I love NCIS and watch it faithfully every Tuesday night. “Last Man Standing” and “Man Up” didn’t stand a chance (ratings wise) running up against NCIS. However, I was able to watch “Man Up” using Comcast’s On Demand service and thought it was hysterical! In fact, I thought it was much funnier than “Last Man Standing” which relies on a laugh track. It’s too bad that the show has been (or will be) canceled. I really feel that ABC should give both shows a chance in a new time slot.

Man Up! is a high quality quirky comedy show that deserves a higher rating. Recent similar shows before it; The Good Guys, Breaking In, etc suffered the same fate. If it was aired on the same lineup as Modern Family and Happy Endings, this show would’ve been picked up for a second season. Shame on money gobbling network execs; they gotta do what they gotta do; and listening to the voice of real fans out there is not one of them.

Man Up is totally getting a bad rap here. It’s a Freakin, Funny as Hell show. When Kenny gets going off about something, It’s priceless, pure improve comedy . Personally I think it would due better for ratings, if it was on after Modern family. But that’s just my opinion. I think both shows appeal to simuliar demographics.

You’re right that both “Man Up” and “Modern Family” are similar — they are both extremely funny shows that do not rely on laugh tracks. ABC really should try to keep this show by moving it to a new night and time.
I think both “Man Up” and “Last Man Standing” would do very well on Wednesday nights. They’ll never find a decent-sized audience on Tuesday nights running against the CBS line-up (most especially my favorite, “NCIS”).

The show is very funny. It’s just a shame it has to suffer from it’s proximity to a show that appeals to an entirely different audience.

Man Up! Is awesome. People are reading into it too much. It’s just there for a laugh. Nothing cutting edge, but at least it’s new faces! I love the show personally. Go Man Up!

I love this show! I do think it appeals more to a female audience. But it does drive home a point (in a humorous way) about how male & female relationships have changed so much in the past 40 years.

Contrary to what PR spinmeisters love to say, demo numbers are only “important” when you fail to deliver a big overall audience (and thus need spin to pretend the show’s doing well).

Thus overall audience is the main number and should be showcased accordingly.

The networks make advertisers pay for all viewers. They don’t give out some of them for free (they never did but really can’t afford to now).

Rena Moretti ยป You’ve got it backwards. They typically use a large audience to put a positive spin when a show gets poor demo ratings. In network tv, advertisers will pay more for a show with a big demo and a low total audience than a small demo and a bigger total audience. That’s why networks covet the demo.

Utter crap. Kill it now. Last Man Standing will suffer from having it near the same time slot. Heck, the entire network will lose ratings from this stinker.
