Among those business reasons - "Last Man Standing" was produced for ABC by 20th Century Fox Television, and network ownership plays a large role in programming decision. "Now we get the news from Fox that it's time to get back out on that diamond - hell yes, I'm excited!" he added. Gotham will also be held until the winter after being picked up for a fifth and final season over the weekend.
Fox reportedly planned to rescue "Last Man Standing" from its surprising cancellation past year, but they could not find the right schedule for the sitcom.
Aside from Allen, other original cast members also signed up for the sitcom's revival. They will air at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Monday. It was the network's second most-watched comedy, after "Modern Family", a release from Fox said.
"We're really pleased with how "The X-Files" did this past season", Thorn said. It's based on the life of Lil Rel Howery, who stars as a Chicago dad who finds out his wife is having an affair, and must rebuild his life as a single father, following a divorce.
Co-chair Gary Newman also argued that Allen's personal politics were never "a big feature of the show", which he said "never delved deeply" into current events.
It nearly seemed that the awesome run of quite possibly the funniest show on television would end without a fight from anyone but the actors and the fans - at least until NBC stepped in and picked the show up.More news: How does the NBA Draft Lottery work?

The cancelation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine by Fox sent shockwaves across the internet, as fans of the incredible comedy series took to the (virtual) streets in demand of its renewal.
What it's about:This comedy, which is written by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day, centers on four men in a retirement community whose alpha status is challenged by the arrival of a female rebel looking to shake things up.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar ("Pitch", "Franklin & Bash", "NYPD Blue") will star in "The Passage", a midseason drama about a secret medical facility experimenting with a unsafe virus that could end the human race - or cure many diseases.
"Thursday Night Football" moves to Fox after splitting both the 2016 and 2017 seasons between CBS and NBC. And again, we were trying to create a more cohesive schedule, and scheduling "Brooklyn' was going to prevent us from launching something new".
"And that certainly made us think that this is a really good opportunity, that for broadcast viewers a beloved star in a really amusing multi-cam that has, again, a little bit easier entry point than a serialized comedy was a good idea".
