Last Man Standing Is Likely To Be Renewed

Last Man Standing’s premiere rating on its return to Fox last week was the network’s second highest scripted rating of premiere week and just a tenth behind Empire’s, and it was on a Friday.

While there were a number of weak rookie premieres last week, none were so bad as to merit an immediate prediction of likely to be canceled. Stay tuned.
