Update: Last Man Standing’s season premiere drew a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating and 7.84 million viewers and the series premiere of Malibu Country scored a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating and 8.9 million viewers in the preliminary Nielsen numbers

Tonight ABC is attempting to bring back the glory days of its 1980s and 1990s  TGIF line-up of family friendly multi-camera comedies with the premieres of Last Man Standing and Malibu Country. Can Tim Allen and Reba fill the Olsen Twins tiny shoes? Was it a bad idea to move the night’s biggest hit Shark Tank to 9PM?

Last season, Last Man Standing premiered to a strong 3.6 adults 18-49 rating on Tuesday October 11, 2011. The ratings for the May 8, 2012 season finale fell to a 1.7 among adults 18-49.

Reba is a popular actress whose previous sit-com on the WB, Reba, made it to syndication. But ABC’s other country music themed show, Nashville, has been a mediocre performer despite a ton of promotion. The lower ratings for last night’s CMA Awards don’t seem like a good omen.
