rated show of Friday night.”
The revival of conservative ‘Last Man Standing’ blew away the revival of the liberal central character and tone of the Trump-bashing ‘Murphy Brown’. ‘Murphy Brown’ went uber-political immediately and brought Hillary Clinton on for a cameo. Tim Allen used humor instead. It’s not hard to figure out why Tim Allen won hands down on this.
From Deadline Hollywood:
“The Season 7 premiere of Last Man Standing on a new network, Fox, drew a 1.8 in adults 18-49 Live+same day rating and 8.0 total viewers. That was well above the series’ most recent Season 6 premiere on ABC in fall 2016 (1.1, 6 million). In fact, this was LMS‘ best demo L+SD delivery since the Season 2 debut in 2012 which marked the comedy’s first outing on Friday after an initial run on Tuesday.
“Despite airing on the slower-trafficked Friday night, LMS topped the Thursday premiere of CBS’ Murphy Brown (1.1, 7.5 million). Like with the huge ratings return of Roseanne last spring, the strong numbers for LMS likely indicate an appetite for shows that provide a different perspective to most fare on TV.
“LMS, the top program on Friday in 18-49, led Fox’s switch from single-camera to multi-camera comedies. Its initial numbers validate the switch, as it was Fox’s most-watched comedy on any night in nearly seven years excluding NFL lead-ins, since October 2011 (The Simpsons, 8.1 million).”
Even though ‘Last Man Standing’ has a right-leaning lead, Tim Allen pointed out to Fox News that the only goal of the series is delivering enjoyable family content, alongside the edgy and memorable moments the show is known for.
Tim Allen: “My comedy has been the same since I’ve been doing it for 33 years and it’s about the ultimate political divide — (between) men and women. I’ve been doing that — and that’s all it’s about. And underneath all of that is that you just don’t get the other side, but you love the other side.”
‘Last Man Standing’ tells the story of a married father of three who tries to maintain his manliness in a world often dominated by women. It was ABC’s second most-watched comedy, after ‘Modern Family’.
Looks like in the comedy wars, Tim Allen is literally getting the last laugh. And I have my favorite show back.

Alyssa Milano Struggles To Believe Jussie Smollett Would Commit MAGA Hate Hoax
Well…it seems whiny Celebrity Alyssa Milano is having a hard time believing that Jussie Smollett would actually fake a hate crime attack, wondering who “could be that hurtful.”
“If that man staged his own attack he is wrong in so many ways. No one could be that hurtful? To stage this? Right?” Alyssa Milano pleaded on Twitter.
“To fuck with all of us by playing into our weaknesses & make it even harder for victims to come forward?! No one could choose to be that hurtful? Right?! RIGHT?”

According to reports over the weekend, Chicago police now believe that Empire actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated an attack on himself by paying two men to beat him.
“Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The sources tell CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement,” tweeted CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz Saturday evening.
Earlier Saturday, Fox 32 Chicago’s Rafer Weigel, citing several police sources, reported Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo — the two Nigerian brothers arrested and later questioned by police about the alleged incident — purchased the rope found around the actor’s neck the night of the alleged attack at an ACE hardware store.
CBS Chicago’s Charlie De Mar reports at least one of the brothers bought the rope at Craft Beaver hardware store the weekend of January 25th. The rope was purchased at the direction of Smollett, De Mar, citing sources, added.
Hoaxster Smollett previously claimed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago in January. The “attackers” also allegedly shouted “This is MAGA country!” during the attack.
When the news originally broke of the alleged attack, many Hollywood celebrities used it to cast blame on President Trump and his supporters.
“Heartbroken and furious reading about the attack on JussieSmollett. I want Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell,” actor Billy Eichner said last month.

Faking a hate crime, faking a lynching, in order to frame a group of people you don’t agree with, should be charged as a hate crime! This is how mentally ill the left is. It’s time for lawsuits. Apologies don’t mean anything so we should stop asking for them. These mentally ill folks are hell-bent on destroying innocent lives.
I saw this meme someone had posted recently. Which explains this so well.
“Only in 2019, would a gay black actor, pay Nigerians $4k a piece, to buy a rope, throw it around his neck and beat him up in order to blame white folks. Happy Black History Month!”
Sure explains the mentally ill left well. How sick you have to be to pay people to beat you up so you can blame it on white people. Because you hate white people that bad..
Welcome to the racist left,folks!
Malia Obama’s Secret Facebook Account Reveals How Much She Hates Trump
Can you imagine being brought up with so much hate at such a young age?
Well..it seems Malia Obama’s secret Facebook page has reportedly been found, and it divulges her true feelings about President Donald Trump.
Malia Obama described President Trump as ‘evil’ on her secret Facebook page where she exchanges messages friends including Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Daily Mail revealed.
The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.
Its cover photograph is of a row of pink post-it notes which read: ‘Donald Trump is President,’ ‘This is not normal’, ‘Donald Trump is evil’ and ‘Don’t be complacent.’
Among the comments written beneath the photograph is one by Biden’s 20-year-old granddaughter Finnegan.
She said: ‘Never saw this. I like it.’
There were some other political activity on the page, including a petition demanding action after the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival left 58 people dead.
Malia is attending Harvard and had moved into freshman dorms in August 2017, a few months after she posted it on her profile.
She had been living in New York City in the months beforehand while interning at The Weinstein Company. Weinstein offered Malia an internship as a favor to her father, Barack Obama.
There are some other personal posts and pictures as well, showing the travels Malia took during the year before starting Harvard University.

Amazing how she calls President Trump “evil”….yet she was interning for Weinstein who has sexually abused many women in Hollywood. The left never ceases to amaze me. And nothing is scarier than when radical leftists have children. They raise them to be hateful human beings. These kids are subject to full-court-press Leftist propaganda 24/7.
Malia Obama is another example of a brainless liberal. Once you’ve declared someone “evil” there are no barriers for anything you do to them. No more analysis or intelligent evaluations to be made.
She has long since joined the ranks of “useless idiots.”
Funny… She doesn’t want to talk about her daddy who financed terror via Iran to the tune of $150 billion dollars.
She doesn’t know the definition of evil. The apple sure doesn’t fall very far from the tree.. this poor soul is just about as dumb as her racist father and mother.
