It’s not just “Roseanne 2.0” that’s suffering in the ratings of conservative turnaround.
Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing,” transplanted from ABC to Fox, was down 255,000 viewers in its post World Series return.
On Friday, the comedy scored 6,026,000 viewers. Two weeks ago, it was up to 6,281,000.
“Last Man Standing” was also beaten in total viewers at 8pm by “McGyver” on CBS. Later in the evening, at 10pm, another conservative in a better show, Tom Selleck in “Blue Bloods,” scored over 8 million and was the top rated show for the night.
“Last Man” is now going to be watched closely to see if it is already fading a la “The Conners” on ABC.
