Last Man Standing: articles

Last Man falls

THE declining interest in quality home-grown television drama claimed another victim yesterday.

Seven said poor ratings for the heavily hyped and critically supported Last Man Standing meant it would not go into a second series.

The “dramady” about 30-something blokes navigating the pitfalls of modern life debuted in June.

But it languished with around 750,000 weekly viewers - 400,000 below the numbers needed for prime-time survival.

Seven will air all 21 episodes produced, the station’s programmer Tim Worner said.
