What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, The Last Man on Earth follows Phil Tandy Miller (Will Forte). In the year 2020, after a lethal virus sweeps the earth, this average guy originally believes he is humanity’s last hope. Eventually, he comes into contact with other survivors. Among them are his wife, optimistic grammar aficionado Carol Pilbasian (Kristen Schaal). Her goal is to repopulate the planet. Phil also meets up with the stern Melissa Chartres (January Jones), cheerful Todd (Mel Rodriguez), southern wino Gail (Mary Steenburgen), and Aussie Erica (Cleopatra Coleman).
Season Three Ratings
The third season of The Last Man on Earth averaged a 0.89 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.12 million viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 23% in the demo and down by 23% in terms of average total viewers. Learn how The Last Man on Earth stacks up against the other FOX TV shows.
With low ratings, The Last Man on Earth has been ripe for the picking for quite awhile but, year after year, it’s escaped my grasp. The numbers have dropped again this year. At the end of this season, the Last Man on Earth series will have 49 episodes and that’s not enough for much of a syndication package. My suspicion is that FOX will renew this show for a fourth season but they could easily cancel it if they feel they have better new comedies in the pipeline.
5/10/17 update: FOX has renewed The Last Man on Earth for a fourth season. Details here.
