FOX Unveils Fall Lineup at 2018 UpFronts In New York

On Monday, the Fox network held its upfront, unveiling trailers for the new shows that will join the network's schedule during the 2018-19 TV season, including an intriguing new drama featuring former "Saved By the Bell" star Mark-Paul Gosselaar, a senior-citizen sitcom set in a retirement home, a new iteration of the Seth MacFarlane-produced "Cosmos" and the return of Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", which is being revived by Fox after ABC cancelled the show previous year.

Allen announced the news last Friday on his official Twitter account, with the Fox network channel picking up the television program. Thankfully for Nine-Nine devotees, NBC soon stepped in and saved that show-though neither Last Man on Earth nor The Mick, which Fox also canceled, have had such luck.

The Fox executives said they are counting on the addition of football on Thursday night, in addition to its Sunday games, to help boost its new and returning shows. And so, due to short orders, the next reboot of "24" will be called "Six.' There will still be seven words you can't say on TV, and President Trump will say them all during the State of the Union".

"Obviously I think everyone took a good hard look at the performance of Roseanne", Walden said. "It did so well and it certainly did remind us that we have a huge iconic comedy star in our Fox family in Tim Allen". Instead, Newman and Walden focused on how young (a half a decade younger than that of ABC; a full decade younger than that of CBS) and social (225 million fans strong) the network is. While it felt like an eternity to desperate fans, Last Man Standing will only have missed one season of TV scheduling, so it doesn't have to do too much rebuilding or reintroducing.

"It's a amusing show and audiences responded to it", he said.

The network has ground to make up in ratings: Fox is averaging 5 million viewers in prime time this season, down 17 percent from 6 million previous year. "Now we get the news from FOX that it's time to get back out on that diamond - hell yes, I'm excited!" "We always wondered how it would do if it was given a better opportunity and prioritized more in terms of a network's agenda".

"I'm sure audiences will be curious to see what we look like after all these years", Allen added in his statement. While Last Man Standing was dropped by ABC and picked up by Fox, Fox dropped the beloved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was in turn picked up by NBC.

"Once we made that decision, it just limited the opportunities we had to schedule "Brooklyn" and ultimately, we decided we just didn't" have room for it.

FOX has five new scripted series - new to its schedule, anyway - plus the return of "Cosmos" on its schedule for 2018-19. And you've gotta give Fox, and specifically Dana and Gary, big credit for listening to these fans. "Well, just goes to show you - a lot can happen in a year".
