Fox Doubles Down on Familiar Funny Faces After Axing 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

Last Man Standing was dropped by ABC after six seasons

"Obviously I think everyone took a good hard look at the performance of 'Roseanne, '" Dana Walden, chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group, told Entertainment Weekly. The show is expected to air at 8 p.m. when it finally returns after more than a year off the air.

Besides Last Man Standing, which will once again air on Fridays, new Fox fall shows include The Cool Kids, a comedy produced by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day and starring David Alan Grier, Martin Mull, Leslie Jordan, and Vicki Lawrence as the rule-breaking residents of a retirement community; and Rel, a comedy produced by Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show) and starring Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, The Carmichael Show), as a man who becomes a long-distance father after his wife has an affair with his barber. A year ago, ABC axed "Last Man Standing", which had attracted more than 8.3 million viewers.

On the decision to cancel Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Walden said, "It was based on a variety of factors".

The "Roseanne" reboot - which, similarly to "Last Man Standing", features a politically conservative lead - exploded onto the television scene with a whopping 15 million viewers tuning in to the show. He said the new version was so successful, "I'm sure at least one exec at NBC says, 'We can't bring back 'The Cosby Show, ' right?"

Redmi S2 India to be launched on June 7
The vivo V9 has regained the two spots it lost last time around and is back in sixth, just ahead of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 . After launching the Redmi S2 smartphone in China , Xiaomi looks all set to introduce the handset in the Indian market.

"Tim's personal politics really aren't a big feature of the show", Newman said. "We think its a amusing show and audience responded to it... and we thought there was an opportunity there for us particularly after adding Thursday Night Football".

Initially airing on ABC, "Last Man Standing" centered on the character Mike Baxter, played by Allen, a family man with three daughters trying to maintain his "manliness" in a world increasingly dominated by women. However, he didn't believe the lasting success behind "Last Man Standing" was exclusively based on Baxter's conservative values. "From time to time, there may be a moment in the show that deals with current politics, but it doesn't feel like a soapbox".

The half-hour series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and will anchor a new Friday night comedy block in the network's 2018 fall schedule. "It had nothing to do with Roseanne that we were interested in the show in the first place". "We didn't have the right opportunity".

In a statement sent to Fox News on Friday, Allen said he was "excited" to begin filming Season 7. "It's the fans! I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show". During this week's Fox Upfront presentations, network heads Dana Walden and Gary Newman spoke about the surprise revival and cancellations.

Looks like we're about to find out. The adaptation of Justin Cronin's book trilogy has been in the works for years, and at one time was going to be a movie directed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes).

In addition, the network said it will mount a live production of "Rent" in January, while "Cosmos" - the much-praised Seth MacFarlane reboot of the Carl Sagan classic - will return with a new edition entitled "Cosmos: Possible Worlds".

"There's certain things in life you just know have reached their end-including the mayonnaise in the green room", a beaming Allen quipped onstage.

'Informal' meet with Putin
The two leaders would also discuss their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters, the ministry added. Modi will meet Putin for the BRICS summit in South Africa and again in Argentina for the G-20 summit.
