Friday comedies have performed respectably for Alphabet

ABC has given a five-episode pickup to both of its Friday laffers, “Last Man Standing” and “Malibu Country.”

Toplined by Tim Allen, “Last Man” hails from 20th Century Fox TV. Reba McEntire starrer “Malibu” is from ABC Studios. With the order for “Malibu,” which is less than the standard back-nine pickup, ABC has given full-season nods to three of its frosh series: drama “Nashville” and comedies “The Neighbors.”
