Tim Allen returns to sitcom TV for ABC show


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ever since Tim Allen’s smash-hit sitcom “Home Improvement” went off the air in 1999 (after nearly a decade-long run of ratings dominance), TV executives have been trying to figure out a way to get Allen and his toolbelt back on the airwaves.

Sounds like ABC might have figured out a way to make it happen.

Allen’s new show “Last Man Standing” will anchor a Tuesday night of new comedies, according to the ABC scheduled revealed this morning. Paired with the 8:30 p.m. sitcom “Man Up,” Allen will go after CBS’ “NCIS,” which has performed well in the ratings up to this point.

“We’re thrilled to be launching a really diverse and ambitious schedule that balances the strength and stability of our returning hits with a slew of bold new shows,” said Paul Lee, president of ABC’s Entertainment Group.

In addition to the comedies, ABC plans to introduce “Revenge,” a recount of the Count of Monte Cristo story, and a revamped “Charlie’s Angels” for Thursday night.
