    Any chance this show could return with new episodes?

  2. Mikael says:

    It would’ve been better on any channel besides “family friendly” ABC. They toned down the B too much.

  3. Jen says:

    So, are these different than the episodes that are already on Netflix?

    It seems lately ABC has been putting on the best sitcoms but they always end up canceling them. This show Happy Ending and Trophy Wife should all be on the air still. But somehow Tim Allen’s show is still on the air

      Leave Tim Allen alone. He’s a Disney legend.

      I agree. They had “Better with You” on during the 2010-2011 season and it was such a great show with a cast that had good chemistry and they cancelled it. I like “Last Man Standing” but they have had way better shows on ABC. I still think “The Middle” is the MOST underrated sitcom on TV today.

      Nailed it!

      Opinions on quality aside, it’s because Last Man Standing actually gets good ratings, especially for Fridays. It’s no secret that shows which air on Fridays are given some leniency when networks look at the ratings, so that helps LMS’s case. But it also had slightly better demo ratings than Trophy Wife and exceedingly better ratings by the millions despite airing on Fridays vs. TW’s Tuesday slot. Trophy Wife’s series averages were horrible, putting it as the lowest-rated sitcom for ABC’s 2013-14 TV season.

      ABC has been trying for years to get sitcoms on Tuesdays and they always fail, it just doesn’t stick for some reason. It resulted in them cancelling Cougar Town, Happy Endings, Trophy Wife and Don’t Trust the B. Aside from Trophy Wife, all the others were doing just fine on Wednesdays, but ABC wanted more sitcoms so they shoved those to Tuesdays.

      Trophy Wife and Don’t Trust the B were also casualties of horrible titles. It was either TVline or TV Guide that did a poll last fall and most people said they wouldn’t watch Trophy Wife merely for the title. They probably should have learned a lesson from Cougar Town to not name a show after something generally viewed as negative. I know many people were also turned off by Don’t Trust the B’s Kristen Ritter for being, well, a B. It would have likely done better on a cable network like FX which specializes in not-so-nice main characters. Regardless, those reasons clearly played a big part in the fact that both never had good ratings.

      So you should be mad at ABC, who led the “top four” networks in most sitcoms cancelled during the 2013-14 TV season with a total of 6. Not to mention they cancelled a total of 5 during the 2012-13 season.

      • Mad at ABC for cancelling shows that no one watched? They did screw up Don’t Trust the B, airing episodes out of order and that pissed me off, but I can’t fault a network for cancelling a barely watched show, even if I love said show…and I did.

      • Fred says:

        I honestly find it hard to believe that people would decide to not watch a show because of its title. In my opinion, titles like ‘Cougar Town’, ‘Trophy Wife’ and ‘Don’t Trust the B—- In Apartment 23′ are far more interesting and intriguing than. ‘Modern Family’ or ‘The Middle’ which are incredibly basic. Well, I guess basic and generic shows have basic and generic titles!

    • Ray says:

      They cave to the bible thumpers. They kill all the goo TV shows to forced their savage cult beliefs on everyone else instead of just watching something else.

    That show was funny and inventive, with a great cast.

    YESSS!!!! Finally, someone pulled their head out of their ass and realized that this gem needs to continue! I hope its available on AppleTV for all us expats, working overseas. :)
