    Great for Last Man Standing. I hope this show stays around for years to come. Such a good comedy, doesn’t rely on sex jokes to make the laughs. Reminded me of Reba from back in 2001.

    ABC better not cancel it, they would be making a big mistake (see Body of Proof).

    ABC has a Friday night line up that works right now. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it carry on throughout the season. I truly think they’ll leave everything the way it is and then wait until May to see what should happen next.
