The Season 8 — and Thursday — premiere for Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” halved the demo rating the sitcom opened to last time.To be fair to Fox, the previous season premiere marked the comedy’s highly anticipated comeback after ABC’s cancellation. It was also scheduled for the fall, not winter, which is generally the higher-rated portion of the traditional television season. But the Season 7 opener aired on a Friday, which is generally lower-rated than Thursday nights.Finally, last night’s season premiere was one hour long, the (semi-)comparable one in September 2018 was just 30 minutes.So it all depends on how you look at it.Also Read: Golden Globes 2020: Can the Awards Show Buck Ratings Trends Again?Anyway, Fox won primetime in the key demo but finished second in terms of total viewers.
