Description: THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is a new single-camera comedy about the life and adventures of the last man on earth.

Status: (Updated 11/15/17) This show’s fourth season numbers are a little soft, but it is at the point that one more season makes it more attractive to the syndication market, so it has a chance to survive a bit longer. But it could definitely use a Call to Action from its fans to push it in that direction.

    Once it got going , it’s pretty funny in a dark humor and absurdist kind of way. The bottom line is this: I’m laughing pretty hard.

    Simple? Yes. Stupid? Yes. Funny? Of course!!! My girl friend and I laughed so much!
    The characters are so well played! We love the program. Watch it in Hulu _every-week!
    So — that was it? 12 episodes and gone? Come on!!! What does the American public want?
    Blood? Profanity? Non-sense Reality Shows? The Last Man on Earth is an original idea that
    has great potential. DO NOT CANELL IT — P-L-E-A-S-E!!!

    When I first heard Will Forte of SNL was doing a a postapocalyptic sitcom for FOX–I had Great Expectations–well honest to Dickens–absolutey NONE of them were MET! That thing stinks on ice !I honestly think he is just taking the money and running! Poor uS! Mike Roe

      Jackie Chan stupid humor?? No. Not even close to the stupidity of this one.

    I am happy to see it renewed — It is nutty and corney with a subplot of sex but it is highly likeable and entertaining to a dimwitted 70 year old lady like me.

    It’s time to marginalize Will forte. The remaining cast carries the show. Forte’s character has been reduced to an irritating also-ran who’s completely unnecessary facial hair and constant bumbling and failed social skills are becoming a frustrating distraction from the real talent on the show. I’d hate to see this show cancelled because forte’s over-written character disrupted the balance, but maybe it is time for “Tandy” to “accidentally die” and let everyone be sad for a bit before moving on to even better adventures!

    Sometimes Phil is a little too stupid, an unbelievable level of clueless, I wish they’d tone it down a bit. The fun aspect of the show for me, is the imaginative ways the characters find to garner resources and entertainment for themselves. There’s a fantasy element: what would you do if you could go anywhere you wanted, live in any grand house, do anything you wanted?
