last-man-on-earth-fox-cancelledDescription: THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is a new single-camera comedy about the life and adventures of the last man on earth. PHIL MILLER (Forte) was once just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job at the bank – now he’s humanity’s last hope. Will he ever find another person alive on the planet? Would hoping that she is a female be asking too much? FOX.com

Status: (Updated 11/22/16) This show’s numbers remain on the low side for FOX and have it firmly On the Bubble. But it has survived into a third season living on that status, so maybe it can stick around further. It was preempted this last Sunday for the World Series but returns next week with a new episode.

    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

    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.
