    Loved last season. Wish they hadn’t killed Phil though :-(
    Last Sunday’s episode was kind of a drag but I am hooked….. :-)

    I love this show! Thank you FOX for renewing it. Each episode is better than the one before and hilarious!!

      The quality must be why the ratings are so bad. At least FOX finally got rid of Mindy Flops… Of course it wouldn’t have had to get rid of it had it not renewed it like it just did Last Man…

      What a horrible waste of good money… :(

    This is a very well crafted and cleverly written show, which zigs and zags in all kinds of inventive and crazy directions. Thank you, President Forte, for this unique tv gem.

    I’m so glad it’s renewed. A fun show! Only wish the season lasted longer.

  6. Eric says:

    Good, original show. I like it.

  7. Sandy Muller says:

    It is unique. Glad a truly original show is being embraced. Good job Will!

    • Rena Moretti says:

      I wanted to say it was uniquely low-rated, but it’s not true. FOX is littered with flops like Last Man on Earth.

      Why they fired Kevin Reilly if it was to renew more flops, I’ll never understand.
