The alphabet network has picked up two more episodes of Tim Allen’s new sitcom, Last Man Standing. The order brings the TV show’s first season order to 24 installments.
In November, after Last Man had been on the air for just a few weeks, ABC gave it a full season order. Not long afterward, a new showrunner was named.
On Tuesday nights, Last Man Standing has been averaging a 2.8 in the 18-49 demographic and 9.85 million total viewers. It’s the eighth-highest rated scripted series on the network this season (out of 16 shows) and currently has a “B-” on our ABC network report card.
While the sitcom hasn’t been a big hit for ABC, it’s done far better than Man Up! (cancelled) and newbie Work It (sure to be cancelled soon) and continues to be an anchor in the network’s attempt to create a second night of comedies.
A dozen episodes of Last Man have aired so far, leaving another 12 to go. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian will play herself in an upcoming February sweeps episode.
