For those that are hoping the Fox resurgence of “Last Man Standing” crushes ABC in the ratings for their politically-reasoned cancelling of the show, you’ll love the new promo that includes the show’s stars, Tim Allen and Nancy Travis.

While the new time slot (Friday’s at 8 p.m. beginning this fall) for the Allen-led show brings back memories of watching Allen’s old show “Home Improvement” on ABC’s once-great TGIF lineup, the new “Last Man Standing” promo takes a subtle jab at ABC for letting the highly-rated show go.

Take a look:


Okay, maybe it wasn’t so subtle. But — if you’re a fan of the show — you can’t tell me at least one corner of your mouth didn't crack a grin when Allen said, “I know somebody’s gonna be happy you said that three times.”

Good for Fox for not being afraid to pick up a show that isn’t all SJW, modern feminist, liberals-only drivel.

ABC's loss is Fox’s gain.
