The Cool Kids, Last Man Standing, Rel: FOX Previews Fall 2018 Comedies

On Monday, the Fox network held its upfront, unveiling trailers for the new shows that will join the network's schedule during the 2018-19 TV season, including an intriguing new drama featuring former "Saved By the Bell" star Mark-Paul Gosselaar, a senior-citizen sitcom set in a retirement home, a new iteration of the Seth MacFarlane-produced "Cosmos" and the return of Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", which is being revived by Fox after ABC cancelled the show previous year.

Here's a look at the Fox fall schedule, with new shows in CAPS.

"But the reality is here the fans of "Last Man Standing" wouldn't leave this alone", Allen added. The network did not own the show but was licensing it from 20th Century Fox.

Then it was Allen's - the newest, old Fox star - turn to address the advertisers and press.

While its rivals are focused on what plays all around the world, they noted, New Fox will be focused on what plays stateside - and what draws live audiences. "Are you getting it back?'" Allen continued. "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".

The "Last Man Standing" revival, much like its cancellation, can't hide from the stench of politics. I thought reality TV would be good, 'Naked and Really Afraid.' And the reason I bring that up is because, actually, one of my best buddies - real story - is the editor on 'Naked and Afraid.' And one day I said, 'You've seen enough views of men climbing up dirt without any trousers on, that you actually prefer one to another.' And he goes, 'Yeah that actually happens.

The series originally aired on CMT in Canada before its cancellation; as of this writing, it's unclear where Canadians can watch the revival (other than Fox).

Fox executives announced they're "very happy" favorite cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has found a new home at NBC.

From executive producer Charlie Day ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), THE COOL KIDS is a multi-camera comedy about a rag-tag group of friends living in a retirement community who are willing to break every rule in order to have fun - because, at their age, what do they really have to lose?

"I would say ultimately, if we have a great opportunity and a big eventized first episode, that's a show we would order". "It's performed best in our Sunday night lineup, and we made a decision this year, which was, we wanted to give Bob's Burgers, the Emmy-winning, huge performer for us, an opportunity to have a plum time period and to really grow".

FOX has five new scripted series - new to its schedule, anyway - plus the return of "Cosmos" on its schedule for 2018-19. "I said, 'Look, I don't know".

"And a fist pump, ouch, for Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans but for making the bold move to bring "Last Man Standing" back. Well, just goes to show you - a lot can happen in a year".
