Last Man Standing is standing for one last season
October 14th, 2020 under Tim Allen. [ Comments: none ]


Fox announced today that Last Man Standing’s ninth season will be its last one. The sitcom aired six seasons on ABC before it was canceled, took a year off, and was picked up by Fox for three more.

“I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of LAST MAN STANDING,” remarked series star and executive producer Tim Allen. “I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work. As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done. We had all considered to end the show after last season, but together with FOX, we decided to add a year so we could produce a full season to create the gentle and fun goodbye. I’m looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.”

LMS had a great run on two different networks, survived two recasts of two daughters, and made a lot of jokes about two maybe three presidencies. I, for one, am sad to see it go. Besides being funny as hell, they did an excellent job of tackling both sides of many political and hot topic issues.

The final season will debut in January.

Tim Allen and Richard Karn reunite for a home improvement competition show

It has been 21 years since Home Improvement ended, and two of the show’s stars are getting together to build a new show. History announced that they greenlit a home improvement competition show with Tim Allen and Richard Karn. Just like the ’90s sitcom, Allen will star, and Karn will host.

What is the concept behind Assembly Required? It is being described as it “will spotlight the best and brightest builders from across the country, at their home workshops, as they compete to breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing. This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build it better.” Then they added, “In each episode, Allen and Karn will also dive into the unique history around these items to celebrate the men and women who crafted them, and the techniques used.”

“Let’s face it — we’re living in a throwaway society,” said Tim Allen. “We buy, break, replace… rinse and repeat. Whatever happened to repair and rebuild? There are some people who unfriend, unfollow and dispose of anything that offends, annoys or breaks – so I’ve created a show to remind people of the satisfaction and pride that comes from rebuilding something on their own.”

Assembly Required is slated to debut next year.

Tim Allen responds to himself trending on Twitter
July 30th, 2020 under Not Dead, Tim Allen. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday, for some reason, Tim Allen was trending on Twitter. That normally means he is dead. However, he is still alive. Therefore, we still don’t know why he was trending. Thus, the actor made his guess about what happened. He posted the above photo, and wrote, “Ok, I figured it out. Some nosey neighbor saw what I was having for lunch and ‘figured’ I was going to die.”

There you have it. The Last Man Standing is still standing. Although, after eating those hot dogs he might be sitting on the porcelain throne.

BTW If he is trying to prove to us that he is still alive, shouldn’t he post a photo holding with today’s newspaper showing us his face. You know, like that kidnapped people do in movies and on television shows?

The Resident and Last Man Standing are still standing at Fox!
May 19th, 2020 under Fox, Tim Allen. [ Comments: none ]


Even though Fox announced their 2020-2021 season last week, they were not done scheduling their lineup that was affected by the coronavirus pandemic. What do they need to fix that problem? They need residents and an outdoorsman to help them get through it.

That’s right, they picked up The Resident for a fourth season, and Last Man Standing for a third with the network. The Tim Allen sitcom is the little show that can. LMS did six seasons on ABC, took a year off, and reemerged on Fox.

It will be interesting to see how LMS will resume production of their show when they are finally allowed to film again. It is one of the few shows that tapes in front of a live audience. Will they be able to do that again when they are given the go-ahead? Way too early to tell.

When it comes to The Resident, it will probably be one of the first shows back at work. They film out of Atlanta, Georgia, and that state is much more lax with the lockdown than California and NY. I am also curious to see how many stories they will be doing on COVID-19 next season. I would love to see them take on the CDC since they are both in the same city. I am rooting for Chastain Memorial to win.

Are you as happy as I am that both shows will be back?

UPDATE 2: I am beginning to wonder if push comes to shove, will Fox turn Last Man Standing into an animated show. You know, since it is the only live-action sitcom left on their air. That is because they canceled Outmatched with Jason Biggs and Maggie Lawson today. I am bummed about that because it grew on me.

You know, since Lawson is show killer (none of her shows have lasted more than a season), Peacock should pick up a revival of Psych. At least she had one show she didn’t kill, and we want back.

BTWF: Tim Allen for K-Mart

Before Tim Allen would have problems putting up Christmas lights on Home Improvement, he got them right thanks to Sears. He looks the same now as he did when he was 33 on that 1986 ad.
